‘Antioxidants for Dummies’

I was trying to explain the importance of antioxidants the other day and I came across this easy explanation:

“Antioxidants are a bit like rust protection for the body.”

As with everything that goes rusty over time, the oxidation of our cells is damaging and leads to the early onset of diseases particularly associated with old age. Antioxidants – in various things from raisins to cacoa – reduce the effects of oxidisation and repair the damage as well, which helps you to have a longer life.

So there you go, even humble raisins can be superfoods nowadays.

Don’t forget, if you need to ask us questions about antioxidants or anything else you can always contact us by Twitter, email or phone 08710871 6611.
