Who wants to look ten years younger than their actual age? Let’s discuss here below…
Metal gets rusty. Cut apple turns brown. Swelling wound result in wrinkled skin scars and other blemishes. That’s how free radical came into play.
We age every second of every day. Scientist believes that free radicals contribute to human aging process. Free radicals have a negative impact on how we look and feel. These are highly reactive molecules that can damage molecules inside our body and this leads to cell damage. It is now well known that free radicals play a major role in many chronic diseases.
As we expose ourselves to radiation, stressful environments, pollution and poor food choices, silently our body is reacting. We can’t stop our bodies producing free radicals but we can definitely do something to protect our body against this oxidative process.
We don’t need to avoid the world and hide from this damage causing process. Mother Nature provides lots of ways to prevent this type of harm our health. To fight oxidative stress we need anti-oxidants! And yes, you are right – anti-oxidants keep your body functioning well and protect it against harmful free radicals. Add vitamins to your diet to help your cells regenerate and rejuvenate. Feed yourself plenty of fruits, vegetables and minerals and these are easy to find and freely available when you go to the market.
The majority of anti-oxidants and vitamins are found in colorful fruits and vegetables – especially those with purple, blue, red, orange, and yellow hues.
Avoid overcooking to get the biggest benefit from your recipe. Lightly steamed or raw food is the best source of anti-oxidants.
Add beta-carotene and other carotenoids as a precursor to vitamin A for healthy skin and mucus membranes, immune system and good eye health and vision. Such foods as as Apricots, asparagus, beets, broccoli, cantaloupe, carrots, corn, green peppers, kale, mangoes, turnip and collard greens, nectarines, peaches, pink grapefruit, pumpkin, squash, spinach, sweet potato, tangerines, tomatoes, and watermelon are also perfect additions to any diet.
Vitamin C for immune support such as Berries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cantaloupe, cauliflower, grapefruit, honeydew, kale, kiwi, mangoes, nectarines, orange, papaya, red, green or yellow peppers, snow peas, sweet potato, strawberries, and tomatoes should also be included for optimum health.
Vitamin E for skin health, such as Broccoli, carrots, chard, mustard and turnip greens, mangoes, nuts, papaya, pumpkin, red peppers, spinach, and sunflower seeds should not be omitted if you want to top up your vitamin intake.
Other super foods that are rich in antioxidants include:
Ø All berries
Ø Red grapes
Ø Alfalfa sprouts
“It is just not practical for most people to consume the required servings of fruits and vegetables needed on a consistent basis, whereas taking a once-daily supplement is safe, effective, and easy to do,” Moyad says.
