Naturally gorgeous celebs such as Kelly Brook, Holly Willoughby and Kate Middleton often get asked about the secret to their bodies, and we think we might have discovered it. One of the open secrets to keeping your body healthy and youthful is actually down to maintaining just the right levels of antioxidants… who knew?!
Anti-aging agents, as they’re commonly known, equip the body with everything it needs in order to defend itself from the cell damaging effects of free radicals. (Geeky scientific fact of the day: free radicals are a natural product of the body’s metabolism and a necessary part of the body’s repair process.)
Our skin, eyes and hair are able to repair, recover and rejuvenate themselves with the support of antioxidants, and there are a few great ways to increase antioxidant levels…
Tip 1. Maintaining a diet rich in fresh and dried fruits, vegetables, nuts and wholegrains is the best place to start. A green salad with red tomatoes, purple aubergine and creamy white pine nuts not only looks colourful and yummy, but will also provide a good balance of vitamins and minerals too.
Tip 2. Including a daily antioxidant supplement is another great suggestion, especially if you’re always on the go. Something like Maxitone Finesse Active can really make a difference, as it’s packed with a balance of nutrients and antioxidants designed specifically for women. It can also help you sleep better and boosts your immune system – so lots of benefits there!
A body that gets what it needs to be healthy not only looks good, but feels good too, so get those antioxidants into your bodies and really feel the difference!
