Superfoods are foods with properties known for their beneficial health effects. The particular constitution of these components of nature comes to thwart the progression of free radicals which occurs during chemical reactions such as oxidation. These particular constituents called antioxidants are found in several plants such as red fruits, carrots, spinach and tomatoes. The most common antioxidants are B-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, polyphenols and lycopene. Their regular integration into our diet is therefore essential for maintaining our health in the same way that it promotes healing when illness occurs.
Nature provides us with everything we need. The body is perfect and knows how to trigger the internal mechanisms necessary for its survival. In a state of equilibrium, the body ages very slowly and very rarely suffers from the disease. Our lifestyle is largely responsible for our health gaps. When we ignore the real needs of the body, we cause all kinds of chemical and acid reactions that destroy our cells. These excess chemical residues called free radicals damage our body tissues by causing chain reactions that can upset our DNA.
