As we breathe our body uses oxygen to produce energy. In that cellular oxidation reaction we produce highly charged molecules called "free radicals" which scavenge on other molecules in our body, causing inflammation and oxidative damage to proteins, membranes and our genetic DNA.
This ongoing oxidative stress alters the natural reproduction ability of our cells and is purported to cause serious conditions like cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, and is the main reason for why we see aging in our body. Baby boomers are getting on so "anti-aging" is of enormous interest to the medical community. If your goal is to not only prolong your life but to make sure that the quality of your older years is productive and vital the evidence exists to support that eating antioxidants is the secret.
Normally internal and dietary antioxidants do an excellent job of neutralizing these damaging free radicals however because of the massive exposure to external environmental toxins like air and water pollution, UV exposure, pesticides in food, chemicals in personal care items and cigarette smoke we are no longer able to sufficiently remove them and must therefore eat additional antioxidants to prevent this unfortunate degeneration.
The scientific evidence demonstrates that people who eat an abundance of fruits and vegetables which contain antioxidants are less likely to suffer from macular degeneration, diabetes, stroke, cancer and heart disease and those high levels of antioxidants also improve immune function preventing viral and bacterial infection. A recent study conducted by researchers from London found that only 5 handfuls of fruits and vegetables per day will reduce the risk of stroke by 25 percent!
There is nothing as beneficial as eating loads of fresh fruits and vegetables. Not only are they loaded with immune building Vitamins and minerals they contain many different age preventing antioxidants which prevent UV damage in our eyes and skin, support organ function, protect our bones and cells to keep us looking younger and feeling more vital as we age.
In our busy lives we don't always have time to buy, juice or cook fresh vegetables and when we do they often rot and waste in the fridge. That is why I developed lighterliving ™ VegeLight.
