Antioxidants – How We Benefit

The following is an extract from an article published on NaturalNews.com

There’s a new reason, and a big one, to think that we benefit from free-radical-inhibiting antioxidants. We’ve long thought that by reducing free radicals, antioxidants can help prevent cancer, of course. But a recent experiment at Johns Hopkins and published in the March 14 issue of Science shows how antioxidants may be doing much more: interfering with the growth of cancers that are already established, and potentially, even reversing them once established, by knocking out communications signals between cancer cells that encourage cells to grow and divide. Those communications signals turn out to be… free radicals, which the cancer cells often produce in abundance.

Highest Anthocyanins & Polyphenols

200% to 300% The Anthocyanins & 130% The Polyphenols Compared to Red Wine

Anthocyanins and polyphenols are shown in scientific studies to be powerful antioxidants, benefiting the whole body by protecting the cells from free radicals, preventing oxidative stress, promoting healthy response to inflammation, and supporting bodily functions for optimal aging health.†

Polyphenols protect the plants from potentially harmful elements in our environment, like ultraviolet radiation and pests.  Emerging science further suggests fruits and vegetables that are high in polyphenols, may help protect our whole health just as they help protect plants.   Researchers now believe that it is the polyphenols that are present in red wine that maybe contributing to the French Paradox.  These phenols compounds inhibit the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and may contribute to good heart health.3

Maqui SuperberryTM has incredibly high levels of naturally occurring polyphenol antioxidants, and is truly the antioxidant superfruit for supporting optimal health.
