Why Are Antioxidants Important for Our Health?

How do antioxidants work?

Antioxidants are compounds that protect cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. 

Free radicals are unstable molecules in our bodies that may cause damage to our cells and contribute to a range of health problems.


What do Antioxidants help with?

Health problems caused by the free radicals that roam in our bodies may include inflammation, cancerous growth, heart diseases, quicker aging, and increased skin issues.

The job of an antioxidant is to neutralize these free radicals and prevent them from causing further damage to cells.

Where can you get antioxidants? 

Antioxidants can be found in many foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains.

Some common antioxidant-rich foods include blueberries, spinach, kale, oranges, strawberries, almonds, and beans.

The downside is that antioxidants derived from food can be hard to track and keep consistent. 

If you're short on time and need a surefire way to add some antioxidants into your system, Resveratrol is your best bet. 

How does Resveratrol work? 

Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant, is found in certain plants that helps protect our cells against oxidative stress.

Along with Resveratrol's potential healthy aging benefits, it may activate some of our body's natural defenses against cell damage caused by free radicals, and keep our cells functioning in a healthy way for longer.

While more research is needed, Resveratrol is widely recognized for its anti-inflammatory benefits that might have a positive impact on various internal cellular processes.
