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.
Another superfood, turmeric is often used in ayurvedic treatments, thanks to it being antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and rich in antioxidants. Curcumin, the compound found in turmeric, not only gives the spice its beautiful bright color, but may also prevent Alzheimer’s, certain cancers, and blood clots.
