Find out which sirtuin foods to buy.
By Reina Berger
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.
Known as one of Dr. Oz’s superfoods, red wine has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and even cancer-fighting potential. Made from purple grape skins and seeds, this beverage is high in polyphenols and resveratrol, which can help protect blood vessels from damage, reduce bad cholesterol, and prevent blood clots. Stick to one glass a day to reap the benefits.
