  1. 1. ==== ====Powerful antioxident supplements including resveratrol at :http://myhealthneeds.info==== ====The Power of Antioxidants for Staying YoungEveryone wants to grow old gracefully. Some go under the knife to get that youthful look whileothers opt for a more natural way to maintain that healthful glow. The way to make peace withage can be found in the types of foods that we eat and the miracle ingredient they contain.This hidden miracle is called antioxidants. They have graced the pages of magazines, medicaljournals and every product from hand cream to supplement pills. But what are antioxidants andwhat can they do to keep you looking your best?Antioxidants are substances that fight the aging process that goes on in your body. They are notproduced by the body so to get the benefit of these power-packed substances you must ingestthem. A variety of foods contain antioxidants.Lets go back to the beginning. The body continually replenishes its cells. Through a processcalled cellular metabolism, the body produces energy, more cells and repairs any damage. Oneby-product of cellular metabolism is unstable molecules called free radicals.Free radicals are molecules that damage your body. They are unstable because they are missingan electron. To get another one and become stable, free radicals will steal electrons from cells.That theft damages the cells in a variety of ways.The results are visible and invisible changes to our bodies. The development of diseases likecancer, diabetes, arthritis and neurological deficiencies may begin to affect you as you age. Also,thinner skin wrinkles and brittle bones are a problem. Free radicals enter our body from outsidesources as well: cigarette smoke, radiation and the suns UV rays. The more free radicals weencounter, the greater the damage that can be done.Antioxidants have been shown to be of great help in the free radical cell problem. Antioxidantsubstances combine with free radicals and neutralize them. Once they are neutralized, they canno longer do any damage. Scientists dont have any idea of a recommended daily dose ofantioxidants to correct free radical damage and the diseases that come with age, but they do knowthat eating foods rich in antioxidants makes a huge difference in how we live.Where do you find antioxidants?Fruits and vegetables contain the principle sources of antioxidants.Examples of antioxidants include:* Vitamin C
  2. 2. * Vitamin A* Vitamin E* Lutein* Lycopene* Beta-carotene* ResveratrolCertain minerals like zinc and selenium also function in the body. They are not antioxidants butthey boost the immune system to fight against free radical damage.Antioxidants are also found in nuts, legumes, cold water fish, seafood and red meat. So, eating avaried diet of fruits, vegetables and the foods just named will increase the amount of antioxidantsin your system and help reduce the incidence of disease. Eating fruits and vegetables in theirnatural form instead of juices brings the benefit of other nutrients found in the foods. Juices alsocontain a lot of sugar that is not needed by your body.Food does more than stave off hunger. Natural substances found there can cause us to livelonger and stay free of disease as we age.Antioxident supplements are also needed to boost the lack that may be in fuits and vegatablesgrown in soil that is over farmed.
