The Secret to Slower Aging

Date: 2nd December 2011 | Created by: Troo Healthcare |
Have you continually seen the term ‘anti-oxidant’ bandied around without really understanding what it means and how it could affect you? If so don’t worry – you’re far from alone.

‘Anti-oxidant’ is a buzz word in the world of health & nutrition and is usually paired with another buzz word/term – ‘free radicals’. Unfortunately there is not a great deal of understanding around either term, despite the fact they both have a continuous affect on your well-being.

So what are anti-oxidants?

Anti-oxidants prevent, as their name suggests, the oxidation of the molecules in your body. This is a good and very necessary thing!

To understand the effect of oxidation on your body think of the effect water has on a metal such as iron. After a while rust will form and the iron will weaken – this is oxidation damage.

The same thing happens inside your body. Oxidation leads to the formation of free radicals which destroy the molecules in your body, enhancing aging. Isn’t it ironic that one of the most essential elements your body needs to survive – oxygen – also leaves you vulnerable to accelerated aging and illness.

Anti-oxidants to the rescue...

...think of anti-oxidants as your very own personal bodyguard. They work by bonding with free radicals and clearing them out of your body, thereby off-setting the effects of oxidation.

Fortunately anti-oxidants are abundant in loads of foods, many of which you probably already eat. Berries, beans, fruits and vegetables such as artichoke and spinach have good anti-oxidant content. If you’re looking for a treat then red wine and dark chocolate (with a high cocoa content) are also high in anti-oxidants.
