All the things we are terrified of, like wrinkles, saggy dry skin, stiff joints, and a reduced ability to bounce back, involve free radicals. Free radicals occur when cells oxidise due to inflammation, poor nutrition, processed foods, food chemicals, high levels of stress hormones or environmental toxins.
Phytonutrients in deep coloured fruit & veg are loaded with various antioxidants which scavenge free radicals, & reduce the impact of oxidation that leads to aging.
Resveratrol found in deep purple phytonutrients (think blueberries, dark grapes), curcumin (in turmeric), beta-carotene (orange things- like sweet potato carrots, mango, & dark leafy greens) & anthocyanins (in berries, cherries, eggplant skins, dark plums) are all powerful antioxidants which fight the clock.
Enhancing the absorption of antioxidants starts in the gut. This means getting probiotic, live foods daily. So, natural (unsweetened) yoghurt, coconut yoghurt, kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi & organic miso. They contain beneficial bacteria that when consumed regularly promote a healthy intestinal microbiome.
