• broad complex of nutrients that contribute to the protection of the cells against oxidative stress




Antioxidants protect against free radicals

Anti-oxidants and anti-aging

Throughout the day free radicals are formed in our bodies. These unstable molecules can cause damage to our DNA and our cell membranes. (= oxidative stress). This makes cells age faster.

In our current society with the various influences of pollution, the intake of anti-oxidants may be necessary. With aging, the own production of anti-oxidants will also reduce, so extra intake may be needed.

It is also important to take a wide range of anti-oxidants in view of the synergistic effect of nutrients, vitamins, minerals (zinc and copper) and phytochemicals.

Anti-oxidants and sports

In athletes, the balance between free radicals and anti-oxidants can be disturbed faster by various causes:

• Increased oxygen circulation during exercise resulting in additional free radicals
• Chronic inflammations
• Increased exposure during training on UV and polluted air + altitude training

This disturbed balance will lead to fatigue, slower recuperation, and general feeling of being 'overtrained'.
Athletes take their anti-oxidants best in periods of rest and competition periods (not in accrual periods)

Anti-oxidants in the diet

In the diet we find antioxidants mainly in fruit and vegetables and especially the color is an indication for the presence of antioxidants:

• Vegetables or fruit with a yellow, red or orange color contain a lot of carotenoids
• Selenium is mainly in seafood (mussels, oysters, ..)
• Polyphenols can be found in red fruit, red wine and green vegetables
• Vitamin C in fruit such as kiwi, strawberry, citrus fruits, ... and vegetables such as brocoli.
• Vitamin E in olive oil or sunflower oil, almonds and nuts, vegetables and fruit (spinach, apricots, mango, ...)

The amount of anti-oxidants depends on the growth factors (amount of sun, weather conditions, ...). Often the antioxidants are just under the skin.

A varied diet is therefore important for an intake of a broad spectrum of anti-oxidants.
