Stock Up on Superfoods
If you haven’t heard by now, we all need antioxidants like we all need a freaking break from all that nagging stress on our heads. The great thing is that the research on the benefits of antioxidants just keeps pouring in and a lot of it is shown to help reduce the stress our poor cells face each and every day through all the chemicals and pollutants in our air and food.
These chemicals wreaks havoc with our cells ability to regenerate and are known to cause major health problems such as cancer so boosting our intake of foods high in antioxidants is tremendous.
So which foods contain the most antioxidants?
This quick list contains some of my favorites. The great thing I’ve found about antioxidants is that they’re packed into some pretty satisfying foods.
A lot of berries are high in antioxidants, but goji berries are especially great. They contain a high amount of 2 antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin. You can snack on the dried kind or drop them into your tea for a natural sweetener.
These veggies are already pretty popular for their iron content and other phytonutrients, but did you know they’re high in antioxidants that fight inflammation?
These little guys are way better than flaxseed, for both their antioxidant and fiber content. I like to add a tablespoon to my morning smoothie. Grab some Nutiva Organic Chia Seeds here.
