Discover The Most Powerful Antioxidant

When discussing health, most of us are looking for quick solutions. We want a solution that makes us look younger, healthier, and relieves us of our high blood pressure and takes care of our low energy levels and digestion problems. We want the most powerful antioxidant available.

Antioxidants tend to be everywhere!

Take a trip to the grocery store, and look down any food aisle. You are sure to see all sorts of unproven health claims plastered across every type of food & drink. Most have “Antioxidants” plastered across the label big bold letters. You can even find pet food marketing the power of antioxidant nowadays!

So exactly why is there a great deal of hype around antioxidants? It’s simple - we require antioxidants to help keep the damage brought on by free-radicals in check. Anyone who eats food and breathes air builds up oxidative stress, which is better known as free radical damage. Much like how a car emits exhaust as a byproduct of expending fuel, our cells emit free radicals (aka oxidative stress) as a byproduct of expending energy. This expended energy damages the human body on a cellular level, causing injury to DNA, enzymes, and cells. Over time, this cellular damage wears down your whole body and erodes the building blocks of your health.

So is there a Most Powerful Antioxidant? The perfect solution may surprise you - it’s your bodies own free radical fighting enzymes!

Have you ever stopped to think about disease? Why is it that adults contract horrible diseases, and kids usually are healthy? Free radical damage has been associated with over 200 diseases, some of them being serious conditions such as cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. Research has shown that the human body stops producing certain enzymes proven to fight free radical damage in this early 20's. Because of the shut down of your bodies main defense against free radicals, disease naturally takes hold.

There is a lot of hype around antioxidants nowadays. How are you supposed to know what is fact or myth? The first step is to educate yourself. Understanding how your body is supposed to work is the key to better health.
