By: Angelo JohnsonUnderstanding the relationship between antioxidants and free radicals is very important for your body’s overall well-being. Antioxidants are simply molecules that slow down or prevent
the deterioration and damage of cells in the body. A low level of antioxidants in your body can cause oxidative stress and may damage or even kill off cells. Many diseases and illnesses, such as cancer, stroke, heart disease and even vision loss, are believed to be directly effected by the level of oxidative stress in a person's body. Therefore, antioxidants are important because they help to neutralize the free radicals in your body to prevent the oxidation of cells.
A diet high in antioxidants can not only help combat illnesses such as cancer and heart disease, it can also help prevent infection and to slow the aging process. As a person ages, his or her cells take more and more time to longer to replenish themselves. They also become damaged over time. Antioxidants can prevent the cells from dying, so you stay fresh and young looking for much longer.
In food science, the ORAC, or Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, has become the industry’s standard for assessing the antioxidant strength of foods, juices and additives. They are found in many foods such as carrots, cranberries, grapes, pomegranates, wine and much more; however,
the ORAC levels found in ordinary food may not be high enough to make any difference in some cases. For instance a cranberry has a value of 95 units per gram while our Advance Antioxidant Formula boasts 5,000 units! In this case you would have to eat over 50 cranberries in order to
receive the same amount of antioxidants as many supplements available on the market today. Other health products that are high in antioxidant properties are Pomsteen Power, Forever Lycium, Aloe Vera Gel, Forever Aloe2Go, and Meridium XN.
If you are currently in search of a comprehensive antioxidant supplement, look no further than the products we have listed above. You are just a click away from neutralizing your body's free radicals and beginning your journey to a healthier new you!
