Free radicals are unpaired electrons which, in your body, attack healthy cells so they can acquire the healthy cell’s electrons. The healthy cells then become free radicals as well. This multiplication of free radicals can lead to aging, cancer, heart disease, and other degenerative problems. Ingestion of antioxidants, or foods rich in antioxidants, allows them to donate their electrons to damaged cells. This slows down or can prevent degenerative changes in the body. Eating especially intensely colored fruits and vegetables is a great way to get adequate antioxidants into your body. Organic phytonutrient-rich antioxidant supplements is also a good choice. Berries are particularly rich in antioxidants with raspberries, blueberries and strawberries being some of your great choices. So is the Acai berry, and brightly colored vegetables.

So here’s to health.
There are 4 predominant factors that contribute to chronic and degenerative disease, esp. as we age: (1) Free Radical Damage; (2) Chronic Inflammation; (3) Hyperinsulemia; and, (4) Stress (excess or diminished cortisol). Optimal health is proactively working to prevent all four.
To maintain health and improve with age we focus on five areas: (1) The power of positive mental thinking and focus (there really is a power of attraction so be positive and attract the positive); (2) Regular exercise for all its’ known benefits; (3) A diet rich in whole foods (not processed) and especially dark-colored fruits and vegetables known to be rich in antioxidants; (4) Taking time to get your restorative sleep each day/night; and, (5) Supplements.
