Antioxidant Vitamins

Daily activities in our lives such as eating, breathing, walking require our body to consume oxygen and create oxidation, that is, produce free radicals that instead of circling around nucleus of atom careen through cells in our body and inflict damage upon cells. This damage includes degeneration of bones, organs, joints and connective tissues, weakness in immune system and visible effects of aging.

Recent studies support the need for antioxidants and other nutrients to protect against such cell damage in our body, and according to a research by scientists at Cancer Treatment Centers of America antioxidants provide nutritional benefits to cancer patients undergoing radiation treatment without interfering with the treatment itself. Today, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery are the norms of treatment for cancer patients but the side effects of these treatments are physically and emotionally draining. To overcome these side effects and to improve the quality of life post-treatment, doctors prescribe antioxidants to their patients.

In a way, antioxidants can also be considered as anti-aging. That is, antioxidants keep you younger and healthier longer. In fact you can consider antioxidants are the nutritional equivalent of man’s best friend in the nutritional sense.

Our body produces its own antioxidants, but as we get older our ability to produce antioxidants weakens and we need more them from external sources. Natural antioxidants are most abundant in fruits and vegetables, as well as in other foods including grains, nuts, and some red meats, poultry and fish. But your busy schedule may not permit you to have well-balanced meals for many a day at a time. Supplementing your diet with well balanced antioxidant vitamins can go a long way in combating toxins and free radical oxidants and in maintaining healthy body cells.

Our bodies produce several antioxidant enzymes. However, in addition to these enzymes, taking herbs, such as ginkgo, turmeric, bilberry, pine bark extracts, cascara sagrada, milk thistle, aloe vera, grape seed extract and many vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B2, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, coenzyme Q10, and cysteine (an amino acid) on a regular basis can be quite beneficial to our bodies in fighting these oxidant compounds. Zinc and antioxidant vitamins B6 and B12 can help you strengthen your immune system. Alpha lipoic antioxidant is known as the universal antioxidant because it is both water and fat soluble thereby possessing the ability to penetrate tissues of heart and tissues composed mainly of fat such as the nervous system to protect them against free radicals and the damage caused by them. Other helpful antioxidant supplements include thiamine, iron, niacin, selenium, folic acid and thiamine.
