The Advantages Of Antioxidants: The Secret To Looking & Feeling Young

In a recent post I discussed some of the advantages of antioxidants, specifically from the Goji Berry. Without a doubt, a diet high in foods containing these powerful antioxidants is a sure fire way to look and feel younger.

A lot of people don’t believe it, but I’m actually 43 years old. I owe my youthful appearance all to antioxidants…

Am I really 43? Maybe, maybe not…but based on my appearance, most people think I’m actually younger than I really am. My youthful appearance has a lot to do with my healthy lifestyle, including a diet high in antioxidants rich foods.

Antioxidants are responsible for keeping you looking younger and feeling younger by slowing down the aging process. They also help prevent the formation of cancer and degenerative diseases (including the #1 killer – heart disease). Think of antioxidants as the superhero that fights off the evil aging enemy.

Advantages Of Antioxidants

Mmmm...yummy antioxidants!

But wait…there’s more! Antioxidants can also improve how you look in the mirror. For all you fitness enthusiasts (which I hope you all are), antioxidants will also help you build more muscle and burn more fat by speeding up your muscle recovery after intense exercise. You may not know this, but intense exercise can actually create free radicals in your body. How’s that for irony? These free radicals are also known to cause inflammation in the body. You can reduce the damage caused by free radicals during exercise and increase muscle recovery by consuming a decent amount of antioxidants approximately one hour before your workout.

Ultimately by consuming more antioxidants, you’re going to have an overall healthier, leaner, stronger, and sexier body.

Here’s A Video I Filmed Discussing The Healthy Advantages Of Antioxidants


Here’s a list of some of the most powerful antioxidant foods, drinks, and spices to consume:

  • Acai fruit
  • Beans (black and red)
  • Berries (blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, goji, raspberries, strawberries)
  • Cherries
  • Cocoa
  • Coffee
  • Dark chocolate
  • Grapes
  • Most herbs and spices (basil, black pepper, cinnamon, oregano, turmeric)
  • Nuts
  • Potatoes (purple)
  • Red wine
  • Seeds
  • Teas (black, chammomile, green, oolong, rooibos (red), white, yerba mate)
  • Any many other fruits and vegetables

Example Of A Pre-Workout Antioxidant Loaded Snack

  • 100% sprouted whole grain toast (I use ezekial bread)

    Pre-Workout Snack To Pump The Body Full Of Antioxidants

  • Almond Butter
  • Blackberry Jam
  • Blueberries or sliced strawberries (fresh)
  • Iced green tea or rooibos tea
  • Raw honey
  1. Toast bread
  2. Spread almond butter and a small amount of blackberry jam on toast.
  3. Top with fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries.
  4. Eat the toast with a glass of iced green or rooibos tea with a tsp of honey added as a sweetener.

Consume this approximately one hour before your training. This pre-workout snack will provide your body with many different varieties of youth promoting and muscle protecting antioxidants.

Your Body Is Attacked By Free Radicals Everyday

Regardless of how well you eat and how active you are, your body is attacked everyday by free radicals (causing oxidative stress in the body). As mentioned, these free radicals are generated from exercise, junk food from your diet, the environment, including air pollution, exposure to chemicals in your shampoo, soap, etc., smoke, and sun exposure.

Therefore it is essential to consume more antioxidant rich foods and supplements in your diet. To continuously supply your body with antioxidants throughout the day and help fight the constant exposure to free radicals, try to consume at least 1-2 sources of antioxidant rich foods with every meal and snack. This will help fight the damage and aging caused by free radicals.

It’s inevitable…if you’re like me, there are times where you will not have access to the antioxidant rich foods listed above. This is why I highly recommend, and always use a powerful and synergistic blend of antioxidants in supplement form. I don’t take many health supplements because I get most of my requirements from the real source (food), however I do supplement with the following two high quality supplements:

  • Acai berry

    Brad,

    Honestly, I wouldn’t have guessed you were 43. You could win a lot at those “Guess My Age” fair games.

    For the past couple of years, I’ve taken an annual cruise. A lot of the workers on the ships are from countries like the Philippines, Indonesia, etc. Like I was with you, I’m always way off on guessing their real age.

    The last server I had was named Gusti, and I really thought the guy was around 19. Turns out he was in his mid-30′s with a wife and a couple of kids. Needless to say, I was shocked.

    I’ve asked a lot of the workers the question of “Why do you look so young?” It may seem like an odd question, but they say it’s one they get a lot. From the workers I’ve asked, they’ve all told me the same thing: “we eat a lot of fruits and veggies.”

    Compared to the standard American diet, they eat a lot less processed food, more whole foods, and they also tend to get more exercise. The answer to why they look so much younger than the typical American may be a little more complicated than eating fruits and veggies, but it definitely is part of the solution.

    Thanks Niki….good to see your diet is comprised of most of these foods. You can’t beat sources of antioxidants from REAL food. Unfortunately not every does that so that’s where supplements can help. It looks like Prograde is only available in North America. It’s too bad because they are top of the line with a money back guarantee!

    Brad, Excellent lists. I know I don’t spend enough time focusing on anti-oxidants.

    And … I am 44. So I’ll be the old guy in this thread, then. Thought we were brothers in our deceptive age-thing, but I guess not. Still with you on trying to find ways to live for the long-haul and enjoy every day of it.

    I have to admit that I’m a bit guilty of not focusing on the amount of antioxidants I get.

    It’s clear that the advantages of antioxidants are there … maybe I’ll start. I do see that coffee and green tea made the list — I get my fair share of those antioxidants :D

    Green tea and coffee are great options…try to stick with organic coffee beans though as the coffee bean is highly sprayed with pesticides.
