Antioxidants What They Are and Are They Helpful to You?







Antioxidants. What exactly are they? What can they do to help your diabetes health? Blueberries are high in antioxidants and contain a lot of fiber as well. Other benefits I have found from eating blueberries are the fact that they do have a certain type of acid that seems to stop a lot of urinary tract infections. This is good food for thought, (no pun intended), if you have recurrent urinary tract problems.

Pomegranate is a fruit that is red in color, and large in size. This fruit yields a lot of seeds that are very small and have a lot of juice. When you eat this fruit, the seeds are what is consumed, not the skins. Pomegranate contains a very large number of antioxidants. They have healthy benefits for you such as helping arterial plaque buildup. I've read and learned that in studies done on some people, this fruit lowered the bad cholesterol in people.

If you are someone with heart disease, eating pomegranate may benefit you a lot. Try drinking about a cup a day of juice and see what happens.

Oxidative damage comes from free radicals, that happen with bodily processes. This includes our breathing, air pollution, radiation and the sun. Any reactive oxygen species can promote diseases and speed up your aging process as well.

DNA that has any free radical damages can stimulate cancer cells and raise the risk of many cancers as a result. Damages to the fatty tissue can promote nervous system problems, and also damage eyes causing cataracts to form. Arthritis, Parkinson disease, kidney disease, bowel problems, and even diabetes can stem from oxidative damage.

Your body can normally prevent damages caused by free radicals as there is a variety of processes that serve as a defense against problems. There is protection both inside and outside the body that will break down these free radicals, helping your body protect itself against the problems I have mentioned.

Furthermore, you can protect yourself by consuming foods rich in this great natural vitamin promoting better health.
