Antioxidants are a group of compounds that are capable of preventing oxidation. Within the body, essential molecules can be changed or destroyed by free radicals. These free radicals are highly reactive, unstable molecules that can oxidize essential molecules. This process of oxidation is the biggest known contributor of cell ageing, as well as being a major trigger for disease and loss of cell health. Because antioxidants prevent this oxidation, they are commonly taken to prevent ageing and to maintain health.
Green tea is believed to slowly increase the body's metabolic rate, making it a popular beverage for those who watch their weight. Green tea also contains a powerful antioxidant and free-radical scavenger known as polyphenols.
Many fruits such as blueberries and goji berries contain essential vitamins such as vitamin C and E. These help to support our immune system and to fight off free-radicals.
