Antioxidants and Heart Disease
what does this mean it means antioxidants
equal antiaging they are the best nutrients you can put in your body to protect from aging, free radicals and oxidation of the cells preventing cancer, diabetes, stroke, heart disease and many more diseases of the body.
How Do Antioxidants Work?
Basically antioxidants protect the cells the way lemon juice protects an apple or avocado from browning, that's the same way antioxidant antiaging
work in your cells to help slow the aging process and prevent old age diseases.
Antioxidants and Resveratrol
is the king of antioxidant antiaging system of polyphenols that keep us healthy.
What is resveratrol?
it's a polyphenol found mainly in the skin and seeds of grapes, when plants are under stress from the environment they produce protective compounds against the environment and when we ingest these plants we reap all the benefits of these antioxidants.
Antioxidants and Free Radicals
Without antioxidant protection free radicals can damage cell walls, genetic material within cells and other cell structures. Over time such damage may lead to disease.
Again, antioxidants are believed to assist in preventing disease by destroying free radicals before they get the chance to do harm to your body.
The French Paradox
Several decades ago, scientists zeroed in on the fact that populations with noticeably better health or significant longevity were known to consume antioxidant rich foods.
The French people are a group that consume a high fat diet but don't get heart disease and we believe it is partly due to
red wine and the antioxidant Resveratrol.
Plants are constantly being bombarded by sunlight and ultraviolet rays. Since they can’t just go inside when they’ve had enough sun, they produce strong antioxidants to protect their cells against cell damage from ultraviolet radiation and other environmental hazards like bacteria and fungus.
Several hundred of these antioxidants are known to exist, and the most potent and beneficial ones are these six:
List of Antioxidants
- Alpha carotene
- Beta carotene
What are Flavonoids
Flavonoids are antioxidant
phytochemicals that form the bright colors of vegetables, fruits, grains, leaves, and bark. Flavonoids are found in many forms, and different plants contain different concentrations of them. The
has the most amount of resveratrol and has an extra chromosome which affects the AGE Proteins and is a super grape.
Flavonoids Have Up to Fifty Times the Antioxidants Than Vitamin C and E
Some flavonoids may have up to fifty times more antioxidant activity than vitamins C and E. Impressively, flavonoids from red grapes are more than a thousand times more powerful than vitamin E in inhibiting oxidation of human LDL cholesterol. Adding these
antioxidant rich foods
to your diet will do amazing things for your health.
List of Flavonoids
- Catechins mainly found in green tea
Isoflavones are found in soybeans
and other legumes.
In the body, they are very alkaline forming and an alkaline diet is the best way to improve your health, about 80% alkaline and 20% acid is a perfect diet according to the book written by Theodore A. Baroody, Alkalize or Die.
The Isoflavones compounds may help inhibit the growth of hormone-dependent cancers and other cancers. In addition, they lower total cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease.
Soy Protein Products and Anti Aging
The consumption of soy products
has many health benefits, including protection against breast cancer, prostate cancer, menopausal symptoms, lowers cholesterol, heart disease and osteoporosis.
Many of the health benefits of soy are derived from its isoflavones.
