As I always mention the word antioxidant in my articles, a lot of people are asking me:
“What do you mean by the word antioxidant everytime you mention it, can you explain more please?”
So I prefered to answer this question by a unique article, to make it clear to all the public : )
High levels of blood cholesterol, high levels of blood sugar, high blood pressure, smoking, the surrounding pollution, and different types of radiation create in your body what is known as “an oxidative reaction”!
Under the effects of this oxidative reaction, the free radicals will be generated in your body, which in turn will generate several harmful chemical reactions that lead to severe diseases like heart disease, arthritis, different types of cancer and even more elevated blood sugar and cholesterol levels!
As everything in our body is balanced, here comes the role of antioxidants. In reality, the antioxidants are some body substances, which completely cut the chain of further oxidation of these free radicals.
An eating plan containing plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and nuts can supply all the antioxidants your body needs.
A wide variety of antioxidants have recently been booming to enhance memory and treat many diseases like cardiovascular diseases, cancer, immunity, athletic performance and many others!
The list is too long! The major antioxidants vary from Vitamin C, all kinds of berries, dark chocolate, green tea, olive oil, red wine and many more!
To know more about the whole list and its benefits, you need to read this!
