FOOD RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS – LISTED ACCORDING TO ITS COLOR!

Human body produces harmful molecules called free radicals. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction  and react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a natural defence system called antioxidants.

Antioxidants protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants safely interact with free radicals and help terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. Antioxidants play a major role in the management and prevention of medical conditions like heart disease, neurological diseases, cancer, low immunity etc. The simplest and most effective way to expose yourself to more antioxidants is through a healthy diet.  Fresh fruits, vegetables, Green tea, nuts, are good sources for supply of anti- oxidants to the body
