Antioxidants are excellent to include on a daily basis, to help protect our cells from free radical damage, which can help to slow down the aging process, inside and out! Many antioxidants are also able to recycle other antioxidants, for example alpha lipoic acid ‘recycles’ vitamins C and E.
Antioxidants work synergistically with each other, which means they are more powerful and efficient when taken in combination, than on their own. Actually when they are taken on their own, in isolation, and at a high dose, this actually may not be beneficial at all.
So the best way to take antioxidants is as part of a broad-spectrum formula. Terra Nova’s Antioxidant Nutrient Complex is an excellent combination. I love this product due to the ‘Magnifood Complex’ added to it to enhance the supplement’s absorption and action. This adds amazing antioxidant-rich ‘foods’ such as Stabilised Rice Bran (which contains more than 100 known antioxidants!), Green Barley Grass (a source of the major antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD)), Acai Berry (one of the highest ORAC value fruits that is very nutrient dense), as well as kale, pomegranate, green tea and much more!
