Fight Free Radical Damage with Antioxidants

How are we exposed to free radicals?

  • Through pollutants in the air

  • When certain medicines are being broken down by the body

  • Through the by-products of the normal processes that take place in your body (such as the release of digestive enzymes to break down food and the burning of sugars for energy in the muscles)

What are Antioxidants?

 

Antioxidants protect the body and prevent aging from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. Many experts believe this damage is a factor in the development of blood vessel disease (atherosclerosis), cancer, and other conditions. Antioxidants include some vitamins such as vitamins C and E, some minerals such as selenium and Glutathione, flavonoids, resveratrol and carotenoids which also have anti-inflammatory activity.

 

Glutathione – The Master Antioxidant

 

Glutathione is a peptide and antioxidant naturally produced in the body. It has been widely heralded for its importance to good health and long life. But, levels may drop as a result to oxidative stress due to disease, drugs, aging, pollution, injury, and radiation and may be severely depleted in patients with AIDS and cancer. Glutathione needs to be absorbed into the blood stream in order to be effective. Supplements can be ineffective because they are digested before they can get into the blood stream. It is considered as one of the most important nutrients because it allows our bodies to reuse other antioxidants like C and E, to continue to fight free radicals. Glutathione also helps synthesize and repair DNA.

 

Recommended Antioxidant Tips

  • A glutathione vitamin injection ($35) is a great way to get it directly into the blood stream. If you are looking for a glutathione supplement, enjoy a relaxing experience at Illuminate- Face and Body Bar. Intravenous glutathione keeps your kidneys healthy, helps transport amino acids and plays a vital role in purging your body of toxic compounds such as heavy metals.

  • Asparagus is the leading food source of Glutathione. You can also eat foods that contain precursors like sulfur-containing amino acids that the body converts into glutathione such as broccoli, avocado and spinach, garlic and onions.

  • Add bright colored vegetables such as yellow and orange peppers, lemons, tomatoes, beets, and cabbages as these contain high levels of the antioxidant vitamin C.

  • Eat a wide variety of fruits such as raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, oranges, pink grapefruit, red grapes, and etc. These fruits are rich in resveratrol, flavonoids and carotenoids; these also contain both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

  • Taking a high quality resveratrol supplement by ReserveAge, eating dark red and purple fruits or drinking 1-2 glasses of Red Wine may prove to slow the progress of age-related diseases, including diabetes, cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s in humans because of their antioxidant resveratrol.

Increasing your antioxidant intake will help prevent aging as well as preserve and protect your body from the damage caused by free radicals to maintain a vibrant youthful body!
