ANTI-AGING/ANTIOXIDANT HERBS

Antioxidants 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 call 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 almost all herbs contain antioxidants as well. Some herbs, such as Oregano, are very rich in antioxidants.
