Our body’s cells are often considered the “building blocks of life.” Your body produces 25 million new cells every second and contains close to 37.2 trillion cells – and that’s not even including the bacteria in your microbiome which outnumbers our own cells 10 to 1! There are 200 different types of cells that combine together to make up various areas of your body such as muscles, bones, and your body’s largest organ the skin. They are responsible for taking in nutrients, converting nutrients into energy, keeping all systems of your body properly functioning, and skin looking youthful.
Damage to our cells can happen through the production of free radicals from oxidative stress. Toxin exposure, poor diet, and emotional stress are just a few factors that increase oxidation in the body. Antioxidants are compounds that fight these free radicals that our produced with excessive oxidation. When oxidation occurs it also depletes our body’s antioxidant levels allowing these free radicals to run rampant. This can lead to visual effects of aging such as wrinkles and poor health overall.
There are many different types of antioxidants:
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
- Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A)
- Superoxide dismutase
Vegetables and fruits, berries in particular, contain some of the highest amounts of phytochemicals. Since the standard American diet contains very little fruits and vegetables, paired with the fact that most people come across these various riggers for oxidation on a daily basis, it’s safe to say that our society could use some antioxidant love.
For this reason, I curated The Antioxidant with some of the most antioxidant-rich sources to fight oxidative stress full-force. To take advantage of nature’s next-level anti-aging sources I’ve included concentrated whole-fruit extracts from blueberry, grape, pomegranate, cranberry, chokeberry, mangosteen, goji berry, bilberry, and apple to provide you with an extensive array of phytochemicals. The Antioxidant works synergistically with the entirety of The Collection to support antioxidant production for optimal cellular health.
