Regular exposure to a polluted environment and radiation emitted by cell phones and computers, plus frequent dining out, can have serious consequences for one's health. However, as the human body is able to produce antioxidants via healthy, fresh food, the following list of ingredients can help you.
1. Broccoli contains Vitamins A, B, C and E, as well as fiber, lutein and carotene--a rich nutritional mix that makes this a representative antioxidant-rich vegetable.
2. Avocados are a rich source of Vitamin E.
3. Spinach contains lutein.
4. Pumpkins, tomatoes and carrots are colorful vegetables filled with carotene, while tomatoes are rich lycopene sources; the smaller the tomato, the more antioxidant is produced.
5. Wild salmon has an abundance of astaxanthin, Vitamin D and E, which are important elements for producing more antioxidants. Omega-3 and unsaturated fatty acids are also found in wild salmon.
6. Berries such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are rich carotene and Vitamin C sources; blueberries top this group because they also contain plenty of anthocyanidin.
7. Garlic produces sulfide, which revs up antioxidants and boosts metabolism.
8. Green Tea removes grease and contains catechin, which may produce lots of antioxidants.
9. Bananas offer three main antioxidant resources--vitamins C and E and carotene－as well as calcium and magnesium.
