Eating antioxidant foods is a great way to help improve the condition of your skin and boost your immune system. What are antioxidants? They’re molecules capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules. They protect cells from unstable molecules causing free radical damage. Antioxidants are the body’s best defense to fight free radicals.
Free radicals are everywhere around us, in: alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs, pollutants, radioactive material, exhaust fumes, industrial fumes, obesity, stress, harmful chemicals, food additives and oxygen. Our bodies are attacked on a daily basis.
FREE RADICALS AND SKIN
How do free radicals affect the skin? They speed up the skin’s aging process by breaking down collagen levels and reducing oxygen levels in cells. If they’re not enough antioxidants in the body, free radicals can overcome showing poor skin conditions including: wrinkled skin, pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions, sagging skin, discolorations, age spots and other pre-mature, aged, skin conditions.
Boost immune system, assist in skin repair, strengthen blood vessels, reverse skin discoloration, reduce wrinkles and protect against sun damage.
