Benefits of Antioxidant Foods

Dietary Fiber Benefits

Almost all natural foods contain dietary fiber which can assist in the digestive process while ridding the body of potentially harmful toxins which can attack healthy cells.

One serving of raw broccoli contains about 4 grams of dietary fiber. One cup of blackberries contains almost double the amount of dietary fiber - at about 8 grams.

Body Feels, Looks Healthier

When we ply the body with sugary or oily foods - such as fried eggplant versus baked eggplant, we not only get all those oily calories, we also may not feel as healthy.

Healthy Body Weight Easier to Accomplish With Antioxidant Foods

Keeping excess weight off the body is also a benefit of consuming foods rich in antioxidants - as all tend to be very nominal in caloric values. Being at our healthy weight is often enough to make us feel good. And we'll certainly look our best at a healthy weight compared to an overweight state.

Ageing & Antioxidant Foods

Can foods rich in antioxidants slow the aging process? We do know that they can work to protect cells from damage by oxygen radicals.

Proof is still out on the aging process but early studies suggest that Antioxidant Powerhouses may help slow the aging process in the brain, as well as in the body.

Studies have also shown that consuming a high amount of foods high in Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity [ORAC] increases the antioxidant power of the blood as much as 25% and as little as 13% - which is still massively impressive.
