Experts Recommend Tomatoes, oats, Almonds For 40-Plus

A recent report showed what must be ideally consumed after the age of 40. Experts have listed out tomatoes, oats, almonds and fish among those food items which after the age of 40 becomes a must to avert the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.

Unhealthy lifestyle including poor eating habits and lack of exercise could deteriorate health to a he extent and that's what makes tings all the more alarming for experts too.

It has further been explained that just 3g of oats daily can reduce the total cholesterol by five to ten per cent, while oats contain beta-glucans, which is a soluble fibre playing crucial role in reducing the unhealthy form of cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL).

It is known that with the trimming down of total cholesterol by mere one percent, the risk attached with heart diseases reduces by some 2%. With tomatoes containing the antioxidant lycopene, it is believed to be a 'wonder-food' for the 40-plus. Apparently, 150ml of tomato juice after 20 minutes of exercise was found to avert risk attached with prostate, lung and stomach cancers and heart disease.

There is dire need for one and all to understand the ideal food for a healthy body before they succumb to avoidable diseases.
