For all the miracle products promising to turn back the clock in one way or another, there really is no anti-aging cream or cleanser on the market that can outdo Mother Nature herself. More often than not, we all have the power to boost our energy levels, rejuvenate our appearance and even rev up our sex lives simply by turning to all-natural ingredients.
Case in point: A recent study conducted in Tuscany has indicated that beefing up your diet with fruits, vegetables, legumes, tea and other items that are brimming with antioxidant polyphenols may be an easy and delicious way to enjoy a longer lifespan and ward off various medical concerns that tend to crop up later in life.
"The research published on Journal of Nutrition is based on a 12-year follow-up of a population sample composed by 807 men and women aged 65 or over from Greve and Bagno [in Italy]," the online news outlet ScienceDaily reports.
Polyphenols are a highly nutritious family of antioxidants that can help battle inflammation and keep free radicals in our systems from wreaking havoc on healthy cells. The study showed that a polyphenol-laden diet was linked to a substantial drop in mortality rates of up to 30 percent.
With that in mind, you may want to consider incorporating more polyphenols in your diet – and thankfully, quite a few foods with this compound are also natural aphrodisiacs that can outdo the best warming lubricant. As we've touched on before, cocoa is an excellent source of polyphenols and a great way to stir up some sensual sensations between you and your partner. So be on the lookout for this healthy compound and prepare for a boost in your overall physical and sexual health.
