    Antioxidants

    Sawadii Krap:

    Getting the right diet together in order to live a longer and hopefully healthier life isn't the easiest thing. One basis for picking the right diet really has to be the number and types of antioxidants that are contained in your food. Below is a list of the top ten highest natural sources of antioxidants

    1. TOMATOES
    2. BERRIES
    3. SPINACH
    4. WHOLE GRAINS
    5. GARLIC
    6. BROCCOLI
    7. TEA
    8. SOY
    9. CARROTS
    10. RED GRAPES

    For details of what antioxidants each of these foodstufs contain and how incorporating them into your diet could increase your life expectancy and health:

    ^ C is good
    I've been trying out this stuff.
    It keeps your skin from getting a sun burn. Seems to work. Though it also seems to prevent getting a deep dark tan as well.

    Now if they could just create a product that turned thai ladies white they would make millions.

    That's always a danger with these european products!

    Anyway I recently spent a day riding around the hills in Ranong in a T-shirt without any sunscreen and didn't get a burn. I took an extra capsule.
    I spend nearly an hour a day at the beach swimming and walking and I'm not really getting any color from it. Previously I would burn very easily.

    Vit C + E are very powerful in combination.

    Cranberries are being pushed as one of the best antioxidants?

    Stroller,

    True about the Vit C and E combo.

    Also Vit A as a catalyst, but not too much of it.

    Vit B13 ( or was it B3?), nicotinamide, is a very poweful protein/enzyme, increases metabolism and releases ATP, phosphate energy rapidly for use.

    Fairly expensive, used in sports etc., but the B vits are a whole other category, deserving of separate treatment.

    I used to take it when having to do excessive physical work 12 hours a day, amazing stuff. Not to be overused, only by body weight, or you'll skinny right down and disappear! Good for alzheimer's sufferers too, increased memory recall.

    All up, a balanced combination of Vits A B C D and E, with mega C works best and B and C taken with any iron supplements.

    I'll check up on that B3/13 vit to make sure.

    has anybody here heard of jiaogulan? It is not a source of antioxidants but actually makes your body produce its own.

    Check the article on "Natural Antioxidants"

    I agree, but I like Caesars with Worchester sauce and celery salt. I prefer cheroots. Garlic toast is good. Umm, well, I'd rather go for ice hockey, myself.
    Blueberries are good anti-oxs, too, but then you get purple teeth and tongue, so I'd opt for the white wine.

    Mangosteen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Good stuff. If you want a supplement that is purely mangosteen rind let me know.

    I've heard that unripe papaya is the healthiest thing in the World, but only when my Wife is trying to forcefeed me Isaan Somtam.

    Good, I have this almost every day, but I trained my supplier to make it the way I like!
