There are many benefits of antioxidants. They have major significance in the prevention of many diseases. This includes cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, some forms of cancer, and age-related disorders.
|Your body needs antioxidants to:• Slow down aging, live longer
• Look and feel healthier, younger and more vibrant
• Fight off most any degenerative disease
• Reduce the risk of cancer
Even in the 1990s, people still weren’t generally aware of what antioxidants did. Many people thought that they were a digestion aid.
Now, most people know that antioxidants are vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that work as a network to keep the body youthful, the heart strong, and the mind clear.
Antioxidants prevent oxidation.
Antioxidants have long been used to prevent foods from spoiling.
If they do that to food, imagine what they are doing for the inside of your body!
An apple turns brown when you slice it – it’s called oxidation. The inside of our bodies suffer a similar reaction over time, with the accumulation of free radical damage.
By squirting lemon (a powerful vitamin C antioxidant) on the apple, you can prevent it from turning brown as fast. This is similar to how the benefits of antioxidants save our bodies from “spoilage” (disease and aging).
Eating a diet high in these nutrients, and even helping it along with therapeutic antioxidant supplementation, has tremendous benefits for your mental and physical health.
“By controlling free radicals, antioxidants can make the difference between life and death, as well as influence how fast and how well we age.
The more you understand about antioxidants and how they work, the more you will understand and appreciate the profound role they have in keeping you healthy and happy.
Their role in the human body is nothing less than miraculous.”
• Do you need coffee in the morning?
• Do you have a hard getting to sleep?
• Do you get aches in your joints?
• Is your hair too oily or dry?
• Do you have acne, blemishes, zits, blackheads or dry skin?
• Do you sweat excessively?
• Is your pee a bright or dark yellow color?
• Do you get constipation, diarrhea or nausea?
• Do you have low energy and no motivation to exercise?
• Does your weight get in the way of things you want to do?
• Do you get too sore the day after you exercise?
• Do you have cellulite?
• Do you have bad breath?
…The list goes on.
If your answer is yes for any of these, it’s because you aren’t getting the benefits of enough antioxidants in your system.
As Bryce Wylde from the Antioxidant Prescription says, “We live in an era strangely cursed and blessed”.
The toxins that create free radicals surround us! There’s no getting away from them.
Free radical creating factors are in our water, our soil, our air, and embedded into our lifestyles (lack of sleep, deadlines, work, and relationship stress).
To balance the damaging free radical load that causes “dis”–ease, aging, cancer and the like, we should be getting more antioxidants than ever. That is done by consuming more antioxidant rich foods, herbs and even supplements.
Unfortunately, the case is the opposite. The average American doesn’t get nearly half the recommended intake each day, and can’t feel the many benefits of antioxidants.
