In the previous article, we discussed the topic of free radicals - what they are, how they arise and what role in your body perform antioxidants, which are a natural weapon against free radicals. Find out what antioxidants know science, what role they play, where you can find them and what else you can do to increase their amount in your body.
You cannot completely eliminate free radicals in your body. In addition, they also have a useful function in your body. Immune cells use free radicals to destroy bacteria that attack you. As usual in nature, success lies in balance. The right amount of free radicals and the right amount of antioxidants will give you health and a long life in good form. However, in times of epidemics of civilization diseases, your task is to reduce the amount of free radicals and increase the amount of antioxidants. How to do it? We divide antioxidants into first, second and third line of defense.
The answer to this question depends on your health. However, not only are diagnoses diagnosed, but also those already present in your body that you do not know about yet. For safety, regularly reach for products from all three groups:
The first line of defense is strengthened by: broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, onion, garlic, vitamin C, selenium, spinach, asparagus, avocado, whey, milk thistle, turmeric. 
The second line of defense is supported by: berries, cherries, citrus fruits, plums, green-leafed vegetables, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, olives, green tea, onions, garlic and cinnamon. 
The third line of defense is built of: pineapples, papayas, kiwi, asparagus, ginger, yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut. 
However, before you start eating asparagus with onions every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, know that this is not all. The amount of antioxidants in your body results not only from what you eat, but also from how you spend time and where you stay.
Sounds hard to accomplish, even impossible? In the next article you will learn about something that will help you in the battle for youth and health.
