A guide to antioxidant foods

 2 months ago       52 Views

Antioxidants are compounds that may help delay or even prevent cell damage in the body. When a person consumes them in large amounts, antioxidants may help defend the body against oxidative stress from potentially harmful free radicals, which are unstable atoms.

When free radicals build up in a person's blood, they can create oxidative stress. Oxidative stress may increase the risk of developing cancer, heart disease, and many other chronic illnesses and health problems.

Many healthful foods contain antioxidants. If a person consumes some or all of these foods regularly, they may increase their antioxidant levels, potentially helping them prevent the damage that doctors associate with oxidative stress.

In this article, we list some of the most healthful foods that a person can eat to boost the antioxidants in their diet.
