|April 11, 2012||Posted by Christina under Nutrition|
Antioxidants help to fight free radicals, which cause cell deterioration (thus accelerating the aging process), in the body. According to The Organic Center, the top twelve foods highest in antioxidants are as follows:
1. Wild Blueberries
4. Black Plums
7. Farmed Blueberries
10. Red Delicious Apples
11. Sweet Cherries
12. Red Cabbage
Try to incorporate as many of these foods into your diet, and, as a general rule, try to eat a variety of naturally colorful foods. Fresh, organic produce is chock full of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. To enjoy optimal health, it should make up the majority of our diets. Spring is a wonderful time to visit the farmer’s market and local natural health food stores to enjoy the fresh, seasonal produce that abounds.
Wishing you great health!
