Greens & Antioxidants

Greens

The human body is a complex network of millions and millions of cells.  In every cell, thousands of chemical reactions are continually taking place and these reactions depend upon a diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. When properly supplied, these cells produce loads of energy and give the body an abundance of vitality, endurance, and strength.  However, being that the modern diet is high in fat, cholesterol, and sugar, most of us are actually depleting the body of these essential nutrients on a daily basis!

Superfoods like those found in ‘greens drinks’ help to support the body’s cells for optimum energy, superior well-being, and peak performance.

Antioxidants

An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons or hydrogen from a substance to an oxidizing agent. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions.

Naturally occurring antioxidants can be found in raw fresh foods – especially those deemed to be “superfoods”.

Superfoods

Experts say dozens of easy-to-find ‘superfoods’ can help ward off heart disease, cancer, cholesterol, and more.  Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients – nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves (vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, trace minerals, and more!).
