Antioxidants for the WIN!
There is considerable evidence favoring whole foods as sources of antioxidants, rather than antioxidants created synthetically in a lab.  
Nature does it it best!

Antioxidants Key for Optimal Wellness
What is Oxidative Stress?  The definition of it is an imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage.   (Whew - that's a mouthful!)

In lay terms, oxidative stress in the body is synonymous with aging (as well as dis-ease), plain and simple! Oxidative stress happens when free-radicals are created in our bodies through normal metabolism, foods & beverages in our diet, and even from the air we breathe (think atmospheric pollution).  This continuous free-radical attack on the body is a huge factor in how quickly someone ages (or not). 

Dr. Bruce Ames of the University of California at Berkeley estimates that the DNA of each of our cells is attacked by free-radicals over 10,000 times a day!  

It is imperative that we do all we can to combat the onslaught of free-radicals and the damage they cause daily!  One of the quickest and easiest ways to do this is through consumption of antioxidants that battle the oxidative stresses on the body. 

What are just some of the causes of this Oxidative Stress? 
  • Obesity
  • Diets high in sugar & processed foods
  • Exposure to radiation
  • Smoking (and vaping)
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Certain medications
  • Pollution
  • Exposure to industrial chemicals & pesticides.
What can we do to help our body eliminate and repair the damage from oxidative stress?  Besides limiting our exposure to the list above, consuming foods that are high in antioxidants is our best weapon in fighting the damage caused by oxidative stress.   If you research foods that are high in antioxidants, you will find that berries and other fruits and vegetables are at the top of the list.  Relying only on the amount of these foods you can eat each day would require a very large quantity of these foods.  

There are lots of supplements and products that are on the market that claim to have antioxidants in them, but many of these are full of synthetic ingredients that I wouldn't recommend anyone consume.  
I have discovered a whole food nutritional drink that is an amazing powerhouse full of antioxidants!  
NingXia Red
Super Food Infusion
You could fill your refrigerator with lots of organic whole fruits of blueberries, raspberries, pomegranate and the like.  Or, you could drink 2 to 4 ounces of NingXia Red daily.  While I love fresh fruit - NingXia Red is much more convenient, AND it not only has the whole fruit puree of blueberries, plum, pomegranate, etc ~ its primary ingredient is the whole fruit puree of wolfberries from the Ningxia Province of China.  This is an important factor, because, as with all things in life - not all wolfberries are the same.  These come from what has been recognized as China's "herbal medicine valley" where people consume these wolfberries daily in their diet and have much longer life spans!  The wolfberries from this area come with a Green Food Certificate, guaranteeing that no fertilizers or pesticides have been used, nor sulfur, irradiation or dyes, and no heavy metals in the Ningxia wolfberry. 

In addition, NingXia Red also has essential oils of Orange, Yuzu, Lemon & Tangerine.  These citrus oils are high in d-limonene.  Look that one up online and see all the benefits of d-limonene
