ANTIOXIDANTS, WHAT ARE THEY?

Antioxidants are very important for the body, they help to protect the cells against damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are very active molecules that can cause cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer and other disease related to ageing. The best way to protect against free radicals is a good diet. Some foods are more effective than others. We have created a TOP 10 of the foods highest in antioxidants.
