A key ingredient to improve the lifestyle and living a healthy life is antioxidants.
Antioxidants are molecules that inhibit oxidation; one use to store deterioration of food products. Vitamin C and E effectively repair damaging oxidizing agent such as free radical in the immune system.
Antioxidant can delay aging process and recover damage substance. Eliminate toxic agent such as mercury and arsenic urination. Antioxidant can stimulate genes and increase natural defenses. Some antioxidant can protect the DNA attack by free radical and give anti-cancer growth, force the cell to self-destruct.
Enzymatic antioxidant can end free radical and done by metal cofactors like zinc, copper, iron and manganese. Enzymatic is not a supplement but produced in the body.
Catalase will convert hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen through iron and manganese cofactors and ends in detoxification process.
Glutathione peroxidase refers to selenium with enzymes to break hydrogen peroxide and organic peroxides into alcohol mostly found in the liver.
Glutathione is an intracellular found in the cell body, is a powerful antioxidant and it can maximize the performance and the source is vitamin C and E, CoQ10, alpha lipoic, fruits and vegetables.
Superoxide dismutase with copper and zinc can disintegrate superoxide to form hydrogen peroxide and oxygen and at aerobic and extracellular.
Alpha lipoid can change the gene expression and reduce inflammation, chelation therapy to toxic, insulin sensitivity or pathway of adipogenesis.
CoQ10, help to produce energy in the cell, support the heart, immune system and nervous system, delay the sign of aging, and keep up blood pressure.
Note: Below 25 years of age the body can convert CoQ10 easily. When the body get older it become more aggressive to convert oxidized to ubiquinol and one may need to subscribe ubiquinol supplement.
Foods like grapes, vegetables, and cocoa are rich with resveratrol. This antioxidant can protect the brain and nervous system.
Resveratrol can also inhibit prostate cancer, lower blood pressure; improve heart and blood vessel, normal the anti-inflammatory and Alzheimer prevention.

A lot of antioxidant food that are consume are from vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes and peppers are all excellent choice with great benefit for the body. Vegetables that is rich in color known as phytonutrients.

Although fruits and vegetable are the best sources, the problem is the use of chemical herbicides, pesticides and different types of fertilizers. Study has shown that fruits and vegetable are organically grown in antioxidant and can boost a higher concentration than produce commercially.
Supplement that contain phytonutrient do have some advantages compare to different kind of food such as carrot can elevate the blood sugar. Phytonutrient found in supplement are the extract of pigment where nutrient concentrated meaning leaving the calories and sugar behind.
Fruits and vegetable indeed high in antioxidant although some produce through commercially but come with chemical and there are not so good. Canned fruits and vegetable come with high level of sugar and is not include in antioxidant supplement. The supplement that offers the level without chemical, sugar or calories has the highest value and is safe for consuming.

Vitamin C can protect the skin from UV (ultraviolet) rays. If the skin suffers from the radiation, vitamin C as a biological co-factor and antioxidant can reduce the symptom from UV.
Orange juice has the daily dose of vitamin C and with few glass of orange juice in the morning with breakfast can get the right amount of vitamin C.
To get more vitamin C in the diet, one can try to use supplement.
Oxygen is a primary component for life. This oxygen once inside the body becomes very reactive through certain molecules also known as oxidative stress. As an antioxidant, vitamin E will help to prevent the stress and the cell from aging or sustaining with any type of permanent damage.
Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in much food, and absorbs by the body and transfer from the liver to store by the tissue or fat. This is transfer through the bloodstream by the molecules known as low density lipoproteins. When the lipoprotein oxidized it will react to the cholesterol and the fat known as plague begin to accumulate on the artery walls, causes the blood to flow and stop.
Vitamin E will prevent the cholesterol from forming into plague and allow the blood to flow. Without the help from vitamin E the blood will stop flowing and the arteries will reinstate from the beginning. As a result this will cause heart attack, high blood pressure and other disease.
Many researcher and doctor have link vitamin E as a prevent substance for cancer but is not conclusively proven.
However there are studies show that vitamin E is effective in protecting the skin against ultraviolet (UV rays), may lead to skin cancer.
The benefit of vitamin E can protect against Alzheimer disease and inflammation of the pancreas. This vitamin E function as biological co-factor is beneficial to reduce scar and healing burn and wound.
Vitamin E offers many benefits and is found in fruit and nuts. Fruits are excellent source of E particularly oranges. If one drinking orange juice with pulp, the one will get plenty of vitamin E.
Astaxanthin is a chemical refer to carotenoid found in salmon, trout, lobster, and shrimp.
