Studies have shown that foods high in sirtuins (proteins that regulate metabolic and cellular functions), may play a role in increasing our longevity, reducing inflammation, and potentially aiding in weight loss as well. If you’re nervous that this diet plan will be miserably restrictive, you’re in luck: these sirtuin-activating foods are not only full of good-for-you polyphenols, they are also diverse, delicious, and can be incorporated into your meals in a number of creative ways.
Red onions are not only a low-calorie, flavor-boosting addition to any meal, they may also reduce your risk of developing certain cancers, due to the compound quercetin. Onions are a significant source of antioxidants, and are rich in vitamin C which gives your immune system a welcomed boost.
