We’ve all heard of antioxidants being good for us but what exactly are they, how much do we need, and what are the best sources to get these magical substances.

tea has antioxidants the amazing tea company

Firstly, oxidative stress causes free radicals that we are exposed to daily. Free radicals can cause damage to proteins, DNA, and cells that if not fought off can lead to disease. This is where antioxidants come in, the naturally found substance protects our cells from damage. Cells can be damaged naturally through aging which is also reduced by antioxidants like vitamin C that is a common ingredient in anti-aging serums.

10 benefits of antioxidants the amazing tea company

Research suggests that on average we need 8-11,000 antioxidants per day in order to not experience damage from oxidative stress. You may be wondering, how and where am I going to get that many! Lucky for you, I have compiled 10 easy ways to get your antioxidant units daily even on those busy work days.

1.Beans 

Red beans, Kidney Beans, Pinto beans

Beans are an easy food to add into your meals if you're already making some pasta or salad add in a cup of beans or even into soups and stews!

2. Dark Chocolate

Yes CHOCOLATE - I repeat dark CHOCOLATE

What else is there to say there is nothing easier than just grabbing a few pieces of dark chocolate to get those extra antioxidants in for the day and a nice rich flavour.

3. Pecans

Pecans can be added into salads for an extra crunch and extra antioxidants.

4. Berries 

Namely Blueberries, Goji Berries, Elderberries and Strawberries ( all of which you can find in The Amazing Company Teas)

Skip the banana you usually grab and have a bowl of berries instead or buy frozen berries and toss them in a smoothie to amp up your antioxidants.

5. Matcha Green Tea

You can add matcha into smoothies, drink it as a latte, or just a regular tea that can get you those antioxidants.

 

6. Black Tea

There are a lot of black tea lovers out there so keep having your morning tea to aid in your antioxidant units.

7. Artichokes

You can roast them on the BBQ, chop them up and add them to sauces, or even just cook them as a nice side dish for your dinner.

8. Spices & Herbs - Sumac, Cloves, Nutmeg, Cinnamon
-Oregano, Thyme, Parsley, Rosemary, Sage

Spices are an easy way to get in antioxidants you can add them into your food or drinking them in teas and smoothies!

Adding herbs to your meals for extra flavour will also give you extra antioxidants so a two for one deal on a delicious meal!

9. Kale & Spinach

Add these two leafy greens to anything! A sandwich, skip the lettuce and make a kale salad, blend them in a smoothie and you can't even taste them.. the list goes on of the ways to use these to take your antioxidant game up.

10. Turmeric

We’ve already talked about turmeric in these blogs but this holy grail spice can be added into food, smoothies, and tea in order to pump up the antioxidants.


Hopefully, now that you’ve got a few easy add on ideas you’ll go out and get your antioxidants in to maintain a healthy functioning immune system whilst also keeping yourself young!

I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2017. to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in september 2019, thank you sir , this is his email contact if you require his help oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com whatsapp +2348136482342

My name is Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After a 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he loved me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But I couldn’t stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which I use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fixed Email: urgentspellcast@gmail.com or urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: https://urgentspellcast.wordpress.com/ WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109
