8Green coffee is something you should definitely try

If you have been wondering what green coffee actually is, you should know that green coffee is made of green coffee beans that haven't been roasted, meaning that they have more nutrients, as a result. The amount of antioxidant present in this type of coffee is tremendous, which in turn means that it can help fight aging.

A study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania confirmed what we all suspected. When you eat is just as important as what you eat as it plays an essential role in your health, not to mention the fact that if you want to lose weight, the timing really does make a huge difference. So try to eat earlier in the day, and by earlier we mean from 8 am to 7 pm, because not only is this going to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart diseases, but you are also going to feel more energetic throughout the day.

9Strong bones are essential

Unfortunately, as we age, our body tends to absorb less calcium from food, which in turn means that the body is taking the necessary calcium from our bones, making them weaker than they have ever been. That's why it is of high importance if you are over 40, that you include more dairy products, seeds, beans, and almonds in your diet. For they are rich in calcium, which is exactly what is needed to make your bones strong again.

10Bring some color to your table

If you are wondering what it is about some fruits and vegetables that makes them so bright and colorful, the answer lies in the special antioxidant called anthocyanin. And it is fruits and vegetables rich in this antioxidant, like blueberries, cherries, or purple cabbage, that help with cardiovascular disease.
