On a Health Note…Antioxidants

Do you know why antioxidants are so important to our diets?

Antioxidants are compounds that help protect our cells from oxidized toxins and aid in their removal. They help our cells continue to function optimally, protecting them from premature aging and “cellular rusting” so to speak. Consuming foods rich in antioxidants may be good for your heart health and helping to lower your risk of infections.

We just need foods rich in antioxidants! However, it doesn’t happen easily in today’s diet!

Antioxidants are a substance that inhibits oxidation, especially one used to counteract the deterioration of stored food products.

Friends, you really need to supplement to attain the levels needed to accomplish the desired effects in today’s depleted world. What does that translate to? Using the proper supplementation will allow you to stay boosted, especially with your immune system. That’s what battles the bad stuff we come in contact with in our bodies! Believe me, there’s a war going on!

From PNN 7/8/16

“There are many exogenous substances out there that have antioxidant properties, but some of the most effective are thought to be vitamins A, C and E as well as beta-carotene and lycopene.

Vitamin C is the most abundant water-soluble antioxidant in the body while vitamin E is the most abundant fat-soluble antioxidant in the body. Together these substances (along with many others) help to defend against cellular damage caused by oxidation which can lead to serious and long-term health problems.

Then there are berries! Berries are not only delicious fruits, but many of them have extremely high levels of antioxidant compounds present. The levels of antioxidants present in food is measured by what is called the oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC for short) and will test the capacity to absorb and eliminate free radicals. Many types of berries have a high ORAC score, like goji berries with 25,000 ORAC, wild blueberries with 14,000 ORAC, elderberries with 14,000 ORAC, cranberries with 9,500 ORAC and blackberries with 5,300 ORAC. After learning this information, you’ve never had a better reason to get those berries into your morning smoothie!” ~ activebeat.com
