Lately, free radicals and Anti-oxidants are buzz words.
Shoot even young children are more familiar with this stuff these days.
Well, thank goodness were are learning about Anti-oxidants and super foods. Because free radicals are legion these days. We always had them as by products of metabolism and in normal aging, but it has worsened with the myriads of environmental pollutants.
Time to educate ourselves and help Anti-oxidants fight the free radicals.
This battle is at the cellular level. Basically free radicals are unstable, bad guys(atoms) who are missing an electron and decide to steal electrons from stable, healthy, good guys. If you have excessive, unchecked free radicals the results can be more than normal aging, it can be disease, inflammatory disorders, immunological problems, certainly cancers and the list goes on.
Woohoo do not fret, this is where our diet rich in Anti-oxidants can help.
You know fruits and vegies….and some are considered super foods because of their strong Anti-oxidants properties. Furthermore, good old vitamin C, Vitamin E, selenium and beta carotene are great anti-oxidants.
TAKE IT SERIOUS as free radicals can damage cell membranes and mess with DNA.
So, after reading about damages already being done by enviromental pollutants, seriously be proactive for you and your family.
I definitely don’t eat enough fruits, but I drink a shot day if a super juice which has 44 xanthones (special name for anti-oxidant). Guess what, it dropped my cholesterol, reversed my reflux, killed my arthritic pain. Oh and my sister used it to increase her hemeglobin as she couldn’t take the large doses of iron. She normalized and they cancelled her bone marrow biopsy. The juice is xango, you can buy it on eBay or amazon.
Anyhow, we might have problems, but there is often a solution and I thank God for showing us he incredible goodness in His Creation, even though we are so stupid and constantly mess things up. HE IS AWESOME.
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF and always HOPE.
