Wrinkle Reversal Studies with Farm Box Veggies 

*Hydration: Keeping your skin well-hydrated from the inside out is one of the best ways to prevent dry skin and wrinkles. High water content foods, broccoli, kale, spinach and leafy greens will keep your skin hydrated and healthy, helping to protect the skin from premature aging, rooibos tea and probiotics are also helpful. Omega fatty acids -3, -6, and -9 found in healthy fats and oils are vital because they become part of the skin cell walls. “If the skin cell walls are plump and healthy, the skin will look more hydrated and dewy as well”. Remain hydrated WITH HIGH-WATER-CONTENT FOODS. “Avoid foods that create inflammation (processed sugars, high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, processed meats, soybean oil, excessive alcohol) and cause aging”.
*Firmness: Molecules that keep the skin firm, [phytoceramides, plant-based ceramides], are found in wheat germ, brown rice, spinach and beets, and protect the skin’s outer layer.
*Brightness: Many fruits and vegetables, as well as potatoes, nuts, beans, legumes, meat, poultry and fish are potassium-rich and can offset the sodium causing dark circles.
*Elasticity:Another cause of wrinkles and saggy skin is the weakening of collagen and elastin in the skin that happens as we age. The best collagen-boosting food is organic bone broth. The collagen process also requires vitamin C in citrus fruits, red and green peppers, tomatoes, broccoli and greens. (Also boost collagen production with: collagen, hyaluronic acid, retinol, retinoids–such as tretinoin and retin-A, )
*Repair cells:Amino acids found in protein sources can help rebuild and repair damage. Salmon, walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, coconut oil, olive oil and avocado are all amino acid rich.
*Damage Prevention:   Avoid processed, packaged and fast foods, as well as gluten, dairy and sugar. “Eating too much sugar will make you more prone to wrinkles and make you age quicker,” he said.
