Fruits are rich sources of nutrients, especially antioxidants. At the top of the list would be berries: blueberries blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and cherries.
The intense deep colors of these fruits lets you know that they contain intense amount of protective antioxidants.
Antioxidants help protect your cells from free radical damage and inflammation. As we age free radical damage accumulates the same way iron turns to rust. Antioxidants help slow some of this damage.
When we think of antioxidants, we think of vitamins A, C, E and minerals like zinc, copper, manganese and selenium that support antioxidant enzymes. But, even more important are the powerful natural antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables.
That’s why we recommend you start your day with a colorful bowl of anti-aging antioxidants. Add a few dried plums and you will get a fiber boost for healthy regularity too.
