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.
