You have probably heard of the buzzword antioxidants but what are they and what do they actually do?
Antioxidants are molecules in your body that fight free radicals.
Free Radicals are a compound found in your body and a byproduct of natural energy production. They are produced during normal immune function to fight infection and are kept in balance by antioxidants. They can become harmful if their levels get too high and are directly linked to multiple illnesses including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Your body uses antioxidants to keep the free radicals in check.
When the number of free radicals out number the antioxidants this can lead to a state called oxidative stress.
Prolonged exposure to oxidative stress stress leads to cell damage, increased likelihood of illness and premature aging…
Fine lines, wrinkles and “old face” are all results of compromised cell integrity and directly linked to oxidative stress.
Several lifestyle factors increase excessive oxidative stress and free radicals formation like diets high in processed foods, cigarette smoke, excessive drinking, air pollution, chronic dehydration and prolonged stress.
To combat oxidative stress and the overproduction of free radicals your body needs a steady supply of antioxidants.
Our bodies naturally produce some antioxidants but due to busy lives and poor nutrition the average american does not get enough antioxidants to combat the increase in oxidative stress due to their lifestyle.
Therefore the foods we eat play a crucial role in getting enough antioxidants to balance the oxidative stress in our bodies…
Green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit are some of the best sources of antioxidants but as we know most people just are eating enough of these healthy foods…
That’s why we decided to flavor EVERYDAY FIT with real fruit extract like Lemon Juice, Acai, Pomegranate, and Pineapple extract so we can infuse antioxidants into every sip.
The best part is with every sip EVERYDAY FIT has the free radical fighting power of real fruit juice without the added sugar or calories!
