What are the benefits of foods that contain antioxidants and what should I be eating?

Jun 15 2021

Antioxidants are natural compounds found in foods that help in effectively neutralizing harmful free radicals in your body.

The average oxygen metabolism in the body gives rise to lots of free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally in our bodies but attack fats, protein and DNA in our cells, which can cause different types of diseases. Thevar is also known to accelerate the ageing process.

The best antioxidant sources are vegetable in origin. Berries (blueberries, raspberries and gooseberries), broccoli, cabbage, spinach and aubergine are excellent choices of vegetables.

Vegetables with vibrant colours offer more beneficial elements, as research indicates.

Naturally ripened, wild and seasonal fruits should be part of your diet.

Legumes have also been found to contain antioxidants in considerable amounts.

So plan your meals with lots of colourful vegetables and beans.

The herbal teas used in various parts of the world seem to contain many antioxidants too, provided there pure and brewed properly.
