The Health Benefits of Antioxidants

Neil Young sang that "rust never sleeps". He had no idea how right he was. The very thing we breathe, oxygen, not only rusts cars but it actually "rusts" you too. See, your blood is full of iron. And guess what? The Iron in your blood - just like the iron in your car - is broken down by oxygen. It shows up as rust on your car. This deterioration shows up in your blood as "free radicals".

No, free radicals aren't those aging 60s rock bands that are still touring. The pesky little devils roam around your blood stream, getting into your tissues, causing damage to cell walls, certain cell structures, and genetic material within the cells. Free Radicals seem to accelerate the aging process. In the worst case scenario and over a long time period, such damage can become irreversible and lead to disease (like cancer).

Good thing there is something out there that can help remove free radicals from your body. These free radical-fighting compounds are called antioxidants. Antioxidants play the housekeeper's role, "mopping up" free radicals before they get a chance to do harm in your body. Antioxidants protect key cell components from damage by neutralizing the free radicals. Antioxidants that occur naturally in the body or are consumed through the diet may block most of the damage.

But, does your body produce enough antioxidants naturally? The jury is still out but anecdotal evidence suggest no. Let's face it, people are still aging and cancer and heart disease still are the top two killer diseases today.

Antioxidants exist as vitamins, minerals and naturally in foods. Studies indicate that naturally occurring antioxidants are the best. They also suggest that you eat more fruits and vegetables. A few of the better known natural antioxidants include carotenoids--the substance that gives fruits and vegetables their deep rich colors. Apricots, broccoli, pumpkin, cantaloupes, spinach and sweet potatoes, are some good choices in addition to lycopene in tomatoes.

There is a downside to this - you have to eat a lot more fruits and vegetables. We're not talking about an extra serving, but up to 2 or more lbs of fruit or vegetables PER DAY.

If you don't have the time to prepare or appetite to eat all this extra food, there is an answer.
