Antioxidants are an essential part of the body’s basic cell protection mechanism. Antioxidants can cancel out the cell-damaging effects of free radicals, and people who eat fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants have a lower risk of cancer, heart disease and some neurological diseases.
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants may help you lead a healthier life, and help with healthy aging.
Consuming a wide variety of antioxidant enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and herbs may be the best way to provide the body with the most complete protection against free radical damage.
