Did you know that antioxidants are a great addition to your summertime routine? Spending time with friends in the sunshine, outdoor workouts, etc. can all lead to an increase in free-radical damage. By adding antioxidants to your diet, you can help to reduce free-radicals. But where can you find antioxidants? Well, mainly in fruits and vegetables - especially the bright ones! Berries, leafy greens and citrus fruits all contain a variety of antioxidants. We get it though, when you're having fun in the sun, the last thing you might be thinking about it how many antioxidants you consume. Try blending them up in a smoothie, or in a delicious raspberry lemonade!
