Written by Andrea Maxim, Naturopathic Doctor
Every day we are exposed to toxins and elements that cause cellular damage otherwise known as Free Radicals. If the body is not protected against these free radicals, it can cause degenerative diseases like heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, arthritis, premature aging and cancer. The main sources of free radicals include heavy metals, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, environmental toxins, etc. It’s something we cannot avoid, but we can make sure we are protecting ourselves. We do this with Antioxidants.
Antioxidants are found in abundance in foods like fresh berries and vegetables. Usually we need to supplement with antioxidants in order to ensure our immune system is protected and our body is clearing cellular debris effectively.
