Supplements to reduce oxidative stress

Oxidation is a natural process but it can lead to chain reactions that damage our cells. Vitamins, minerals and enzymes known as antioxidants can help prevent these reactions. Antioxidants are recognized as an important part of a healthy diet that support the body’s systems, including connective tissue, respiratory, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health.

Antioxidants are usually beneficial. Because they reduce oxidation caused by free radicals and lower oxidative stress.

To limit oxidation damage, your body balances antioxidants and free radicals which contribute to the natural ageing process, plus to diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and even vision loss.

Your body uses antioxidants to prevent harmful free radical chain reactions. It produces some antioxidants itself and takes others from the food you eat. In essence, by balancing antioxidants with free radicals your body prevent damage to your cells.

Plant foods are your best source of antioxidants. Eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables and grains protects against the scourge of ageing and disease. And the rich and varied antioxidants they contain contribute to the health benefits.

Below are some examples of natural antioxidants:

  • β-carotene – yellow and orange – e.g. sweet potatoes, carrots and  dried apricots
  • Lycopene  – red –  e.g. tomatoes
  • anthocyanins – dark red, purple and blue – e.g. beetroot, purple berries, blueberries and red cabbage
  • Lutein – green – e.g. leafy green vegetables like spinach, cabbage and kale
