Antioxidants

VeggieBite ...
Antioxidants boost the immune system and can help prevent cancer, heart disease and many other forms of major illness. They also help slow down the effects of ageing and can help fend off conditions like Alzheimer's.

There are various types of antioxidants. So it is important to balance all the following foods to reap the healthy rewards as part of your everyday diet.

the foods you'll find antioxidants in

handy notes

red wine

 

Two glasses of red wine a day provides a great source of antioxidant. More than this will have the opposite effect and leave you less, not more, able to fight off infections. Red wine contains bioflavenoids, which help towards reducing blood clots and therefore strokes. You need to drink three times the amount of blackcurrant juice to get the same effect as red wine - seven glasses of orange juice and 12 glasses of white wine.

 

 

dark chocolate

Dark chocolate provides one of the richest sources of antioxidants called catechins. Although good for you, chocolate in itself is still a fattening food.. So watch it!...

...this is no excuse for a daily chocolate binge!!

There's more good news for chocaholics...

 

 

brazil nuts

Brazils are very rich in selenium and as little as three nuts a day will fill your requirements. Cashews, walnuts and almonds are nearly as good. Research has shown that when selenium levels are too low in the body, the risk of cancer is greatly increased.

 

apple juice

Drink apple juice with your meal as this will help prevent damage from fatty foods

Apple juice can help prevent the risk of heart disease and can also help stop fat turning into cholesterol.

After 10 years study on 2000 people, scientists have now concluded that drinking fruit and vegetable juice can significantly reduce the risk of developing Alzheimers disease by up to 76%.

carrots

Betacarotene which is found in carrots is a valuable antioxidant, which again takes the strain off the immune system. Five or more servings a week will help prevent strokes by 69%

By eating a healthy proportion of different vegetables and fruit you will benefit from the widest range of antioxidants.

 

blueberries

There is evidence that antioxidant chemicals (natural) in fruit can even reverse age related memory loss. Antioxidants can increase the amount of fluid in cell membranes responsible for sending more signals through to brain tissues. Blueberries and many richly coloured fruits like strawberries - and veg like spinach will help with this natural "brain fix".

green tea

Green tea is a far healthier choice than black tea.... although all are good in reducing the risk of heart disease by boosting the antioxidant action in blood plasma. A single cup of green tea a day brings great health benefits. Studies show that green tea drinkers are far less likely to develop hypertension - up to 46% less in fact. People who drink more than four cups can cut hypertension by 65 percent!

But watch out for the tannin:

Tannin in tea can inhibit vital iron absorption, so don't drink tea for an hour or so each side of taking iron supplements. Excessive drinking of Black (Indian) tea ... (in other words - to the degree that the British drink) - can cause bladder deficiency through excessive tannin intake, which eventually shows up in old people as incontinence.

Two cups of tea maximum a day is sufficient.
