Vanilla Berry Buzz Antioxidant Smoothie Recipe

May 15, 2016

Make your health a priority this morning with our Vanilla Berry Buzz Antioxidant Smoothie recipe

This is one of those breakfasts that actually make you excited to get out of bed in the morning! It’s quick, it’s healthy and it’s delicious. Best of all, it’s full of antioxidants!

 

What are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants help to protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. These free radicals can come from a couple of places. Our bodies produce them, as a by-product of metabolism, or we can encounter them through our environment. Cigarette smoke, radiation, paint fumes, or chemicals in cleaning products for example, can all create free radicals in our bodies.

Free radicals are essentially like a car with three wheels. They’re unstable. A car with only three wheels can’t drive straight; it’s all over the road, hitting things and causing damage. Likewise, free radicals are unstable atoms damaging cells and tissues throughout our bodies. This contributes to disease, aging and degeneration.

In this case, the antioxidant would be like the car mechanic, that gives the car is forth wheel. Now with four wheels, the car is able to drive straight without causing damage. Antioxidants in our bodies help to stabilize free radicals by giving the atom another electron. Stabilizing a free radical helps to prevent damage to our cells helping to maintain good health.
