Free radicals (Immune System II)
Defeating Free Radicals the Smart and Delicious Way (AAI Smoothie Healing and Optimizing) Defeating free radicals can and should be done through proper alimentation. The theory that links the presence of free radicals in the body to increased life-threatening conditions and illnesses, including cancer, is gaining support in medical and holistic healing circles. Free radicals are molecules taken in from the environment that lack an electron.
This missing electron makes the free radical molecule unstable and prone to stealing electrons from other surrounding atoms. When ingested, free radicals steal electrons from the bits of healthy cells. This process has been cited as a cause of premature aging and other illnesses and diseases, including cancer. Defeating free radicals is the first step to optimizing your body and its organs’ functions.
This second chapter of our immune-boosting smoothies series will help us understand how to combat and beat free radicals. This knowledge will ensure maintaining the efficiency of our immune system, which in turn, assures us a better tomorrow.

One of the best ways of defeating free radicals is by consuming foods high in antioxidants. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. They do this by donating one of their electrons to the free radical so it stops looking for an electron to steal. Antioxidants remain stable even after they give an electron to the free radical. Certain nutrients, like vitamins C and E, are particularly good at protecting the body against the destructors of free radicals.
The best way to ensure you’re getting a sufficient intake of antioxidants is by eating a balanced diet consisting of at least 5 to 8 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. A smoothie is the easiest way to do this and to help you defeat free radicals.

- Muscadine grapes
These grapes, in particular, are extremely beneficial at filling the body with antioxidants. Just 35 grapes are enough to give you 23% of your recommended intake of antioxidants. This specific grape species is also a particularly strong source of ellagic acid, which is known to be a massive contender in the fight against cancer. Another essential factor to keep in mind is that stress creates free radicals.
If you are overworking any aspect of your body, including your mind, the stress creates the formation of free radicles. Excessive exercise or over-strenuous workouts also cause oxidative damage, which reverts to forming more free radicals to damage healthy cells. If you’ve noticed that you’ve been working out harder to keep up with your physique, it may be a sign that your hormone levels are declining. If your testosterone is low, whether you are a man or a woman, working out will require extra effort and longer sessions. Testosterone therapy for men or testosterone therapy for women, which usually comes with balancing a few other hormones as dictated by her blood work, can help with that declination in the gym. AAI Clinics is the best clinic for balancing hormones. You can look up our Google ratings.
