Free radicals are reactive substances produced by oxidation that cause oxidative damage to the cells. Research suggests that free radicals are involved in the formation of several degenerative diseases associated with aging, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, immune dysfunction, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Aging and increased amounts of oxidative stress cause the body’s own defense system to become less effective against free radical damage. Antioxidants have the capability of stabilizing free radicals before they can react and cause harm to cells.

Acai Berry (Euterpe oleraceae) is the fruit of a palm tree native to South America. When ripe, the berries are dark purple and about the size of a blueberry. Historically, Brazilians have used acai berries to treat digestive disorders and skin conditions. The pulp and skin of the acai are rich in anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and other fatty acids. Studies have shown that acai has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and apoptotic (programmed cell death) effects a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, showed extracts of acai berries triggered apoptosis in up to 86 percent of leukemia cells tested.
Mangosteen (Garcinia magostana) is a plant native to Southeast Asia. Studies reveal that xanthones from the fruit hulls of mangosteen have antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. In one study mangosteen’s xanthones significantly inhibited the growth of leukemia cells. One xanthone in particular, alpha-mangostin, showed complete inhibition of leukemia cells through the induction of apoptosis (programmed cell death). Other studies indicate xanthones from mangosteen inhibit the activities of COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes, prevent oxidative damage of LDL cholesterol, have cytotoxic effects on liver cancer cells, and are antiproliferative, antioxidative, and apoptotic against breast cancer cells.
Goji Berry (Lycium barbarum) polysaccharides exhibit anti-tumorigenic, immune enhancing, and liver-protecting properties. Studies suggest that Goji polysaccharides have positive effects when used with conventional cancer treatments. A 1994 study done in China on patients with a variety of cancers revealed that patients who were given Goji Berry polysaccharides along with their conventional cancer treatment had a 40.9 percent response rate to the treatment, while patients who received conventional treatment without Goji Berry supplement had only a 16.1 percent response rate. Additionally, the Goji Berry supplemented patients experienced longer remissions and had a significant increase in natural killer cell activity. Goji berries contain high levels of Zeaxanthin, a carotenoid necessary for healthy vision that is present in high amounts in the macula of the human eye. The Zeaxanthin in Goji berries is naturally esterified zeaxanthin which has been proven to cause a higher increase in plasma levels than the non-esterified form contained in many supplements. When Goji berry was studied against two other Chinese herbs on various measures of antioxidant activity, it showed the most potent free-radical scavenging effects. The researchers concluded that out of the three herbs tested, Goji was the best antioxidant to promote healthy aging.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) contains thousands of phytochemicals including anthocyanins, ellagic acid derivatives, catechins and procyanidins, flavonols, fatty acids, and sterols. Human studies show that pomegranate polyphenols and their metabolites are readily absorbed into tissues where they offer protection against elements of various diseases. Pomegranate increases nitric oxide production in the endothelial cells of the vascular system protecting against cardiovascular disease. Studies show consumption of the juice benefits patients with carotid artery stenosis, those with hypertension, and those with coronary heart disease. Pomegranate has been heavily studied in the treatment of prostate cancer. In one study when men with aggressive prostate cancer were given pomegranate juice daily after treatment by surgery or radiation, there were a four-fold prolonged delay in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) doubling time, and the rate of PSA rise was reduced by 50% over the course of just one year. Numerous other studies demonstrate pomegranate to inhibit inflammation, slow cartilage loss in arthritis, improve sperm health, and increase the overall antioxidant capacity of the blood.
