Antioxidants for energy, immunity and overall health!

>> Sunday, December 13, 2009

You may have heard that antioxidants are very important to your health. This is very true and the best source is lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. In general, the brighter the color of the fruit or vegetable, the more useful vitamins you will get from eating it. Berries are most naturally high in antioxidants. Blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, blueberry, and wolfberry are the great sources of antioxidants and they are yummy!

Antioxidants have proven an effective weapon in neutralizing the effects of free radicals. Uninterrupted, free radicals can wreak havoc with DNA, enzymes, and cells. High levels of free radicals have been linked to heart disease, cancer, arthritis, asthma and other inflammatory conditions.

I try to eat as much fruit as possible but I also supplement my intake with NingXia Red on occasion. NingXia Red is an the highest antioxidant drink on the market. I take it whenever I feel low on energy, when those around me are sick and I need an immune system boost, and when I know my diet could be better! My daughter loves the single serve packs and she calls them "suckers" because she likes to suck the juice right out of the packet!
