Antioxidant Rich Recipes
Antioxidants are the substances that help in removing the potentially harmful substances called “free radicals” from our body. They prevent or stop cell damage in your body. They help in enhancing your body’s immunity.
Antioxidants are capable of promoting good health and prevent diseases too. They may help in lowering the risk for infections, heart diseases and certain forms of cancer. They can help in overcoming problems like mood disorders, eye problems, immune system problems etc.
Antioxidants have many benefits like flushing out harmful toxins from your system, boost metabolism, aids in weight loss, cleans the liver and improves kidney function, improves skin complexion and prevents wrinkles, gives you healthy nails and hair, reduces fatigue, improves your mood and so on.
Antioxidants are present in various fruits and vegetables like:
