Antioxidants have the specialized job of protecting your body from oxidative stress starting at the cellular level. Antioxidants restrict the harmful chemical reactions that occur when molecules lose electrons, a process called oxidation. While oxidation happens naturally when food is converted into energy, the loss of electrons creates free radicals that can damage and kill healthy cells. The cumulative cellular damage is a contributor to the aging process and disease formation.
But you can reduce oxidative damage by fortifying the diet with antioxidant foods. Regular consumption of deep colored fruits and vegetables is a stellar way to improve antioxidant levels, but there is also a wide verity of antioxidant supplements to consider as well.
There is no predetermined daily intake of antioxidants, as your needs can change based on age, gender, immune health, and stress levels.
Vitamins with antioxidant properties include beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Minerals with antioxidant capabilities include selenium and zinc. Whole herbs and botanical extracts can also contain a wide array of phytochemicals that have antioxidant roles in the body as well.
Our antioxidant supplements come in the purest form possible – without any manufacturing aids, such as magnesium stearate, to get in the way of absorbing your antioxidant vitamins, minerals, and herbs.
