Eating Healthy, Antioxidants, Food Supplements, and more...
Healthy eating will help you get the right balance of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, in addition to helping your skin maintain that beautiful glow. It will help you feel your best and have plenty of energy. It can help you handle stress better. Healthy eating is one of the best things you can do to prevent and control many health problems.
Specifically, eating antioxidants will contribute to reinforcements at a cellular level. Antioxidants help us fight free radicals, which can be a byproduct of our metabolism or of those encountered in the environment, such as exposure to sunlight, air pollution, cigarette smoke and more. As we know, free radicals can cause tissue damage, including DNA and RNA that regulate cell reproduction. Many of the consequences of these cellular changes are the development of many different diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson's, cardiovascular diseases among others. By ingesting antioxidants, our bodies are in a better position to fight damages to our body. Many popular foods with antioxidant properties include coffee, tea, berries, pomegranate, curcumin, vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, kale and turnips, corn, beans, and tomatoes.
Although dietary supplements are a nice complement, they are not a complete substitute for food, given that many nutrients can not be reproduced in supplements. A plant-based diet can add fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals, yet allow for low levels of saturated and transfats. Last, but not least, some concerns have been raised about the safety of antioxidants consumed in some supplements.
