Antioxidants ... Did You Know?
  • Physical exercise and even consuming a high-fat meal dramatically increases free radical production.

  • Vegetarians, whose life span is reportedly longer than non-vegetarians, have also been shown to have higher levels of antioxidants in the body.

  • Studies have shown that people over 100 years old have higher levels of antioxidants in their bodies than other elderly individuals, a phenomenon which may be the basis for their extended life span.

  • Clinically, HIV+ individuals whose bodies were replenished with glutathione were shown to survive longer than those HIV+ individuals whose glutathione levels remained low.

  • Fruits and vegetables high in glutathione include watermelon, grapefruit, strawberries, oranges, avocado, asparagus, potatoes, and squash.

  • In one study the lifespan of a mosquito was doubled when it was given glutathione.

  • Studies in various other diseases associated with a decreased life span, like diabetes, reveal a cellular depletion of glutathione and concurrent higher levels of free radicals.

  • When neutralizing free radicals, all antioxidants ultimately become free radicals themselves - taking a single antioxidant such as vitamin E may cause an increase in free radical production.

  • Your body produces natural antioxidants. The best way to fight free radical damage is to replenish the body with a wide spectrum of endogenous antioxidants.
