I've searched a lot about anti-aging and all I found is cosmetics and supplements to slow down the aging process. I tried natural too but all they suggest is some foods and there is no enough detail how, I can't directly trust anything. Can anyone help me with an anti-aging diet?

For starters, if you go to the popular website ergo-log, you'll find a lot of studies posted about components of an "anti-aging diet".

For example, here's a promising study in this article found on ergo-log, regarding the possible anti-cancer effects of lycopene. Studies also show, of course, that lycopene is also good for your skin (to help rebuild collagen, work as an antioxidant, etc.), both when applied topically, and when taken internally.

And by far, the best source of lycopene is tomato paste. And since lycopene is fat soluble, you have to eat tomato paste with fat; such as olive oil (extra virgin, cold pressed). And olive oil appears to have anti-aging effects too; if we were to go by the studies listed on ergo-log, and on the website "examine".

This study (from ergo-log) was done using lycopene "in vitro", not "in vivo".

Enhanced with lycopene, Natural Killer Cells are better cancer fighters

A diet with lots of vegetables and fruit protects against almost every chronic disease, and that is partly because vegetables and fruit are sources of carotenoids such as lycopene, lutein and beta-carotene. Chinese researchers published an in vitro study that reveals at least one way in which carotenoids protect health: they prolong the life of the Natural Killer cells that clean up cancer cells in our body.

Study


The researchers extracted Natural Killer cells from the blood of volunteers, and preserved them 3 weeks before they started experimenting. Natural Killer cells begin to age after that period. The Chinese preserved some of the cells in serum with some added lycopene.

Results
The Natural Killer cells exposed to lycopene held out longer in the researchers' petri dishes and test tubes than did the cells in the control group.

When the researchers brought their Natural Killer cells into contact with leukemic cells, they saw that the Natural Killer cells that had been exposed to lycopene remained longer able to clear up the cancer cells.

Lycopene also increased the amount of interferon-gamma that the Natural Killer cells produced. Interferon-gamma is a cytokine that is released when immune cells like Natural Killer cells terminate cancer cells.

Conclusion
Enhanced with lycopene, Natural Killer Cells are better cancer fighters
"Lycopene has the positive effect on Natural Killer cells by prolonging its lifespan, increasing its cytotoxicity and decreasing its apoptosis, which can be used as a health product to increase immunity", the researchers wrote.

They added that other carotenoids, like lutein, have the same effect on Natural Killer cells.

"Lutein is another carotenoid with no provitamin A activity", wrote the researchers. "Studies show that, dietary lutein increased IFN-gamma mRNA expression in splenocytes and decreased apoptosis in blood leukocytes of tumor bearing mice compared to un-supplemented ones." [Anticancer Res. 2003 Jul-Aug;23(4):3333-9.]

"Our results show that lycopene also significantly increases the Natural Killer cells IFN-gamma expression in gene and protein levels. The increased IFN-gamma secretion could help to increase the cytotoxicity of Natural Killer cells."

Another good site to consult for more info about an anti-aging diet is examine.
For example, if you go there and type in "blueberry", you'll find 4 studies (done "in vivo"), showing that eating blueberries, or drinking blueberry juice, or taking blueberry extract daily, can reduce oxidation-induced DNA damage by as much as 20%.

And any food that can reduce DNA damage would have some anti-aging effects, I would think.

And I think that "wild" blueberries would be be even more effective than "domestic" blueberries, in regards to their anti-aging effects. And that's because wild blueberries are even higher in antioxidants than domestic blueberries are.

Here's another promising study mentioned on ergo-log, about the anti-aging effects of alpha-carotene (not beta-carotene). Alpha carotene is a carotenoid found in significant amounts only in carrots and pumpkin, as far as I know. And since alpha-carotene is fat soluble, you need to eat the carrots or pumpkin with enough fat (such as olive oil), to absorb the alpha-carotene.


Alpha-carotene: the life elixir in carrots


Alpha-carotene, closely related to beta-carotene and found in large quantities in carrots, reduces the mortality rate in adults. In people with a high BMI, a high alpha-carotene intake can almost halve the risk of dying, epidemiologists at the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered.

Study
The researchers followed about fifty thousand Americans from the period 1988-1994 up to 2006 as part of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III). At the start of the study the NHANES III participants were 20 or older, and the researchers measured the concentration of alpha-carotene in their blood. In 2006 they determined which participants were still alive, and whether there was a relationship between survival and the previously measured alpha-carotene level.

