Having children may make you feel older, but you don’t have to look older! Certain foods can help, like edamame. These young soybeans are great for you. That’s good news already, but it turns out that this tasty little legume may even help prevent wrinkles!
A recent Japanese study found that women who ate foods containing 40 mg of soy isoflavones each day for eight weeks saw an improvement in their skin elasticity. After 12 weeks, they noticed a reduction in fine lines.
If you ask me, edamame are the healthiest soy food and should be a regular part of your diet. In addition to being loaded with protein and fiber, they contain omega-3 fatty acids. While essential for health, omega 3’s have also been linked to a reduction in wrinkles, making edamame doubly good for your skin!
Edamame are available in most grocery stores and simple to add to your diet. Eat them as a snack, put them in salads or add them to rice and pasta dishes. Try my summery quinoa for a delicious way to eat edamame!
