Who needs antioxidants?
Free radicals can help our body in certain aspects, such as boosting our immune system. However, when there’s too many, they oxidize our cells and speed up the aging process.
This happens both on an internal and external level, though it’s more noticeable in the latter case.
From this standpoint, antioxidants help stop and even reverse the aging process. Thus, we all should make sure to include plenty of nutrients with rejuvenating properties in our daily diet.
The people who’ll notice more long- and short-term effects are those who suffer from premature aging or chronic and degenerative illnesses.

These factors increase the amount of free radicals in our body and, as a result, raise the amount of cellular oxidation. This interferes with the body’s regeneration process and speeds up aging:

- Tobacco and alcohol
- Long hours of physical training
Natural solution for rejuvenating
These days, there are many products and treatments that promise miraculous results to turn back the clock. However, most of them are costly, temporary or lead to side effects.

To start the process, we need to give our body with the right nutrients. Nutrients will give us visible results and leave us feeling great on the inside as well.
Grapes are a fruit with a powerful antioxidant effect thanks to their resveratrol content. Resveratrol is mostly found in grapes’ seeds and skin, but it’s also in the pulp as well. The most powerful varieties are red and black grapes.
You can also find resveratrol– which is also present in foods such as blackcurrants, blackberries or peanuts– in health supplements. This polyphenol is beneficial for preventing cardiovascular diseases and certain types of cancer.
Wine also contains resveratrol. However, we recommend opting for alcohol-free options such as grapes or grape juice.
Pomegranate is a delicious and bright fruit that boasts many health benefits. Among them is its high antioxidant content (polyphenols), which are present in the skin and seeds.
Pomegranate also contains anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antiseptic properties. Its seeds allow us to make juices that are deliciously sweet with a slight pucker. Plus, they’re also a wonderful addition to salads and sides.
Despite its amazing health properties, the moringa tree isn’t yet widely known. Moringa seeds, flowers and leaves allow us to prepare a number of natural remedies.
For today’s post, we’d like to highlight the antioxidant powers in moringa leaves, which you we can eat fresh or dried.
Moringa leaves are an example of plants that contain the highest amounts of antioxidants. In addition, they’re rich in vitamins A, B and C, as well as minerals such as calcium, iron and potassium.
Thanks to these nutritional benefits, moringa can help us eliminate the toxins from our body, achieve healthier skin and nails, in addition to raising our energy levels.
