The theme of this week’s blog follows the superpowers given to us by antioxidants. It’s especially difficult to keep up with the required number of antioxidants in the western world, with so many foods being heavily processed. Antioxidants fight off our bodies free radicals keeping our cells and tissue healthy. If antioxidant levels drop below free radical levels our bodies are at risk of broken down tissue, overloaded immune system, damaged or mutated cells and accelerated ageing. With all that being said let’s jump into Kuranda Wholefood’s top three antioxidant stars.
From blueberries to raspberries to acai berries, these little guys are chock full of free radical fighting stars. Acai berries can even contain up to 18,000 antioxidants making them one of the best options out there for those looking to up their count! Easily found in our Acai Berry Protein Bites.
Not only do nuts contain tons of fibre, protein and healthy fats, but they also provide just as much antioxidant goodness as acai berries. In fact, pecans have an ORAC value (oxygen radical absorption value) of a whopping 18,000! Kuranda Wholefoods’ Pecan and Pistachio Nut Bars are the perfect options when you’re on the go and need a boost.
3). Raw Cacao
As discussed in our previous article, raw cacao is an amazing source of antioxidants; however, it also comes jam-packed with mood enhancing properties and increased mental capabilities.
