Give Free Radicals a Knockout Punch With a Tasty Free Radical Fighter!
Free radical-generating substances can be found in the food we eat, the drugs and medicines we take, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. These substances include fried foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides, air pollutants, and much more(1).
Free radicals can damage the cells, causing them to age and leading to diseases like heart disease and cancer. Too many free radicals also mean an impaired immune system, making you even more susceptible to bacteria and viral infections(2).
This tasty Free Radical Fighter smoothie is made with swiss chard, avocado, watermelon, blackberries, fig, blueberries, flax seeds. All of those ingredients are packed with many nutrients including Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Those two vitamins are amongst the best-known antioxidants which can protect the body against free radical damage(3).
simply add all of the ingredients in a blender and blend about 30 seconds or until you reach a smooth consistency (Nutribullet works best for preparing smoothies). Enjoy!
