1. “Get hydrated”- Water is the most essential ingredient for running the body’s system’s at optimal levels, Water plays a major part in digesting and absorbing nutrients, water must be replenished almost constantly for the body to stay young and healthy, it is the one thing we must do. Pure, filtered, spring water. Even... mild dehydration can slow our metabolism by 3 %. 2. Retain your health and youthfulness - Eat more plants - a low calorie, high nutrient dense diet has been shown to prolong life. 3. Go Nuts- Nuts and seeds contain compact energy in the form of protein, fats, carbohydrates and many minerals. To reap their youth - preserving benefits, include a few different varieties daily, you do not need many 10-15 a day is plenty - go for Brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds as an alternative option too! 4. The correct consumption of fruit - Eat your fruit in isolation always on its own not mixed with other foods. When you mix fruit with protein or carbohydrates this is wrong food combining causing fermentation and purification and poor digestion, doing this regularly will cause gut health problems. 5. Correct food combining- eat protein and vegetables and carbohydrates and vegetables, but do not eat protein and carbs together. 6. Hormone havoc- Avoid soy milk, unfermented soy is an endocrine (hormone) disruptor and is bad news, so cut those soy latte’s ladies opt for almond milk. 7. Did you know - 1 cucumber contains vitamins B1,B2,B3,B5, B6 and vitamin C as well as folic acid, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc - WOW, put one in your green smoothie every day!!! 8. Fantastic Fat’s- we need fats in our diet every day. Good fats are an essential nutrient and the body cannot run properly without them. 505 of the cells membrane is made of fat, The brain cells membrane is 70% fat. Good fats are located in foods like olive oil, nuts and seeds, avocadoes, evening primrose oil, flaxseed oil, fish; symptoms of an EFA deficiency are many: low energy, dry itchy skin, impaired immune, inflammation, depression and brain health to name a few. 9. Get lots of vitamin D! Vitamin D has health benefits that are most commonly associated with bone health, but it is also involved in supporting the immune and nervous systems, as well as brain function.
