A healthy diet, consuming the right nutrients and doing some form of physical exercise on a daily basis is the perfect foundation for leading a good lifestyle and being in peak physical condition.

Superfoods are your first port of call for a well-balanced diet as they have a high nutritional content and help support the body against infections. Antioxidants are teeming with numerous health benefits so you should introduce these into your diet where you can.

Why are antioxidants so important for good health?

Found in many foods, antioxidants fight the oxidation process, a chemical reaction that can cause damage to many cells in your body. Antioxidants help repair and protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals, according to medical experts, lead to serious problems like heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants help to counteract and reduce these risks.

Colourful fresh fruit and vegetables like pomegranate, tomatoes, carrots, apples, and berries are packed with antioxidants. Several Forever products provide a great base for supplementing your diet with the antioxidants it needs, like the Aloe Berry Nectar, Forever Pomesteen Power, Forever Aloe2Go, Forever Freedom2Go and A-Beta-CarE.

Eating antioxidant-rich food during the summer is a great way to protect skin from sun exposure. Why? Because our bodies are more vulnerable and susceptible to the harsh effects of free radicals when exposed to the sun.

Although, any health expert will tell you that antioxidants are important all year round. They can help to strengthen your immune system and ward off viruses like colds and flu, so make sure you consume food rich in antioxidants all year round to give you optimal health.
