What are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants are molecules that can be found in food and help stop oxidation in our bodies. Oxidation is a chemical process that can produce molecules called “free radicals.” Free radicals form as result of normal body processes or through harmful environmental exposures such as cigarette smoke or radiation. These unstable molecules can damage our body’s cells and DNA, and may play a role in the development of cancer, heart disease and other chronic conditions. Our bodies may use antioxidants to neutralize these reactive free radicals before they can cause damage to our cells.

Research shows that fruit and vegetables, which are rich in antioxidants, reduce the risk of several chronic diseases [USDA, 2010] and prevent approximately 30% of cancer deaths [Hiatt RA et al].

Lycopene:

Is associated with reduced risk of prostate cancer.

Anthocyanins:

May protect against cardiovascular disease, diabetes, some cancers, neurological diseases and vision problems.

PREBIOTIC FIBER


Prebiotics include non-digestible food matter that support the growth of the good bacteria that is already living in your gut. As a prebiotic passes through the gut, it is not digested and becomes food for the microorganisms living in your gut.

Prebiotics help these microorganisms thrive.


PROBIOTICS


Probiotics are live microorganisms. Eating probiotics increases the amount of good bacteria in the gut.
