To help deter signs of aging, protect your skin from free-radical damage by filling up on anti-oxidant rich foods and beverages. We have all heard the saying, “eating an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, while “more berries a day ward off the wrinkles”. Ingesting anti-oxidants combat the oxidant stress and damage done to cells by aging, stress, smoking and UV rays. Anti-oxidants work as a shield against free radicals which destroy healthy skin cells. However, they only stop one free-radical. As long as the body has an adequate supply of anti-oxidants, it will immediately fight back against the free radicals. Foods that are packed with anti-oxidants are strawberries, cherries, blueberries, red grapes, broccoli, tomatoes, garlic and green tea.
