Good Antioxidants and Juicing

 

 

How juicing could provide the necessary antioxidants to fight free radicals

Can you say antioxidants? During a crisis, our body will respond by releasing the turbo-charging stress hormones that flood your cardiovascular system to prepare you to deal with the emergency. But however, the same stress hormones flooding the system can also cause damage to our body.

Antioxidants, substances found in certain fruits and vegetables, act as scavengers of free radical (by-products created when cells use oxygen), and can both prevent and repair those free radical damage. Your skin will respond to antioxidant-rich nutrients that you eat, drink, ingest, and apply upon it. Squeeze or use a juicer to extract the juice from organic vegetables and fruits such as oranges, limes, strawberries, carrots, apricots, peaches, cantaloupes, and green leafy vegetables. Pomegranate, purple grapes, and cranberries are high in phytochemicals and are good antioxidant agents as well.
