Oxidative stress fighter juice

Oxidative stress fighter juice

  • This juice is packed to the brim with antioxidant rich foods.
  • Antioxidants help fight the effects of oxidative stress.
  • According to Dr. Andrew Weil, “oxidative stress is the total burden placed on organisms by the constant production of free radicals in the normal course of metabolism plus whatever other pressures the environment brings to bear (natural and artificial radiation, toxins in air, food and water; and miscellaneous sources of oxidizing activity, such as tobacco smoke).”
  • Oxidative stress is often linked to chronic diseases including heart disease and cancer.
  • Carrots:
  • They are an excellent source of beta-carotene, which is a potent infection fighting antioxidant.
  • Celery:
  • It contains a category of antioxidants called phenolic antioxidants, which also have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Cucumbers:
  • They are an excellent source of caffeic acid and vitamin C, two antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce signs of aging.
  • Parsley:
  • It is packed with antioxidants such as luteolin and vitamin C.
  • Spinach:
  • It is one of the most nutritionally dense foods in the world.
  • Some of the nutrients in spinach may help protect DNA, reduce cancer cells, and slow tumor growth.
  •  
  • Tomatoes:
  • They are excellent foods for our heart health mostly due to lycopene, which is what gives tomatoes their red color. The lycopene helps protect the fats in our bloodstream from being damaged by oxygen. Tomatoes are also packed with vitamin E and C, which are believed to be great for overall heart health.
