Natural Antioxidants - Fight off the Rogue Free Radicals Naturally.

"Let food be your medicine and your medicine be your food. Each one of the substances in a person's diet, acts upon the body and changes it in some unique way, and upon these changes the whole life depends, whether in health, in sickness or convalescent."  

Hippocrates 2 000 years ago.

The aim of this website and specifically this page on natural antioxidants, is to keep things simple and to keep them real.

  • So, we are going to try and give you what we hope is an easy explanation of what antioxidants are and why they are thought to deflect virtually all chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, Parkinson's disease and the aging process itself.
  • Free radicals are molecules out looking for trouble!!
  • Antioxidants can be looked upon as the "infantry" because they are the natural soldiers that help protect the body from harmful free radicals.
  • These molecules have lost an electron and in their frantic search to find another one they will destroy healthy cells in their path and so doing also create more free radicals.
  • Whilst causing damage to cells, they are impairing the immune system which leads to infections and various degenerative diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

Take a look at some of the scary stuff that these free radicals, if allowed to run rampant, can actually do!!!

  • Turns LDL cholesterol into a form that sticks to the artery walls and blocks blood flow to the brain.

  • Attacks cells "genetic material", causing mutations that can lead to cancer.

  • Destroys cells of the eyes, leading to cataracts.

  • Destroys nerve cells, leading to neurological deterioration, such as Parkinson's disease.

  • Promote inflammation, as in arthritis.

  • Damage sperm, leading to infertility and birth defects.
