Antioxidants have been in the headlines for years. And we know they're good for us. But what exactly are they?
Antioxidants can be vitamins, minerals or other nutrients that battle free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that are missing a vital, stabilizing electron. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by providing the elusive electrons free radicals seek.
Seems natural enough, but free radicals are desperately searching for electrons; this means they steal electrons from unsuspecting molecules with reckless abandon, leaving damage in their wake. This is because when a molecule loses an electron, it becomes unstable itself – it becomes a new free radical. This ongoing theft-fest creates a domino effect of unhappy molecules and wreaks havoc on cells, DNA and more. So while free radicals are making mischief in your body, you suffer the long-term consequences of their cumulative damage, called oxidative stress. This oxidative stress is believed to play a role in many diseases, including heart disease, Alzheimer's and cancer.
Antioxidants in your diet
Many substances can act as antioxidants. However, some are more potent than others. Top contenders include: beta-carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, selenium and manganese.
These antioxidants – among others – are found in a wide variety of foods, most notably fruits and vegetables. The efficacy of the antioxidants can be affected by many things, including how long they've been stored, if they're eaten cooked or raw, and so on. Avoid overcooking or boiling foods, as this can reduce their antioxidant heft.
So, which foods pull in the best numbers in terms of antioxidants? Below are some top contenders. Keep in mind that in order to get a full spectrum of health-giving nutrients, you should eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

Nopalea™ and its antioxidants
Deep in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, a rare and potent class of antioxidants grow inside the fruit of the Nopal cactus. Called Betalains, these antioxidants are proven to help the body reduce inflammation and detoxify itself.
