Another nutrition talk!
Let’s talk about antioxidants!
These are substances that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Some examples of antioxidants include vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, and selenium which are rich in the foods that can be seen in the photo. Consuming these foods rich in antioxidants, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and whole grains, can help improve our overall health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
