Antioxidants are some of the most important substances that we can contribute to our bodies. They are molecules that slow down the oxidative damages that we bring forth to our bodies and protect our cells from free radical. Although we are born with free radicals, many more are added when we poison our bodies with the wrong foods. Free radicals cause DNA mutation and this is where disease kicks in. The oxidation strengthens by way of stress, cigarette smoking, and polluting the body with poisons. Antioxidants are most important because they protect our bodies from several diseases that are caused due to the lack of proper food digestion. Antioxidants are known to stop diseases like cancer, heart disease, memory loss, etc. These very important molecules could be found in green leafy vegetables and in many different fruits. Believe it or not the most important part of the fruit is the skin---it has the most antioxidants. You can also find lots of antioxidants in beverages like green tea, real grape juice and in many different wines.

For years medical professionals have been researching the health benefits of antioxidants and why they are so important to our bodies. They found that the best ways to receive the benefits of antioxidants are eating healthy and by taking organic supplements (vitamins.) According to the medical professionals at Harvard School Of Medical Health vitamin C, E,beta-carotene and zinc, which supplements are antioxidants provide protection against advanced age related macular degeneration. This evidence was found in a 6 years study called (AREDS) the Age-Related Eye Disease Study. It was also found in a study done by Dr. Burt Berkson that a antioxidant that is found in our bodies called Alpha Lipoic Acid which is an antioxidant is the cure to hepatitis C and if taken more to the body it will completely wash away the hepatitis C disease. Dr. Berkson has also found that with a low dosage of Alpha Lipoic Acid and Naltrexone for one month the reversal of diseases like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Dermatomyositis, and Autoimmune disease have taken place. There are several other benefits that antioxidants provide to our bodies and as Scientist and other Medical Professionals continue to do research they are finding more and more reasons to give further information about it's cures.

Excellent presentation of the benefits of ingesting the right foods to combat "free radicals" in the systemic blood circulatory system that provokes an inflammatory response. Leading to many diseases like asthma, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, etc.

Foods rich in anti-oxidants and supplemental health capsules are taken in our family to balance any deficiencies in our diets or multi-vitamins.

On the money health information.
