Stay Young: Eat These Superfoods

Pop by 'n say hi!Stay Young Stay young: eat superfoods. In previous posts on food we have looked at ten slimming foods to eat every day, like avocado, spinach and chocolate. We have also looked at food for healthy skin. In this post we look at three superfoods which can help you stay young. Stay Young: Eat Pomegranate Pomegranate is a rich source of ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is natural nutrient which help limit mutations in a cell’s DNA. Eating the fruit can keep you looking young by reducing wrinkles. Ellagic acid can also help fight cancer. As well as reduce wrinkles, pomegranates can also help protect the skin against damage from UV rays.

Stay Young: Take Vitamin B12 Dieticians typically recommend getting nutrients from food instead of supplements. However, 30% of adults over 50 have trouble absorbing Vitamin B12 according to research. Therefore those people may benefit from taking […]

Palladian Bridge Stourhead Landscape Garden

Pop by 'n say hi!Palladian Bridge Palladian Bridges rose to fame in England during the 18th century. The most famous Palladian Bridge in the country is probably the one at Prior Park in Somerset, South West England. Britain’s most famous landscape gardener Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown advised the creation of the Prior Park Palladian Bridge. Venetian architect Andrea Palladio inspired the Palladian Bridge. Palladio himself found inspiration in classical Ancient Greek and Roman architecture. Palladio’s architecture did not require expensive materials. This meant it was popular with those with financial constraints. Many of Palladio’s buildings are concentrated in a small area of modern day Italy, though his influence spread far wider. This is because he wrote ‘Quattro Libri dell’Architettura‘ meaning the Four Books of Architecture. The work set out the rules of architecture Palladio thought should be followed. Consequently the volumes were well read and even influenced British architect Sir Christopher Wren. In all there are four Palladian bridges left in the world. Another famous Palladian bridge is the one at Stourhead in Wiltshire, England. The further two Palladian Bridges are at Stowe in Buckinghamshire and Wilton near Salisbury. Stourhead The post photograph features the Palladian bridge at Stourhead in Wiltshire […]
