The antioxidants we find in foods, supplement our internal antioxidant defense system, preventing a possible depletion and onset of disease.
The foods with higher ORAC scores have a greater antioxidant capacity, and more effectively neutralize harmful free radicals. When the balance between oxidants and antioxidants is lost, that is when the damage happens and patients progress to severe disease. By using adequate foods rich in ANTIOXIDANTS, we can increase the antioxidant status of our body.
Antioxidants are substances that work interactively inside and outside of the body’s cells, protecting cell membranes from the damaging effects of highly reactive molecules called free radicals.
What are Free radicals?
Free radicals are “charged” molecules that, if not counteracted by an antioxidant, make damage in our body, causing irreparable damage to cell membranes and cell structures (including our DNA or genetic blueprint), diseases such as cancer and heart disease, and also accelerating aging. In fact, free radicals are implicated in over 60 diseases.
NOW !!! the best option is to fortify the immune system of the body to ward off the infection.
