With advancement in technology and medicine, life expectancy is increasing every minute but living longer does not mean quality living. Yeditepe University claims that it is possible to age well with a balanced diet, regular exercise, a healthy sleep routine and a little bit of magic from herbs, vegetables and fruits that you can find in your local market.

Tomatoes, which are also rich in vitamins A and C as well as folic acid, should be consumed raw or cooked to age well.
“In order to age well, you have to live well,” said Terekeci. “A healthy diet, regular exercise and sleep routine are crucial but this kind of a lifestyle should continue throughout your life.
