The telltale signs of aging creep in ever so slowly. The occasional wrinkles, the fine lines and creases and sagging skin that are brought on by the advancing years are all marks of a life that has been lived to its fullest. However, did you know that an army called “antioxidants” is constantly at war within your body to fend off these signs of aging to keep you young at heart forever?
Your skin takes a major toll of the environmental chemicals, dust, smoke, allergens and sunlight. The cumulative effects of the environmental stress ages your skin faster, making you look older than your years. Anti-oxidants are vital for your skin health as they ward off the signs and symptoms of aging, keeping your skin pliant and revitalized.
Here is how anti-oxidants help your skin…
Here Is A Bit Of Science…
Anti-oxidants are potent molecules that antagonize the oxidative process. Oxidative stress damages the body cells, interrupting with their functions. The oxidative molecules such as free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced within the body by environmental factors such as UV radiation and pollutants.
Free radicals are also synthesized as a by-product of cellular metabolic processes. These oxidants donate their highly charged oxygen atoms to the cells creating an environment that destroys the cells. The beneficial role of oxidants is seen in liver where they work to detoxify the body and in immune system where oxidants kill off harmful bacteria and viruses.
Anti-oxidants work rigorously to neutralize the oxidants by happily accepting their charged oxygen atoms in order to protect your cells from their harmful effects. However, an imbalance between the concentration of oxidants and anti-oxidants can cause extensive cellular damage.
Skin cells are highly susceptible to the effects of oxidative molecules. Lines and wrinkles are the inevitable effect of decreased anti-oxidant levels. As a result, oxidant molecule rampage around, destroying the functions of skin cells. Increasing the intake of anti-oxidants in diet can help keep the signs of aging at bay, imparting a healthy, youthful glow to the skin.
Foods Containing Anti-Oxidants
Food contains abundance of anti-oxidants (with pretty hefty names that you might never have heard of before) such as carotenoids (like beta carotene), vitamin C, vitamin E, flavonoids, tannins, phenols and lignans, indoles, lutein, lycopene, catechins, anthocyanins, cryptoxanthins, Selenium, Manganese, Zinc etc.
Plants are the best sources of anti-oxidants. The super foods that are loaded with anti-oxidants include:
- Berries like blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries etc.
- Kidney beans
- Nuts like walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts and pecans etc.
- Seeds like sunflower, sesame or ground flaxseed
- Fruits such as apples, citrus fruits, grapes, peaches, nectarines, plums, mangoes, kiwi fruit, avocados, tomatoes, pink grapefruit, watermelons etc
- Green leafies like spinach, parsley etc.
- Vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower etc.
- Sea foods
- Whole grains
- Lean meat
Don’t forget to get your fair share of anti-oxidants to protect your skin cells from age-related damage! Stay young. Stay beautiful.
