Have you seen Sylvester Stallone? they reverse aging. How do they do it? Well continue reading and you'll find out.
Everybody gets older. It's a fact of life. We don't need to look like we're getting older though. I'm not talking about buying the most expensive cream from shoppers to reduce aging. Listen to Dr. Oz, everything that happens to our body happens from the inside out, shouldn't we take care of it the same way.
We need oxygen to survive. However, oxygen tends to hinder us as well. When unstable oxygen cells enter our bodies a process called oxidation occurs. Oxidation is the interaction of oxygen and all the different substances it may contact. The result is free radicals. If left alone free radicals wreak havoc overtime resulting in aging.
The unstable oxygen cell steals electrons from another molecule. It in turn becomes unstable. Thats when things start to degrade. Think of your body as an apple. When you peel the skin of an apple and leave it exposed to air, it turns brown and dries up. This is happening inside your body.
This is where antioxidants come into play. They travel throughout the body collecting the free radicals and dispose of them. This prevents and reduces the damage caused by oxidative stress.
Antioxidants can be obtained through a well rounded diet and several supplements. Don't worry we'll touch on the specifics in the next blog.
