Antioxidants are known to lengthen the lifespan in mice and in some cases almost doubling it.
Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. Although there are several enzyme systems within the body that disarm free radicals, the principal antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and selenium. Carrot juice mixed with ginger is a great way to start the day.
The best fruits to fight free radicals are the ones that are more sour or yellow, red and bluish-black coloured when ripe: oranges, apricots, grapefruit, tangerines, blackberries, blueberries, black grapes, black plums, strawberries, cherries, yellow-fleshed peaches, pineapple, kiwi, persimmons. The peel or skin contains larger amounts of antioxidants than the pulp. It is also advisable to eat the peel of citrus fruits (only if organic), which is rich in antioxidants.
Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoid antioxidants, including it in a well-balanced diet can tackle the cognitive decline, improve brain functions, make the thinking process faster and improve short-term and long-term memory.
Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in grapes, red wine, peanuts, chocolate and certain berries, and it has been credited with a large number of health benefits in various studies. Now, however, a research team presents findings that question whether such benefits come from the compound.
Red wine will be richer in phenols abundant in the skin and seeds, such as anthocyanin, proanthocyanidins and flavonols, whereas the phenols in white wine will essentially originate from the pulp, and these will be the phenolic acids together with lower amounts of catechins and stilbenes.
It has been found that people that drink red wine seem less likely to get colds or flu, red wine also can kill the e coli bacteria, but although it contains antioxidants you really would need to consume about 2000 bottles to benefit form the amounts of antioxidants you'd require, however in moderation a glass of wine is good, don't drink too much as it contains a lot of sugar.
