Have you ever noticed how some people look great no matter what their age, while others look old before their time? Is how well we age, and how good we look when we age, all to do with genes and heredity? Or does it have something to do with the lifestyle choices that each individual makes?
Its secret does have to do with choices, but can’t be found in fancy face creams or plastic surgery. The answer lies deep within your body, on the cellular level, where every day, free radicals are being released into your system.
Free radicals appear to be one of the major causes of the effects of aging on the body. They not only occur naturally inside of us, destroying our body from within. They can also be triggered by certain personal habits, such as smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol. They can also be triggered by being exposed to radiation, pollutants, the harmful rays of the sun, and more.
Short of living indoors all your life, what can you do to combat the damage caused by free radicals to your body?
This damage is known as oxidation. Antioxidants are a powerful group of substances that seem almost tailor-made to fight the aging effects of free radicals. Scientists are now looking more and more closely at antioxidants to see if they might be the key to turning back the biological clock to keep us healthy and youthful well into our senior years.
Antioxidants are all around us, if you know where to look for them. In this guide to antioxidants, you will learn:
