The body’s aging process can be compared to rusting, which in this case happens from the inside out. Rusting is a result of cumulative free radical damage. Free radicals are compounds that are unstable and can damage the body’s cells if left unchecked. Free radicals come from our normal metabolism and our environment – for example exposure to sun, x-rays, cigarette smoke, saturated fats, alcohol, ozone, automobile exhaust, heavy metals and many other sources.
If we don’t do something about neutralizing free radicals the aging process can be accelerated as these compounds do damage to the bodies cells. Conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and many of the health issues of aging are all linked back to free radical damage. In order to help neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals we need to take antioxidants. Antioxidant combination formulas are a great source of antioxidants as well as greens foods and super fruits such as acai and pomegranate. We recommend using a whole food based multi like ANS Vita Greens as well.
