ANTIOXIDANTS

Oxygen is an important part of the air we need to survive. We can't live without it. On the down side, oxygen can also be a source of free radicals or unstable oxygen molecules associated with causing cancer, heart disease and premature aging.

Fortunately we have antioxidants that can fight these damaging free radicals.

Antioxidants have been studied for decades and have been shown to lower a person's risk for disease, stimulate the immune system, help slow the aging process, and protect brain neurons from damage.

Damaging oxidative stress accurs when oxidative effects exceed the antioxidant defenses. To maintain a high antioxidant defense system we have to choose foods rich in antioxidants. Luckily these foods are plentiful and easily obtainable.

Antioxidants are measured in ORAC - Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. Nutritionists agree a person should consume a minimum 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC units per day to have positive impact to better health.

Remember that the more foods are processed, the more their Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity diminishes. Boiling lowers the ORAC value greatly, while steaming retains more antioxidants in foods. To retain the most ORAC value choose foods that need little processing or can be eaten their raw and natural state.
