What are Antioxidants

To properly understand what antioxidants are, one must understand what they are actually protecting. The human body is comprised of trillions of cells. These cells make up the tissues, organs, blood and everything required for our bodies to function properly. Through daily life and bodily functions bi-products are produced by the body. One of these by-products produced are called free radicals.

Free radicals are chemically unbalanced molecules that can be a result of normal processes occurring in the body, or can be from toxins the body comes in contact with. As the free radical is chemically unstable it will seek out the missing electron it needs to stabilize itself, usually from a healthy cell.

By taking the electron from the healthy cell, the free radical damages the cell and leaves it susceptible to disease. Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease all have links to free radicals. Antioxidants are compounds that protect the healthy cells from free radicals.

An antioxidant protects the body's healthy cells as it has the ability to give up an electron to stabilize the free radical. By stabilizing the free radical, it effectively eliminates the free radical thus reducing the oxidative stress on the cells*. Oxidative stress on the body's cells is similar to the rusting of iron in the presence of oxygen.

Reducing the Number of Free Radicals

The human body is an amazing machine and will produce most things that it needs when fed correctly. When it comes to antioxidants, the human body does naturally produce them. However as we age and are exposed to more pollutants, the human body cannot produce enough antioxidants to keep up with the free radicals produced.

While aging is a natural occurrence of life and cannot be stopped, there are choices that you can make which will help to reduce the number of free radicals in your body. Limiting your body to excessive sunlight, pesticides and smoke can help to reduce the number of free radicals. Having said that there are many things that are out of our control and the only way to eliminate the free radicals is to increase the number of antioxidants in the body.

Sources of Antioxidants

You can help your body to fight off free radicals and promote a healthy lifestyle by consuming a diet high in antioxidants. There are many foods that are high in antioxidants and they can have a direct impact on your health by eliminating free radicals and promoting healthy immune function*.

There are some vitamins and minerals that are considered to be antioxidants. They are selenium, beta carotene and vitamins C and E. There are also many fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains that are high in antioxidants. Consuming these types of foods helps to increase the levels of antioxidants in your body.

While many fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, there are also fruits that contain more potent and stronger antioxidants. These types of fruits are acai berry, lychee fruit, noni, goji berry and mangosteen. Consuming these types of fruits on a daily basis again helps to eliminate free radicals quickly and effectively. The easiest and most efficient way to ensure your body is receiving high levels of antioxidants is through the consumption of noni juice and TriFusion Max.

Types of Antioxidants

As mentioned above different fruits and vegetables have different antioxidant potencies. This comes from the various types of antioxidants. At a fundamental level there are intra-cellular antioxidants; these are antioxidants that work within the cell, and there are extra-cellular antioxidants. These antioxidants protect the cell from the outside in.

Glutathione is the body's master antioxidant and is also an intra-cellular antioxidant. It is important to keep your level of glutathione at its optimum level so that your body's level of intra-cellular antioxidants has the ability to promote healthy bodily functions*.

Then to ensure the protection of your cells from the "outside-in" approach, you will turn to your diet. Potent antioxidants called cartenoids are found in dark fruits and vegetables, these are usually red, dark green and orange in color. Flavonoids are another types of powerful antioxidant and they are found in tea, chocolate and berries. Phenols are a third type of antioxidant and they are found in fruits like citrus, pears and apples.

Before you start to have visions of eating fruits and vegetables all day, it does not have to be that way. Yes your diet plays a large role in the level of antioxidants and there are times when you do not have access to the fruits, vegetables, nuts and wholes grains required. To ensure that you are always feeding your body what it needs on a daily basis there is a simple solution.

TriFusion Max allows you to get an abundant supply of cartenoids, flavonoids and phenols in one simple, great tasting juice. Couple that with a daily dose or glutathione producing Triotein and you now have a full-proof and simple way to ensure your body is receiving an abundance of antioxidants.
