The word “antioxidants” is being thrown around a lot these days and there’s enough contradictory information out there that the topic can be confusing. If you’re worried about what antioxidants are and which you should take, don’t worry. It’s not as complicated as you might think.
Here’s a simple 3-step process to help you understand the whole antioxidant concept.
Stress, heavy exercise, overwork, poor nutrition, and environmental toxicity create something called free radicals in the body.
Free radicals damage the body, including cells, enzymes, and DNA, causing negative effects such as pain, inflammation, and chronic diseases.
Antioxidants attack free radicals and get them out of your body, relieving pain, inflammation, and chronic symptoms in the process.
Now here’s what you really need to know about antioxidants: your body can produce enough antioxidants to handle a certain level of free radicals but when it gets overloaded you will begin to experience pain, inflammation, and discomfort in your body. Those are all signs of free radical overload.
If you’ve got areas of chronic discomfort such as headaches, shoulder pain, joint pain, or nerve pain, your body may be in free radical overload. The good news is that you can address this problem by adding extra antioxidants to your daily regimen.
A wonderfully convenient way to increase the level of antioxidants you get is to add AFA blue green algae and/or this algae supplement with sprouts for an extra antioxidant punch to your daily regimen.
