Antioxidants Supplements May Give Us A Fighting Chance

Apr 17, 2008
Good health is often determined by a good environment, as well as great foods. A high dose of antioxidants can give us a fighting chance in spite of some 'not-so-good' environments and less than optimal foods. How is this so?

Oxidization and free radicals from 'hazardous elements' that we eat, drink and breath can break down our health. Just like automobiles need protection to keep from rusting (oxidizing) so our bodies need antioxidants to fight the affects of free radicals and oxidization in our bodies. They get into the cells of our bodies and can break it down even at the cellular level. In worse case situations, the affects can spread to untold number of cells nearby. Antioxidants can diminish, or in some cases, reverse the affects of the free radicals.

Antioxidants come in many foods such as cranberries, blueberries, ginseng and many other fruits, herbs and berries. There have been a number of drinks over the last two decades that have had a concentration of these antioxidants in them. Noni products have an ORAC score (a rating score of antioxidant content in foods) of 525 per ounce, acai scored 692 per ounce, mangosteen scored 1010 per ounce and the newest product, Jus, 8,687 per ounce. All of these drinks add additional antioxidants to our diet. Since most Americans are busy and have little time to eat like they should and/or the environment is less than perfect, these kinds of supplements can be real lifesavers.

The truth is, most of us do not have the time to eat '14 servings' of these foods that we are supposed to consume everyday. We just do not have the time or the money most of the time. We need help. These antioxidant juice supplements may be an answer for those that find themselves short of time or in an unhealthy environment. Most of these companies have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and acquired expertise in order to get us the product that will be most beneficial.

Aging, pollution and poor diet has combined with American's fast pace to require better supplements than we have had in the past. We are beginning to benefit from research, time and money spent to develop new health products. Since it is very difficult to change our environment, food quality or pace of life, this one addition to our diet may give us that extra 'shot' we need... especially the one that can give us eight times what was available before.

Without antioxidants our bodies weaken by the free radicals and we are more susceptible to various diseases. The results of excessive free radicals in our system can cause susceptibility to heart disease, various forms of cancer, chronic degenerative diseases, cell destruction as well as other negative results in our bodies. High doses of antioxidants have been known to even reverse these affects. Increased energy and reduced inflammation are often added benefits reported from those that take these kinds of supplements. With the kinds of lifestyles that Americans live, these drinks may be a welcome addition to our diets and give us a 'fighting chance' against the free radicals that we eat, drink and breathe everyday.
