ANTIOXIDANTS - THE KEY TO LONGEVITY.
Longevity ie to live a long and fulfilled life, gradually and gracefully ageing and free of dread diseases (cancer, diabetes, hypertension, dementia, coronary disease etc) is what most people probably desire.
To attain this state, many factors come into play - genetics, lifestyle choices, maintenance of our physical and emotional well-being, exposure to sickness, viruses, toxins and pollutants among others.
Key to longevity is our regular intake of antioxidants, as these combat free radical cells which, if not contained, directly contribute to premature ageing and contracting some of the dread diseases.
Natural sources of antioxidants are fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices.
All RedBushed products contain fruit and the herbal plant Rooibos (Aspalathus Linearis) which is the only source of the potent antioxidant Aspalathan.
Free radical cells, if not controlled, will attack healthy cells which in turn will become free radicals themselves, and thus a vicious cycle of cell destruction occurs in our bodies, leading to life-threatening complications over time. Enter Aspalathan, our super free radical cell scavenger, promoting Apoptosis within the free radical cells ie it causes them to "commit cellular suicide" after which they are passed out of the body. This is natures way of eliminating free radical cells.
This is but one reason why the regular intake of antioxidants is vital to our well-being. When you consume RedBushed products, you may be assured of a good and varied provision of vital antioxidants.
In fact, we have our products scientifically measured for their ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) SCORE. This is a measure of the antioxidative potential of our products which is conducted at the Oxidative Stress Research Unit, Cape Peninsula University Of Technology, Cape Town, South Africa.
When you consume RedBushed products, you are indulging in all natural, antioxidant-rich,nutrient-dense, functional food, without any nasties added.
ps Have any of the foods in your kitchen been measured for their antioxidant capacity??
