Why Antioxidants Matter

To work toward optimal health, your body needs a wide variety of nutrients.  Today, we’re going to talk about antioxidants and why you should make them a focus in your diet!

What Are Antioxidants?

To understand what antioxidants do, let’s start by looking at free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that have unpaired electrons, so they attack other cells in search of electrons. Left unchecked, they can lead to oxidative stress.

Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals, and they come in many forms. Your body makes some antioxidants on its own, such as glutathione, ubiquinol, and uric acid. Other antioxidants come from your food, including vitamin C and beta-carotene.

Truth

Our citrus-flavored health drink, Truth, is the perfect way to supplement your antioxidant levels so you can work toward optimal health! Truth features BotanImmune, a unique blend of botanicals and superfruits including pomegranate, açai, mangosteen, and goji berry, and ActiZorb, a proprietary blend of minerals and enzymes.

These two blends combine to offer key nutrients, including beta-carotene and your fully daily requirement of vitamin C. By providing you with antioxidants, Truth will support your immune function and help protect your health from oxidative stress. You can learn more about Truth here!
