The Magic of Antioxidants

Similar to rust on a car wearing away the finish of that paint job until a reddish-brown, rusty hole opens up along the wheel well, cells of the body also disintegrate. Oxidizing exposure to elements rushing through the body, daily, stimulates, degrades, and reduces the effectiveness of the metabolism. Wind, rain, snow and road debris wear the protective coating of the automobile. Damaging chemicals wash over millions of cells in the body damaging their structure. This wearing process is oxidation.

Causes of Oxidation

  • Processed foods
  • Soft drinks
  • Sugars
  • Artificial flavorings, colorings, taste enhancers, and preservatives
  • Saturated fats
  • Stress chemicals – cortisol and adrenaline
  • Smoking
  • Sun exposure
  • Normal aging process

Rusting Oxidation

As cells age, they weaken and rust. Continually bombarded the body cannot repair all the damaged cells. Wrinkling skin, thinning hair, decreasing stamina, reducing immunity to illness, and a slowing metabolism from cellular damage create the human expiration date. Hunter-gatherer and agriculture ancestors ate diets enriched with foods that extended and enriched cellular life while maintaining a healthy metabolism.

  • Boosting Metabolism
  • Protein
  • Antioxidants rich in amino-acid building and cellular repair
  • Complex carbohydrates
  • Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids
  • Fiber

How Oxidation Works

The cells in the body work in equal pairs growing and repairing themselves as needed. When cells contact the parasitic rusting elements the body cannot repair the damaging elements immediately. Rust invades the car bumper slowly until one winter day the damage is disastrous. Attaching to skin, organ, muscle, and other tissue cells, damage build up over time and chips away at healthy cells. Without constant attention to nutrition and maintaining cellular strength damage WREAKS HAVOC.

With little control over normal aging at least healthy eating, exercise, and antioxidant use can increase the human expiration date. Individuals who eat foods rich in vitamins, minerals, and cell – strengtheners such as super foods can enhance their metabolism and boost their immunity. Super foods loaded with antioxidant power provide the body with more vitamins, minerals, and energy. Super foods are energy rich and calorie dense.

SUPER FOODS – ANTIOXIDANTS

  • Blueberries
  • Broccoli
  • Salmon
  • Spinach
  • Legumes
  • Nuts
  • Eggs

ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants offer supplement, sublingual, pill, or powder form and can rejuvenate the aging body. Additionally antioxidants provide a replacement for the foods missing from individuals daily diets. Adding antioxidants can reduce the damage from food additives and age related “wear and tear” on the body. More than just a vitamin, antioxidants can reverse cellular damage, improve aging skin, build stamina, increase immunity, and boost metabolism.
