Should you really seek out antioxidants?? Well, let me share what they do for you and then you decide:
Antioxidants prevent damage in the body. They do this by neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals damage tissue (everything is made of tissue), especially the organs and skin.
Think they are important?
Antioxidants are vitamins A, C, E and selenium. Here’s a list of foods rich in these:
