The 4 Ultimate Secrets of Healthy People
Secret 1: An Optimised Digestion
Literally each and every molecule that makes up your body is a byproduct of what you eat. It’s not so much a case of what you eat, but what your body digests and absorbs. Except from oxygen, all other nutrients required by your body has to go through your digestive tract. If you were to look closely to your digestive tract you would see a squiggly wall of protrusions called Villi (illustrated by the curly looking lines in the image below). Villi is a fundamental barrier between you (the cells that make up your body) and the food that you eat.
Every food you put in your body has to be broken down by special enzyms. The main purpose of digestion being to turn the food into fuel to power up your body cells. So make sure you eat easily digestible for this cell-powering process to take action as fast as possible, else your body almost runs into a power-cut!
A healthy diet that is easily digested contains lots of fiber, healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids and primarily, water! Make sure to chew your food well because digestion process starts in the mouth already. Poor chewing results into a decreased nutrient absorption. It goes without saying that in order to optimise your digestion you have to give up bad habits such as smoking, alcohol consumption and late-night eating.

Where to get the most antioxidants?
Generally speaking, just find the most colourful natural foods and you will have the most antioxidants. For example, the reds, yellows and oranges of tomatoes, pepper and carrots are cased by an abundant presence of beta carotene which is full of antioxidants. The highest rating among all vegetables with antioxidants is Artichoke. But it is important to know that not all fruits and vegetables have the same anti-ageing touch. The best method to assess the antioxidant power is to measure the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity) of a particular food. The oldest living people consume around 6000 ORACs a day!
