For many of us, getting older is a welcomed phase in our lives. We view smile and laugh lines as indicators of long-term happiness. A little pudge around the waist means good eating and bounty. We even welcome gray hairs as a sign of wisdom and embrace the idea of being matriarchs and patriarchs of our families.
On the other end of the spectrum, there are those of us who will fight off the effects of aging at any cost. Most folks fall somewhere in the middle and lean towards more cosmetic ways to improve our appearance. Things like exercising a bit more, moisturizing, and hair dye. You see, factors like age, genetics, smoking, and vitamin deficiencies all play a part in when gray hairs start to spring up and how much gray hair you get. You realize that, like it or not, we will all see a gray hair or two if we live long enough.
What you probably didn't realize is that nutrition might be the a root of the problem! Some of the foods that you might be eating are speeding up the aging process and giving you silver streaks prematurely. The good news is that you can do something about it! If you are ready to stop the grays from rearing their ugly heads and, perhaps, even turn back the clock a few years, banish these five foods from your diet. Your body and your coif will thank you!
