Want to help keep your body running smoothly? Eat more vegetables and fruits! The antioxidants in produce help counter oxidative stress, boost your immune system and decrease your risk of illness.
The best source of antioxidant vitamins and minerals is a wholesome, varied diet – concentrate on eating plenty of fresh (preferably organic, if you can afford it) fruits, vegetables and nuts. After dinner, try fruit and nuts instead of a traditional, calorie-laden dessert.
If you can’t eat enough fruits and vegetables, consider supplementing to cover the gaps in your diet.
