Where to Get Antioxidants: 4 Foods

By Menscience

With all the unhealthy food, pollution and stress that a man is bombarded with every day, his body needs all of the help it can get to stay healthy. This is what antioxidants are for. They fight against the negative effects of toxins and help to stimulate strong immune function. They also aid in lessening the signs of aging, letting you enjoy your youthful, handsome looks longer. Read on to find out where to get antioxidants.

Berries

Berries is one of the foods high in antioxidants due to their rich pigment. Generally the darker the berry, the more potent its antioxidant content. Blueberries, blackberries and cherries are considered the best ones, but they can be significantly more expensive than strawberries, raspberries or grapes which are also very healthy. However, try to avoid buying dried berries since they’re almost always soaked in sugar to increase their sweetness. Because sugar causes oxidation in the body, it will only serve to negate the effects of the berries’ antioxidants.

Red Palm Oil

This oil is derived from palm tree fruit and is traditionally the main cooking oil used in West Africa and the Caribbean. It has a creamy deep orange color and an impressive nutritional profile. As its color suggests, it contains an abundance of alpha and beta carotenes and ample quantities of vitamin E in the form super-potent tocotrienol. It’s so nutritious that in the cultures that use it, a cup of it is given as a medicine to people who are sick.

Supplements

If all you want is an efficient, on-demand source of antioxidants without having to butcher your grocery budget, then an antioxidant supplement may be more to your liking. MenScience Advanced Antioxidants offers a full spectrum of free radical-fighting substances to promote better health. It should be noted, however, that nutritional supplements tend to work better when taken with whole foods that contain the same nutrients.

Tea and Coffee

Although they may cause a slight staining of the teeth, both of these popular beverages are potent sources of antioxidants. They possess various polyphenols and isoflavones that have been shown to fight free radicals and even reduce the risk of cancer. Some studies have even shown that the more you drink, the better the benefits are.
