Society is seeing an ever growing movement back to nature in the search for optimal health. Numerous well designed studies have concluded that nature has provided mankind with a wealth of powerful antioxidants that work in harmony with our bodies to promote overall good health.
As their name implies, antioxidants are molecules that counteract the damaging process of oxidation. Antioxidants can safely interact with free radicals and can help by terminating the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged.
Free radicals are groups of atoms with unpaired electrons. Free radicals can break down healthy human tissues in a process called oxidation, the same process that rusts iron and causes peeled apples to turn brown.
To put it simply, free radical damage can be limited by antioxidants. As free radicals are produced, antioxidants reduce the damage caused by limiting the spread of free radicals and removing them from the body. Antioxidants are essentially a clean-up crew, sweeping free radicals away and blocking their formation.
Antioxidants are found naturally in many of the fruits and vegetables that we eat. By eating a diet that is full of antioxidant rich foods, you are helping your body fight free radicals. If you want to take your battle against free radicals to the next level, then you should use products made from the antioxidant packed Muscadine grape.
Did you know?
It is estimated that by the age of 40, our antioxidant level is at 50%. By the age of 60-70, it drops down to around 5-10%. As we grow older, we begin to show the side effects of our decreasing supply of antioxidants. We experience more aches, pains and lost energy. Some of this may not be directly caused by getting older, but may be because of free radicals.
The Muscadine Grape: The King of the Super Fruit.
Unlike traditional bunch grapes (vitis vinifera), that only have 38 chromosomes, the Muscadine grape (vitis rotundifolia) contains 40 chromosomes. This extra pair of chromosomes helps the Muscadine claim the title of the King of the Super Fruit.
The Muscadine grape has over 100 powerful antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals and limit the amount of damage they cause. Each Mighty Muscadine product contains the power of these 100 antioxidants. From the supplement to the Muscadine juice, consumers can be confident they are receiving quality antioxidants unlike any other available on the market today.
