Spring Wellness: Try these rich antioxidant and anti-inflammatory foods and simple food combinations for an easy daily boost of antioxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenols, to reduce the effects of free-radical damage, stress, and systemic inflammation naturally. 

What are antioxidants?

We all know that inflammation is the leading cause of an assortment of illness - stress caused by physical, emotional or mental trauma that can be long-term or just a bad day, but leaves us feeling washed-out. Antioxidants aid the body in reducing oxidation - one of the drivers of inflammation, and aid SOD (superoxide dismutase) to reduce systemic inflammation and disease associated with it. Try these simple food combinations to give your body a boost of natural antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols. 

  • Turmeric + black pepper + Chilli (folate, iron, Vit A, K and E + Thiamin) 
  • Papaya + lemon + raw oats + cinnamon (Stabilises blood sugar, aids digestion + alkalising)

  • Goji Berries + wild berries (Highest natural source of anti-oxidants available in food form)
