Taking care of your overall health is as significant as taking care of your skin. We all have been skincare junkies, but some of us really fail to take care of what we gulp down resulting in imbalanced nutrition. Vitamins and minerals are not only needed by kids and children, it is equally important for us adults to have a balanced nutrition to scavenge the bad in our body. In the coming days we are going to see a series of health supplements, the individual benefits of them and how they can be a boon to your health.
Most of you probably would have heard about antioxidants. If not, do you remember seeing anti-aging products rich in antioxidants? Or an expert talking about super foods that are loaded with antioxidants? Still if you are wondering what it is, let me brief it out for you.
Antioxidants? What are they?
Antioxidants are substances that inhibit oxidation. Basically they prevent or stop cell damage caused by oxidants (free radicals). Oxidants naturally occur in your body to ward off viruses and microbes but too much of oxidants can lead to serious health hazards like heart diseases and cancers. They are not only produced naturally in your body but you also get an overload of oxidants through environmental exposure of smoke, pollution, ultra violet radiation, alcohol consumption etc. which can further destruct your cells. So it highly crucial that we uptake antioxidants into our body.
Antioxidants are highly present in bright colored fruits like goji berries, wild blueberries, cranberries, veggies like artichokes cilantro, herbs like clove, cinnamon, oregano, turmeric and and even dark chocolates. Pine Bark Extract is one of them.
What is Pine Bark Extract?
Pine Bark Extract is nothing but the extract taken from the bark of the pine tree, mostly found in the eastern countries. This extract is loaded with Oligomeric Proanthocyanidin compounds (OPC’s) which is a class of flavonoids, a famous anti-inflammatory compound that benefits our cardiovascular system. These powerful free radical scavengers helps our body to reduce oxidative damage.
