Food plays an important role in maintaining the health of the body's organs, as the person gets energy and nourishment from food after analyzing and absorbing it in the digestive system, thus obtaining the necessary nutrients.
According to "Sputnik", many people spend money on plastic surgery, because these operations can return some of the characteristics of youth to the face, or specifically to the skin, through tightening operations, but the cells that make up this skin and the cells of our body are not affected by this process, because their age does not change with these stretching operations.
But although plastic surgery can not affect human cells, the diet directly affects the performance of human cells and organs, because vitamins and minerals are involved in the main functions it performs, including metabolism and other vital processes for the body.
According to the article published in the American magazine "Eat This, Not That", scientists have confirmed the existence of 5 vitamins that are directly related to reducing the speed of the human aging process, due to their direct effects on cells and organs, including:
1- Vitamin D
Many studies have highlighted the benefits of "vitamin D" on the immune system, but have overlooked one of its most important roles, which is the prevention of osteoporosis.
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, as calcium is directly involved in the process of supporting and repairing bones and building bone density.
In addition, "vitamin D" is one of the most important elements supporting muscle metabolism, which decreases with age, so supporting a person with this vitamin prevents a decrease in muscle mass.
2- Vitamin C
Most studies confirm that "vitamin C" is one of the most powerful antioxidants known, which provides immune support and prevents free radicals responsible for many damages to the human body.
But there is another task for "vitamin C", which is the production of collagen, which is one of the proteins that keep the skin fresh and is mainly responsible for youth.
According to a 2021 study and scientific review published in the journal Molecular Biology Reports, vitamin C can also protect against the shortening of telomeres, the parts of the chromosome that contain DNA information that become shorter with age.
3- Vitamin K
In a large scientific review that included several studies published in 2021 in the Journal of Antioxidants, researchers noted that research "has shown that vitamin K is a critical cofactor in the activation of several proteins that act against age-related syndromes."
And the scientists stated in their study, that among the benefits of "vitamin K": "It helps prevent atherosclerosis and heart disease, improves cognitive function, increases the body's sensitivity to insulin and fights cancer."
4- Vitamin A
Vitamin A is the basis of the retinoid complex, the gold standard of anti-aging skin care, as described in the article.
Studies indicate that certain compounds prescribed in medical clinics, such as Turkish "Retin-A", in addition to some retinol-containing products, are responsible for increasing skin cell regeneration, smoothing fine lines and reducing wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. This vitamin contributes to its support.
In addition to the role of vitamin A in supporting the skin and reducing its aging, this vitamin plays a central role in cognitive functions, including supporting the parts of the brain dedicated to memory and learning.

5- Vitamin E
Animal studies suggest that another powerful antioxidant that protects cells from stress and oxidative damage, and may play a central role in promoting healthy aging, is vitamin E.
Some research has shown that vitamin E may have neuroprotective benefits, helping to maintain a healthy brain and heart.
