We have all heard about antioxidants, but do we really understand why they are so important? Antioxidants are not only important for you overall health, but they are key in preventing the aging process.

HOW DO ANTIOXIDANTS WORK?
Antioxidants protect your skin against free radicals that damage the existing collagen.  Harmful free radicals are generated in the body as well as by environmental toxins from air pollution, smoke, pesticides, UV rays, etc.

THREE CLASSES OF ANTIOXIDANTS
    Vitamins (eg. A,C,E)
    Phytonutrients- plant nutrients (eg. polyphenols, flavonoids, carotenoids) found in variety of     fruits and vegetables.
    Enzymes made by our body (eg. Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione Peroxidase)

FOODS HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Below, are some of the foods that are high in antioxidants. Also, by eating organic, you reduce your risk of exposure to pesticides, and also increase your level of antioxidant consumption.

    Blackberries, Blueberries, Acai Berry, Cranberries
    Granny Smith Apples
    Red Kidney Beans
    Artichokes, Tomatoes
