Once upon atime, there was a song that highlights the fact that we would like to be forever young but also have the old mind that tells our story so far in life.
We all know that we would age and some times at varying levels, what can you do to look fit in that old body knowing you can reverse the clock of mother nature?
Ever heard of Anti-oxidants? While you ponder about my question, our body is constantly attacked by pollution, sunrays and other damaging factors. While saving the body, we produce free radicals.
They are oxygen molecules without an electron. These free radicals’ search around the body for a free electron. They take it from a healthy cell and kill it. That is very damaging to body and accelerates aging.
Anti oxidants give an electron to these free radicals and stop them from damaging healthy cells. That is how they protect us from aging.
Anti Oxidants: how to use them.
Most of the Vitamins such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E are anti oxidants. You get them from food.
Beta-carotene that is a type of Vitamin a is an excellent anti oxidant. You get it from foods such as carrots. You can also take supplements of these Vitamins under a doctor’s advice.
