These days, ANTIOXIDANT is both a health buzz word AND a big reason to eat superfoods. But you may be wondering "what IS an antioxidant?" Antioxidants protect the body from wear and tear, while strengthening the immune system, muscles, bones and skin. They do this by stabilizing cell-damaging “free radicals” that form as we use energy and age. Unhealthy processed and sugary foods, stress, excessive exercise, extended sun exposure and some chemicals in our environment also spur free radical production.
