Oxidative Stress: How to Prevent this Leading Cause of Early Aging and Disease

Lowering your oxidative stress can help prevent premature aging, illness and disease.

There are many different processes and substances that chronically damage cells and contribute to oxidative stress including toxic chemical compounds and pollutants:

  • All kinds of pollution, including air, water, and food
  • Hydrogenated fats
  • Oils that have been heated to very high temperatures
  • Cigarette smoke, directly inhaled or second-hand
  • Dehydration
  • Too much sugar
  • Too much animal protein in the diet
  • Geophysical stress like living near power lines or waste dumps
  • Microbial imbalance, including bacterial, fungal and viral infections
  • Preservatives in food
  • Drugs (over the counter and prescription)
  • Artificial food colourings and flavourings
  • Plastics and phthalates
  • Chemical cleaning supplies
  • Chlorinated drinking water, as well as for showering & bathing
  • Alcohol
  • Pesticides in food
  • Radiation exposure
  • Psychological and emotional stress

Your body generates free radicals every day, but you don’t have to let free radical damage cause premature aging and disease!

Avoiding the substances and behaviors listed above that cause free radical production is one of the easiest ways to fight free radical damage.

Another way to protect yourself from free radical damage is by consuming natural antioxidants.

Antioxidants are the nutrients found in foods like:

  • Fermented Foods and liquids
  • Vitality Super Greens
  • Fruits and Vegetables
  • Certain Green teas
  • Organic grain-like seeds

With a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can lower your oxidative stress and protect yourself from the damaging effects of free radical damage. If you would like to take an anti-oxidant supplement I have an affiliation with the
