Uncategorized

By: Candice Kumai

Antioxi—whaaa? Yeah, I know they just seem to be so so popular, yet you have no clue what they are and how they can help benefit your sexy, food and nutrition loving life. My job is to research for you and translate into shareable knowledge, which is exactly what I’m about to do!

Antioxidants are nature’s way of keeping you sexy, healthy and fabulous, and all on a budget .. imagine that! They are full of nutrients, minerals, and flavonoids that help protect our bodies against free radicals, which are bad for us.

There is currently intense research that proves this.. so follow along and get less radical.

TOP 4 REASONS TO BE OBSESSED WITH ANTIOXIDANTS:

1- BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY THE RIGHT WAY! Antioxidants help boost your bodies natural immunity, helping you to fight off those nasty colds, flus and can even aid in preventing cancer and heart disease! All you have to do? Consume more antioxidant-rich foods! Not too painful right?

2- PREVENT CANCER AND SLOW THE AGING PROCESS: Look we all want to stay fabulous, hot, free of disease and have fewer wrinkles on our face & more on our brains right? So get smart. Start with prevention by consuming more antioxidants that will keep you healthy, vibrant and happy!

3- GORGEOUS EYES and a HOT BOD? Antioxidants are naturally loaded with Beta-carotene, which is great for gorgeous eyes and a hot bod. So which foods should you look for? Apricots, asparagus, beets, broccoli, cantaloupe, carrots, corn, peppers, kale, tomatoes, mangoes, peaches, pink grapefruit,turnips, collard greens, nectarines,  pumpkin, squash, spinach, sweet potato, tangerines,and watermelon. Please get with it! There is a clear reason why Mother Nature rocks at this stuff!

4- THEY ARE FREE!: As long as you are consuming foods packed with nutrients like Vitamin C: All berries, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cantaloupe, cauliflower, grapefruit, honeydew, kale, kiwi, mangoes, nectarines, orange, papaya, red, green or yellow peppers, peas, sweet potatoes, yams, strawberries, and tomatoes. Along with other sexy foods like broccoli, carrots, mangoes, nuts, papaya, pumpkin, red peppers,  Swiss chard, mustard greens, collard greens, spinach, and sunflower seeds, are filled with Vitamin E, a powerhouse of antioxidants.

Now you know, so get your antioxidants! xx ck
