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
Oils that have been heated to very high temperatures
Cigarette smoke, directly inhaled or second-hand
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
Pesticides in food
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 Finchley Clinic click here where they have recommended:
