Antioxidants are natural compounds that help protect the body from havoc caused by free radicals.  Antioxidants are intimately involved in the prevention of cellular damage -- the common pathway leading to cancer, aging, and a variety of diseases.

Beta-carotene is a precursor to vitamin A (retinol) and is present in liver, fish oils, egg yolk, full fat milk, butter, spinach, carrots, squash, broccoli, yams, tomato, cantaloupe, peaches, and grains. Because beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A by the body there is no set requirement.

Vitamin C: Ascorbic acid is required for at least 300 metabolic functions in the body. A water soluble vitamin present in citrus fruits and juices, green peppers, cabbage, spinach, broccoli, kale, cantaloupe, kiwi, and strawberries. The RDA is 60 mg per day.

Vitamin E: d-alpha tocopherol. A fat soluble vitamin important in the prevention of cancer and cardio-vascular disease.  Vitamin E is present in nuts, seeds, vegetable and fish oils, whole grains (esp. wheat germ), fortified cereals, and apricots. Current recommended daily allowance (RDA) is 15 IU per day for men and 12 IU per day for women.

Nutrition is  Key to Aging Gracefully
There are some well-researched nutrients that have been shown to help in this process. The problem is that not all bodies are created equal.  In fact, we are all quite different and unique, and a food that is good for one person may cause harm to another. Even twins, as they age, may have different dietary needs according to their microbiome (microbial genes.) 
The Nutribiotica Healthy Aging protocol will help you live a healthier and longer life by identifying the triggers in the diet and environment that induce premature aging in your body due to your unique genetic composition, microbial flora, digestive function and level of toxicity.
Antioxidants, Nutrition & Longevity

You can help to slow down aging at the cellular level by choosing foods that are anti-inflammatory in nature and rich in antioxidants.  Antioxidants are intimately involved in the prevention of cellular damage -- the common pathway for cancer, aging, and a variety of diseases.  Free radicals can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules.  Once formed they can start a chain reaction and damage cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane.  To prevent free radical damage the body uses antioxidants as a defense mechanism.
Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged.   There are several enzyme systems within the body that scavenge free radicals.  The principal micronutrient (vitamin) antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. Additionally, selenium, a trace metal that is required for proper function of one of the body's antioxidant enzyme systems, is sometimes included in this category. The body cannot manufacture these micronutrients so they must be supplied in the diet.

As we age, a good deal of the emphasis is placed on exterior appearance.  Many of today's treatments are geared to reverse the obvious signs of aging , shown on the skin and by weight gain. And what about the inside of our bodies?

Anti-aging From the Inside Out
Our organs also age – the liver, heart, kidneys, colon, and each one of our trillions of cells are aging just like the skin. Not surprisingly, they also need some attention and TLC to maintain their youthfulness.  In addition, a number of environmental and genetic factors contribute to aging.  Identifying and treating these factors can help slow down the aging process and even reverse some of the  existing damage. 
Dark circles under the eyes, liver spots (skin discoloration), sagging and blotchy skin, adult acne, cellulite, decreased muscle tone, graying, balding, and flaky skin are usually the consequence of food intolerances, allergies, inflammation, infection, decaying intestinal flora, a weakened immune system and hormone imbalances; all of which are connected to the body’s detoxifying pathways and contribute to aging.  While these imbalances are symptoms of one or more systems in the body not functioning properly they can usually be reversed with appropriate nutritional guidance.

Youthful Aging Beyond the Skin.

Antioxidants may hold the secret to longevity.

As we age, we become more susceptible to long term stress from oxidation (a condition in which the body has too many free radicals) and inflammation on the cellular level.  Antioxidants help cells ward off damage from free radicals and minimize the impact of aging.
