Antioxidants inhibit the oxidization of other molecules. Too much science for you already? We’ll break it down for you in this simple way: Your body has certain cells known as free radicals. These free radicals cause damage to other cells and are often pointed to as the lead culprits behind many chronic diseases and cancers. Antioxidants stop the molecules in cells from oxidizing and becoming free radicals.

Sounds pretty good, right? Including antioxidants in your diet not only strengthens your immune system, but also gives your body a good tool for actively fighting off disease and other health problems like arteriosclerosis. When you load up on antioxidants, you’ll find that your body feels better and illnesses, from the common cold to arthritis, are less likely to appear in your life.

To know which foods are really rich in antioxidants, a good rule of thumb is to look for fruits and vegetables that are vibrantly colored. In fact, more likely than not, you’re already consuming a good bit of antioxidant power if you’re eating tree nuts, beans, apples, or onions. Many fruits and vegetables are a considerable source of antioxidants.

If you really want to increase the amount of antioxidants you’re getting, try eating blueberries. Studies have shown that blueberries are extraordinarily rich sources in antioxidants. All fruits can be a great source, however.

Another creative way to get the antioxidants your body needs for fighting free radicals is to take a look at what you’re using to spice your food. Many ingredients used in cooking, from cinnamon to oregano, are rich in antioxidants.

We’d like to encourage you to do some more research and have fun finding out how you can load your diet with antioxidants. Because you can’t have too many antioxidants, it’s fun to try to keep incorporating them into your meals!
