By now it is probably hard to find a person who hasn’t heard at least once about great health benefits of antioxidants.
What are the best antioxidant supplements I can take to have a longer, healthier life? Do antioxidants actually slow down or even reverse aging process in my body? Exactly what are antioxidants and how do they work? These are some of the most common question people are asking while trying to choose from the multitude of options available on the heath food market today.
Today I would like to shed some light on at least few most common questions. First of all, what are antioxidants? Simply put an antioxidant is a particle (molecule) that is capable of preventing the oxidation process in other particles of your body. Since oxidation can produce free radicals which can damage cells in your body and therefore cause very dangerous diseases like cancer or coronary heart disease, the positive role of antioxidants for your health is quite obvious.
Different kinds of antioxidants are produced in your body, but they can also be supplied by certain kinds of food or dietary supplements. Some of the antioxidants are vitamin C (ascorbic acid), vitamin E, melatonin, resveratrol. These can be found naturally in certain kinds of food: fruits and vegetables, berries, cocoa and chocolate, coffee, tea, whole grains, legumes, beans, cabbage, red wine.
If you do not consume enough of these foods with your daily meals, you might need to consider finding powerful dietary supplements to “fill in the gaps” in your diet.
There are 3 best antioxidant supplements on the market that are extremely potent with many great health benefits like:
- Fighting free radicals and preventing your body cells from being damaged;
- Flushing out toxins formed in your body on a daily basis;
- Strengthening your immune system
- Increasing your body metabolism and, as a result, promoting faster fat burning;
- Fighting fatigue and increasing your energy level
- Strengthening your heart;
- Increasing your lifespan and reversing your aging process.
Acai berry, goji berry and resveratrol supplements are the best and most powerful sources of antioxidants you can find.
It is very important to remember that not all the dietary supplements have equal quality when it comes to finding the product that is right for you. Not to fall prey to many unscrupulous marketers, I strongly advise practicing common sense and doing a quick research on the company name (find it in their “About Us” section) before making your purchase. Make sure the complete list of the ingredients is provided for each product, as well as ways to cancel your order at any time (links are commonly found at the bottom of vendor’s website sales page).
Contrary to a common belief that there are no side effects to taking antioxidants an overdose can occur. Symptoms can vary from headaches to dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Stick to your daily dose and if in any doubt, consult with your personal physician.
