The Top Antioxidant Foods

Feb 17, 2008
Nutrition and antioxidants have long been the subject of scientific studies and through this research it has been found that the combination of fruits and vegetables have certain effects on the activity of antioxidants in the body. The coupling of fruits and vegetables and the effect they have leads to a greater reduction of risk for chronic disease and two that have been proven to be reduced by this are cancer and heart disease.

To this end the American Heart Association has publicized that a diet of five or more servings a day of fruits and vegetables are what a body needs to stay healthy. The American Cancer Society also agrees with the five a day rule of fruit and vegetables in their publications.

These two organizations believe that the research has proven the effects of properties in some fruits and vegetables that have antioxidants that they have run complete campaigns to promote their eating five a day of these foods for good health. This is their way of educating the common person who may not have an avid interest in reading about nutrition.

While health is important and the five fruits and vegetables are important according to research there is also the added benefits that these organizations do not publicize such as clear skin, healthy hair and finger nails as well as slowing the effects of the aging process.

Antioxidants can be found in many foods and fruits, it can also be taken in supplements and it can be found in tea. Both black tea and green tea has antioxidants that can be beneficial to the body by drinking a cup of tea at anytime of the day.

When it comes to tea many people believe that green tea is better for health than black tea which is made from Orange Pekoe and Black Pekoe and touts it amount of antioxidants at 175 mg per serving.

Green tea comes from the plant Camellia Sinensis and is processed differently than black tea; the leaves are dried; however they are not fermented. This is what gives green tea its lighter color and flavor and it also leaves more of the natural antioxidants that is found in tea leaves.

By drinking tea there is approximately eight to ten times the power of eating fruits and vegetables and this amount of antioxidants attacks the free radicals in the body, along with detoxifying toxic chemicals in the body.

There have been many studies done on tea and countries that are known for substantial tea consumption such as Japan and China. It has been found in these countries that there is less heart disease, cancer and other diseases.

Himilayan Goji Juice is also very high in free radical busting antioxidants. Due to proprietary technology for extracting the juice without destroying the goji berries' very powerful nutrients, goji juice is more potent than ever these days.....Himilayan goji, also referred to as wolf berries, have been an integral part of the nutritional basis for some of the longest living people on Earth.