Alpha-carotene: the life elixir in carrots
The best source of alpha-carotene is the common-or-garden carrot. About 75 percent of the alpha-carotene in a western diet comes from carrots. Two hundred grams of cooked carrots contain about 7.5 mg alpha-carotene, and about 16.5 mg beta-carotene.

Like beta-carotene, alpha-carotene can convert into vitamin A, but this happens to a lesser extent than in beta-carotene. Smokers or people who work with asbestos are better off avoiding supplements that contain high amounts of beta-carotene or vitamin A, as they increase their risk of developing lung cancer.

Vitamin A is a hormone that steers process of differentiation in cells, and it's probably a raised vitamin A level that makes beta-carotene supplements risky. However, beta-carotene from food sources has only positive health effects.

Results
The researchers discovered that the higher the level of alpha-carotene in their subjects' blood, the lower their risk of dying, as the figure below shows.


Alpha-carotene: the life elixir in carrots

Alpha-carotene had above all pronounced positive cardiovascular effects, as the figure above shows. But in fact, the high alpha-carotene intake reduced the mortality risk for all common causes of death.

When the researchers analysed their data more closely, they noticed that alpha-carotene reduced the mortality risk slightly more in people with a BMI of 30 or higher, in people aged between 45 and 65, and in people with healthy blood pressure. For these groups the reduction in mortality was about a half. But a high alpha-carotene level also reduced mortality by a few dozen percent in other groups too.

If you click on the table below a larger version will appear.


Alpha-carotene: the life elixir in carrots


To summarise: alpha-carotene has a positive effect on everything in everybody. And that’s special, say the researchers.

Conclusion
"Our findings showed that serum alpha-carotene concentrations were inversely associated with the risk of death from all causes and death from cardiovascular disease, cancer, and all causes other than cardiovascular disease and cancer", they conclude. "They also showed that the inverse association was independent of demographic characteristics, lifestyle habits, and traditional health risk factors."

Here's a study I found on ergo-log about the the anti-aging effects of lycopene (or more specifically "tomato puree", which contains lycopene) in human skin.
I actually mentioned this study on this site years ago. And it's now found on ergo-log.

I've also wondered if you can get the same effects as those described below simply by taking 2 capsules of Lyc-O-Mato each day. Lyc-O-Mato is a tomato extract product, that contains 30 mg of lycopene in 2 capsules. It also contains the other phytochemicals found in tomatoes, as well as Vitamin E (which works synergistically with lycopene).


Tomato puree protects skin against aging


Eat ten tablespoons of tomato puree a day, and you can reverse your skin's aging process. Dermatologists at the universities of Manchester and Newcastle announced this at the congress of the British Society for Investigative Dermatology. Tomato puree stimulates the manufacture of the protein procollagen in the skin. Procollagen gives the skin more structure and makes it stronger.

Tomato puree protects skin against aging
The researchers presented a small study they did with ten test subjects. For three months the subjects ate 55 g of tomato puree mixed with 10 g olive oil daily. The oil was added to increase the uptake of the bioactive substances in the tomato puree.

After the three months, the researchers discovered that not only had the production of procollagen in the skin 'significantly increased', but that the skin was also 30 percent more resistant to the harmful effects of UV radiation. UV radiation damages the DNA of skin cells, and thus accelerates the aging of the skin.

The protective effect of the tomato puree was comparable to using a light sun cream. The researchers warned however that tomato puree is not a substitute for sun cream, but that it can help.

Researcher and dermatologists, Lesley Rhodes of the University of Manchester is pleased with the result. "These increasing levels suggest potential reversal of the skin ageing process", she says. "These weren't huge amounts of tomato we were feeding the group. It was the sort of quantity you would easily manage if you were eating a lot of tomato-based meals."

The researchers suspect that lycopene is the active ingredient in tomato puree. However, if you add lycopene in pure form it only has a weak protective effect on the skin, the Brits think.

If you are looking for an anti-aging diet, then you should definitely include these items in your diet.
1.Tomatoes: Rich lycopene, which protects the skin from damage.
2.Blueberries: rich in antioxidants, and vitamin C, which helps prevent the wrinkling effects.
3.water melon: contains lycopene which helps in protecting the skin by acting as a natural sunblock and also protect it from ultraviolet rays that damage and age the skin.
4.Carrots: It is in vitamin A, which helps to restore and regenerate damaged collagen, an essential for the elasticity and regeneration of skin cells.
