We’re forever hearing that we should be consuming antioxidant-rich food and supplements, but do you really understand what antioxidants are and the role they play in the body?
Allow us to simplify it for you.
Well for starters – ever heard of Free Radicals?
Free Radicals are uncharged molecules that are super reactive and damaging to your DNA and tissues through a process called ‘oxidative stress’.
Ok, so it’s not so simple – but it’s the simplest way put.
The point is they’re bad, and they’re after your DNA.
Oxidative stress has been associated with the following health conditions;
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Significant aging/wrinkling
- Heart disease
- Auto-immune disorders
Honestly, the list goes on and on.
It’s connected to so many diseases.
So how do we stop this?
Well the truth is – Free Radicals can never be fully prevented since they’re always generated.
Fortunately, we can slow them right down with help from our trusty antioxidants.
Antioxidants are a substance that are the answer to our enemies (Free Radicals) and can be found in the following nutrients;
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
Just to clear it up, the benefits we get from antioxidants are;
- Delayed signs of aging of the brain, heart, skin tissues and the joints
- Heavily reducing the risk of cancer
- Heavily reducing heart disease and stroke
- Promotes healthy and youthful skin
- Boosts greater brain health and cognition, reducing disk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
Now that we know what Free Radicals are and why they’re no good, make the change today to live the best version of you.
