Anti Oxidants!

These free radical fighting molecules found in colorful fruits and vegetables combat

the effects of oxidative stress, which has been linked to chronic inflammation and

many health problems. They are a small but mighty tool that can reduce the risk of

chronic disease for a longer, healthier life while offering fast-acting benefits like an

increased metabolism and better skin.


CLEAN + YOUTHFUL SKIN

Many studies have shown the positive benefits of antioxidants on skin, from

improving acne to preventing and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Antioxidant-rich

beauty foods like organic berries, acerola, carrots, green tea and artichoke help to

reduce internal inflammation, and promote the production of anti-aging nutrients,

collagen and Vitamin A (commonly known as retinol). Both collagen and retinol

keep skin tight and youthful while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.


ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Antioxidants are well-known for their ability to fight free radicals. Free radical

damage is linked to acne and aging skin, but can also contribute to chronic

inflammation: the root cause of almost all chronic disease. They work to neutralize

free radicals before they can cause any trouble, protecting the body from wear and

tear. Increasing your antioxidant intake is one way to not only reduce the risk of

chronic disease like heart disease but also see more immediate benefits like clear

skin and weight loss.


METABOLISM BOOSTER

There is a lot of hype around supplements that claim to trim your waistline and

boost your metabolism, but do the research do your due diligence to find the true

antioxidant foods with proven thermogenic benefits.

I.E.: Green Tea, Capsaicin, Ginger, etc. can all gently increase the metabolic rate.

Including more of these food can help to burn more fat while reducing inflammation

associated with belly bloat and puffiness.


DETOX DEEPER

Antioxidants are an essential piece of detoxification, supporting the liver, kidneys,

and gut in breaking down and eliminating toxins. Some superfoods like spinach and

spirulina provide a hearty dose, including glutathione and B-vitamins, both of which

are crucial for the liver to function properly. Other detox foods like raspberries have

specific components that prevent the growth of bad bacteria in the gut, encouraging

probiotics /prebiotics and good bacteria to flourish. A good inner ecosystem of

beneficial bacteria helps us to metabolize and eliminate food and toxins.

Antioxidants also reduce inflammation that can interfere with optimal liver and gut

functioning.
