Antioxidant Supplements - Super Support - Avoiding Germs.

Super Support – Avoiding Germs

Are you a germaphobe? Do you avoid pushing buttons in the elevator and attempt to open doors with your elbows? Do you hold your breath when a colleague at work coughs or sneezes? If so, take heart, there is another way to live your life and protect yourself against germs and resulting illnesses. There is something out there so powerful and so wonderfully abundant and it is readily available to everyone. The name of such an indispensable solution? Antioxidants!

Death to the Radicals: Keeping disease at bay


Antioxidants are vitamins, nutrients and minerals that can protect against "oxidative damage" and help repair our cells. By now many of us have heard of “free radicals” and the havoc they play on our healthy cells every day. They cause damage to cells and DNA which can leave the body susceptible to disease. Researchers have long thought that there is a correlation between cellular damage and diseases such as cancer and heart disease, not to mention a compromising of the immune system as a result of damaged cells, which can leave you vulnerable to illnesses like colds and the flu. Although further studies are still being conducted to form concrete conclusions about the links between antioxidants and disease, many believe that by fortifying your body with high levels of antioxidants, you may prevent these “free radicals” from pillaging your good health. 1

Eating away at you: Rich Antioxidant Foods

Some stellar examples of antioxidant-enriched food include vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, carrots, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, seafood which can contain essential omega-3 fatty acids, whole grains, berries, apples and an array of other fruits as well as many additional sources. Eating a balanced diet full of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and fish (and some meat) can turn your body into a lean, mean free radical fighting machine. The only trick is to stick with the healthy eating and couple it with a steady amount of exercise. It takes some discipline, but this kind of dedication to healthy living pays off big. The reward can be lessening your risk of certain diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancers and hypertension to name a few. 2,3

Fast food culture: What not to eat


Probably nothing is more counterproductive to your healthy antioxidant pursuits than a trip to the local fast food joint (unless you restrain yourself and order a salad-with minimal dressing.) It is understandable that you won’t be able to eat a perfectly balanced diet replete with fresh fruit and vegetables every single day. Fortunately, free radical-fighting antioxidant enriched supplements are available. That way, you’re always covered, even if you give in to the siren call of a cheeseburger and large fries every once in a while.

Antioxidant armor: Superior supplement

The heart healthy supplement CoQ10 strengthens the heart muscle, increases energy levels, gives a boost to the immune system and slows the aging process among many other benefits. One of the better-known antioxidant rich supplements is Omega-3. Omega-3 promotes healthy cardiovascular function while fortifying the body’s immune system, aiding brain and eye function and decreasing risk of stroke and joint inflammation all with superior absorption.

So cough away Mr. Co-worker. You’re feeling healthy and strong. En Garde!
