We have constantly heard from the tv advertisements and some sort of mass media promotion the term “free radical”. But, admit it or not, only a few have grasped the definite knowledge on what it is about and how destructive it may be to our body. Free radicals are molecules which are missing an electron (a negatively charged particle). These could exist as a by-product of body metabolism. In this sense, all of us are predisposed to acquire free radicals from our day-to-day living knowing the fact that we utilize oxygen in our bodily metabolism for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) utilization. But as far as science is concern, there are means to thwart the destructive effects of these free radicals.
Inasmuch as we have dwelt with free radicals in the previous statement, we too will deal with antioxidants which are known to combat the ill-famed free radicals. How this antioxidant does its counterattack, you may ask. According to a study conducted, these antioxidants act as free radical scavengers by preventing and repairing damages caused by reactive oxygen species. This is the mechanism of the human body to offset oxidative stress by producing antioxidants, which are either naturally produced in situ, or externally supplied through foods and/or supplements.
Some of the fruits that contain antioxidants are: Prunes, raisins, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, plums, oranges, red grapes and cherries. Nonetheless, during the 230th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, a group of researchers at the University of Scranton said that coffee was the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S diet. Ganoderma Coffee provides more than just a morning jolt- that steaming cup of Ganoderma Coffee could also facilitate the production of free radical scavengers thereby boosting the body’s immune system.
Aside from its sumptuous aroma and flavor, would you exchange the beneficial effects the Ganoderma Coffee in your diet?
