Antioxidants to the rescue

Fortunately there are ways to limit the damage caused by free radicals and to slow the ageing process. The most powerful known thus far is a group of nutrients called antioxidants.

According to Dr Nicholas Perricone, dermatologist and professor at the University of Yale : « Antioxidants prevent damage caused by free radicals simply by giving the unstabilized molecules the electron that they need. This neutralizes the free radicals and they don’t try to feed off the same components in other cells ».

Getting a good supply of antioxidants is the best defense for slowing down the ageing process. These vital nutrients can be found in large quantities in cranberries, which makes Fruit d ‘Or a great place to begin your quest for youth.

As well as being an excellent source of antioxidants, cranberries have been used for centuries as medicine for treating scurvy and urinary infections. After more research, scientists proved that this fruit had anti-adhesion properties, which give it antibacterial powers.

The best antioxidant ever!

Cranberries contain large amounts of antioxidants. According to a study carried out by the Cranberry Institute, it is it’s anti-adhesive quality that gives this fruit such virtue, when compared with blueberries, red wine and grapes.
