Antioxidants

Antioxidants have been fashionable for some time to the date; However, many people do not know what exactly. Antioxidants are substances or nutrients present in our food that can prevent or delay oxidative damage in our body. When our body cells use oxygen (in almost everything we do every day), naturally produce radical free (secondary products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as hunters of radical free, and they help prevent and repair damage caused by them. Health problems such as skin diseases, fight aging, heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes and cancer are compounded by oxidative damage. That said, you can appreciate the important thing is for us to introduce these hunters of radical free our bodies every day, especially if we present a health problem such that suffers from acne.

What foods contain antioxidants? Fortunately for you and for me, the list of foods that contain antioxidants is quite extensive: vegetables, fruits, most nuts, fish and shellfish, red meat, grains, eggs, chicken and garlic are just some few examples of some great healthy foods that you your hunters provide daily. There are some foods that are particularly high and famous for his abilities to destroy radical free. These are three of my favorites: Acai berries, Acai is a fruit that grows in the Acai Palm trees in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. La mora of acai is of small size (smaller than a grape) and has a dark purple color. Although it is small, it is full of antioxidants and amino acids, is also considered one of the most nutritious fruits of the Amazon basin. Acai has 10 times the antioxidants of red grapes and twice of blueberries. That said, I am not going to tell you that this fruit is the cure for all your evils (as exaggeratedly proclaim many of internet sites who want to sell their arrears of acai supplements).
