Dr Oz: 3 New Anti-Aging Foods from the Cleveland Clinic
If you are a fan of Dr Oz, you know that what you eat can affect your health? The Cleveland Clinic has three new anti-aging foods that you may want to add to your shopping list: Teff, Beluga Lentils, and Shichimi Togarashi. Dr Oz also put together a team of dermatologists to share some anti-aging beauty products you may not already be using.
Registered dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick helped Dr Oz learn about the new foods. Each of the chosen foods must meet the following criteria:
- Shown to significantly reduce inflammation and chronic disease risks
- Strong studies (preferably human trials) demonstrating longevity
- Lack of known aging compounds (sugar, salt, saturated fat)
Dr Oz: Shichimi Togarashi Spice Powder
Help your heart avoid aging with the first food on the list. Shichimi Togarashi may be hard to pronounce, but it is a seven-spice powder containing many healthy tastes, including orange powder, seaweed, sesame seeds and more.
You can find this spice blend in the ethnic food aisle or an Asian specialty food store. Kirkpatrick said it is affordable and may become more popular soon.
Dr Oz: Teff World’s Tiniest Grain
Teff is the world’s tiniest grain, and it is naturally gluten-free, as well as high in calcium and Vitamin C. About 40% of the grain is a Resistant Starch, Kirkpatrick said. How would you use it in food? The flour can be used to make a flatbread, or you can boil it as a cereal. Look for it online or in health food stores.
Dr Oz: Beluga Lentils Meal Ideas
Fuel your brain with another Cleveland Clinic-approved food. Beluga Lentils are proven to help manage or prevent chronic disease. The rich black color makes them even healthier, reducing brain inflammation and providing an iron-rich protein source and a steady stream of glucose for brain function.
Kirkpatrick told Dr Oz you can prepare it plain as a side dish or mince it with garlic and onions to stuff peppers. Soups and burgers are other Beluga Lentils serving options, so go wild for your health.
