Antioxidants are your body's natural mechanism to help neutralize free radicals  those byproducts caused by burning the fuel your body needs can damage cells and tissues throughout your body.

Even if you're only an occasional visitor here, this probably does not come as surprising news.

But this is one topic that I'm passionate about emphasizing repeatedly  simply because I feel it's so important for your overall well-being to consume as many different types of antioxidants as possible.

And why is that?

Scientific research has suggested how antioxidants can be cornerstones in supporting your overall health...

 -From promoting a healthy heart

 -To supporting your immune system

 -To enhancing your memory

-Antioxidants may also play a role in helping to reduce some of the symptoms of normal aging.

Although unprocessed whole foods are rich in a wide variety of antioxidants, many are unable to eat this way and often choose poor-quality diets which are insufficient in the full range of antioxidants and free radical scavengers your body needs.

That's why I recommend you make a conscious effort to increase your antioxidant intake by eating as much unprocessed, wholesome and organic foods as possible.
