Living in today's very toxic world, antioxidants deserve a special place in our diet.

Antioxidants are all the rage today.  And, justifiably so. Antioxidants play a key role in cleaning up the destruction caused by free radicals. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals which cause cell damage, which ultimately can lead to diseases.
They basically clean house before free radicals get a chance to harm the body.

What foods are high in antioxidants?  They are everywhere around us just look for: colorful, fresh, natural and earthy. They are just waiting for us to pick them up.

Acai, Blueberry, cranberry, pomegranate, artichoke hearts, blackberries, prunes, pecans, spinach, kale, plums, red pinto beans etc.

The truth is, there are many common foods high in antioxidants and you should not just restrict yourself to one particular food source.  Why?  Well, have you ever heard the expression, “eat your colors?”  That refers to the fact that foods are in different color “families” containing different types of antioxidants which have different benefits.  For example, the yellow-orange color family of peaches and nectarines help our immune systems.  The purple-red color family of foods (acai, pomegranates, berries) helps reduce inflammation.  It’s important to eat foods from all color groups to reap the full benefits of antioxidants. Eat them daily and on each meal raw or cooked give your body what it craves most, all things natural. We can do much to combat the ill effects of toxins by the choices we make with regards to our diet.
