ANTI AGING HERBS
There are many wonderful anti aging herbs. These herbs are often found in anti aging products such as anti aging creams. In the fight against aging always remember that antioxidants are the best defense. They help stop the effects of aging. Antioxidants are molecules which attack free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules with an unpaired electron. As they take electrons from other molecules they damage normal cells. Damage caused by free radicals is called oxidation.
Oxidation has been linked to many
diseases including heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, arthritis,
cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration, immune suppression, Alzheimer's
and aging in general. Free radicals occur naturally in the body.
Additional free radicals are generated in the body by stress,
environmental toxins, smoking, alcohol, anesthetics and radiation.
Antioxidants are also made naturally by
the body. Fruits and vegetables are a main source of antioxidants but many
herbs contain antioxidants as well. Some herbs, such as Oregano, are very
rich in antioxidants.
Sprinkle on plenty of basil, dill,
ginger, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, tarragon, thyme and turmeric.
