How are your absorbed Anti-oxidant levels?

 

 

Ah – the anti-oxidant paradox, as recently cited in the Atlantic Magazine . . . 

No matter how you ingest and absorb the many anti-oxidants we should get from regular BALANCED diets in a perfect world; higher levels are better to counter oxidative free radicals.  Granted,  those free radical “scavengers” can have good specific roles in our bodies and YES – free radicals are outputs of aerobic exercise.

Stress, sun and smoke are major generators of these scavengers – DUH, we all are in Nirvana if we can avoid all three plus excessive body mass.  As I don’t live in Nirvana, I don’t like scavengers while I do have a newfound appreciation for scavenger hunting as my own life insurance policy and personal injury protection.

This Pharmanex graphic relates weight (BMI), dietary habits, supplementation and lifestyle choices to a scaled results of anti-oxidant scans. Note: Each individual is different in his/her ability to absorb healthy anti-oxidants so baseline measures vary.

Yet it is also an individual choice to acquire “life insurance and personal injury protection.

Yours in wellness,
