Antioxidant food touted as preventor of free radical cellular aging

ANTIOXIDANT FOOD TOUTED AS PREVENTOR OF FREE RADICAL CELLULAR AGING

Antioxidant food is our best line of defense in combating free radical cellular aging. Check out what scientific studies say about cellular aging and the best foods with the highest Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity to keep you healthy for longer.

Why do human bodies grow old and die? This is an age-old question that still mystifies us. Nonetheless, scientists know that free radical cellular aging is a major cause of the body’s gradual breakdown. Understanding the impact of free radicals on human health can revolutionize life as we know it by counteracting their negative effects.

Effects Of Free Radical Cellular Aging

According to the free radical theory of aging, free radicals are atoms that lack the required number of electrons in their outermost shells. This makes the atoms unstable and they readily react to other substances. When these are oxygen atoms, the free radicals cause us oxidative stress. In turn, oxidative stress damages our body cells leading to negative medical conditions, illnesses, and symptoms of aging such as wasted muscles and wrinkling.

Antioxidant Food To Combat Free Radical Cellular Aging

According to a groundbreaking University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign study full, antioxidant rich diets are our best counter against free radical cellular aging.

Researchers studied the neural activities of 60 people aged between 25 and 45. The study concluded that antioxidant carotenoids may counter cognitive aging. According to the study head, Ann Walk, Ph.D., older participants with high lutein levels exhibited neuro-electrical signatures similar to younger participants  with lower lutein levels. Lutein is one of the most common antioxidant carotenoids and is known to support vision.

Sources Of Antioxidant Food

Antioxidant foods are clearly your best ally in fighting free radical cellular aging. Another study by the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University set out to measure the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of various vegetables and fruits.

Some of the best lutein-rich foods include veggies such as kale and spinach that boost our cognitive abilities. Other antioxidant foods recommended include avocado, eggs, broccoli, zucchini, peas, collards, chard, and mustard greens. Prunes, raisins, plums, grapes, oranges, cherries, and most types of berries pack some of the most powerful antioxidants per serving.
