There really are more things available now than ever before to combat the very natural process of aging. Despite aging being a very inevitable component of life, assuming you live to be old enough to age, we as a society are very much opposed to accepting aging and would much rather fight it off with every known resource available to us.
I get it; aging isn’t exactly desirable in terms of what it does to the body and our physical appearance, but at the same time, it is a means for us to show our stripes and should, I think, be far more normalized and accepted in a social context than it is currently, but that is just my two cents.
Regardless of my stance, there are a lot of folks who will not agree with me, hence why I wanted to share the following article from The Good News Network describing a juice that could, when consumed, diminish signs of aging. Take a look.
“Drinking a certain root vegetable juice promotes a mix of mouth bacteria associated with healthier blood vessels and brain function, according to a new study of people aged 70-80.
“Certain foods including lettuce, spinach, and celery are rich in inorganic nitrate, and many oral bacteria play a role in turning nitrate to nitric oxide, which helps to regulate blood vessels and neurotransmission, or chemical messages in the brain.
“Older people tend to have lower nitric oxide production, and this is associated with poorer vascular (blood vessel) and cognitive (brain) health.
“In a new University of Exeter study, 26 healthy older people took part in two 10-day supplementation periods: one with nitrate-rich beetroot juice and another with nitrate-free placebo juice, which they drank twice a day.
“The results, published in Redox Biology, showed higher levels of bacteria associated with good vascular and cognitive health, and lower levels of bacteria linked to disease and inflammation,” the article says.
Go get your hands on some beetroot juice, folks.
