What are Antioxidants and Why do I Need Them?

Cells are changing and reacting inside the human body at any given moment. While many of these reactions have positive side effects, there are the occasional reactions which produce free radicals.

Free radicals, when they accumulate, can cause oxidative stress which in turn can damage cells and lead to chronic and dangerous diseases (1).

The body fights back against the free radicals by producing antioxidants, small defenders that work to stabilize free radicals. 

Sometimes the body cannot keep up with the amounts of damaging free radicals. When this happens, eating foods rich with antioxidants gives the body a boost and helps maintain health and avoid diseases (2).

Here are the best liquid and the best specific foods that are high in antioxidant levels and help keep the body healthy.

The Best Antioxidant Drink

There is no easier way to add antioxidants to your diet than through the fluids you drink everyday. 

Hydrogen water made from Synergy Science™ water machines is full of antioxidants. Using a hydrogen water bottle like the Echo Go™ or a pitcher like the Echo H2® pitcher is an easy and portable way to have hydrogen water at all times and in all places. A more permanent water machine like the Echo Ultimate™ or the Echo H2® machine stays in your home but always makes fresh hydrogen water with just the turn of a dial or the simple press of a button.

7 Antioxidant Rich Foods

  1. Blueberries – Most berries contain antioxidants, but blueberries top every list as the most helpful type of berry (3). 
  2. Artichokes – Artichokes are considered the vegetable with the highest amount of antioxidants and are usually associated with cancer prevention (4).
  3. Kidney Beans – Most beans are considered as antioxidant rich foods, but kidney beans are some of the highest in antioxidant levels.
  4. Pecans – Pecans have high levels of antioxidants for their relatively small size. If you only don’t have time to prepare a meal, pecans are a quick and healthy snack that helps the body (5).
  5. Strawberries – Not only are strawberries high in antioxidant levels they are also low calorie, fat-free, and nutrient rich fruit (6).
  6. Tomatoes – Tomatoes are common and easy to find. They are well known for their lycopene content (a specialized antioxidant used to fight prostate cancer). Tomatoes also contain high levels of vitamins A and C, both necessary for healthy body function (7).
  7. Spinach – Spinach is a good source of antioxidants as well as a source of other vitamins. They are also very low in calorie content (8).

Consuming these seven foods can help the body fight free radicals and keep all of the body systems running smoothly.

Always Remember

Oxidation in the human body is constantly happening. Do not let your body fall behind and get to the point where you develop a medical issue. Drink hydrogen water in the place of a normal glass of water as often as possible. Add in the antioxidant foods listed above to further prevent oxidation and protect your body.

A simple choice of foods and water today will make years of difference in the future.
