You probably have been wondering and asking all the questions of what antioxidants are, and how they play a major role in our overall health and wellness. If you would ask Mr. Webster, the definition of antioxidants “are any of various substances such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, and alpha-tocopherol that inhibit oxidation or reactions promoted by oxygen and peroxides and that include many held to protect the living body from the deleterious effects of free radicals.”
In other words, antioxidants are the good guys and they help protect our bodies from harmful free radicals coming from stress, pollution, radiation from the sun and etc. But before anything else, have you ever wondered how these antioxidants came into existence? It has been discovered that the history of antioxidants started way back in the beginning of time when early bacteria living in the planet’s oxygen-deprived environment discovered to draw out power from the sun by mixing carbon dioxide from the air and dihydrogen oxide or water from the sea, enabling them to form the sugar they needed for their tissues to operate and function properly. This process was then known as photosynthesis and provided these early bacteria a competitive edge over other competing and related species, however it created a problem.
The byproduct of this process produced oxygen, which was a threat to these early bacteria for it has the possibility of destroying their DNA through oxidation. As a solution, they designed specialized antioxidants which we now refer to as phytochemicals, having the qualities that allow them to process the extra electrons discovered on oxidized substances and free radicals. This is how antioxidants are born. Phytochemicals have antioxidants in them that filter out these free radicals and within your body, different types of antioxidants are discovered in specific places where they can be most effective. For example, some act only in the greasy environment of fat tissues while others act in the fluid, water-like environment of muscle tissues. The latter is particularly essential, as the main power manufacturers within muscular tissues, the mitochondria, also flow fresh air radicals in oxygen-poor conditions. The capability of antioxidants to mop up these radicals allows them to perform an essential part in the combat against cancer growth and development as well as cellular damage.
Diet and exercise increase levels of antioxidants getting rid of toxins, which is the reason why it is recommended… it is healthy. The capability of antioxidants to mop up toxins allows them to perform an essential part in the combat against various illnesses and chronic diseases that our body is facing each and every day, especially in modern times where almost everything is instant and highly processed, compromising even our healthy diets. That is why even our main source of nutrition is compromised and has already been devoid of nutrients, it is now high time for us to seek the help of nutritional supplementation.
As we go on this journey called life, it is inevitable for us to encounter problems and challenges along the way. This is actually healthy and normal because it helps us grow and become stronger and better people than before. Of all these countless and breath taking trials, there is only one that can be considered a major problem and should never ever be ignored. This problem is something that you must address right away or else you will die! Yes you read it right…this problem can kill you.
I suppose a lot of thoughts are already running through your head right now, curious about what the problem is I am talking about. This problem is actually not a stranger to us. In fact, all of us have this and all of us know about this issue. This is what we all know as HEALTH. Not what you have expected or maybe you were thinking worse but yes Health is the number one thing that a lot of people are having problems with nowadays, especially now that we are living in a highly industrialized world where most of the things we need are undergoing harmful chemical processes with the purpose of making it good for us. Very ironic when you think about it. All these efforts are doing more harm than good, and its just sad that millions of people are dying due to this one big common problem we have with our health.
Health is something most of us take for granted. I really do not know the exact reasons why some people do, when they are already aware of the possible consequences of taking health for granted. It may be due to the fact that maintaining and taking care of your health is too much effort and too boring for some people, which is why they just stop thinking and caring about it. They just want to enjoy life, carefree. Well, I have got to tell you that this is the wrong mindset and that one can still enjoy life while taking care of their health at the same time. In fact, if you take proper care of your health then you would really be enjoying life more because with good health, you have many more opportunities to enjoy yourself.
Taking care of ones health is not actually as hard as you might think. I believe that having bad health needs more exertion effort than having good health. Just think about it, if you take care of your health then you will get to enjoy everything that God has blessed you with. Everything that you have worked hard for will not be put to waste because you will be enjoying the fruits of your labor. On the contrary, if you take your health for granted thinking that its just too much effort, you will get sick and weak which will require you to even exert more effort for healing an recovery. Not only will you be exerting too much effort when you get sick but you will be making other people worry about you and make them exert much effort as well. Health is wealth, you only have one…so take good care of it.
Health and Wealth have a lot of things in common. In fact, they both have so much in common that the only difference separating them is one letter. Would you ever think this was a coincidence? For the spelling part, I guess so…but for the definition of both…NEVER. Health and Wealth always come together and should always go together. It was never an accident that these two words work together like couples. Wealth is nothing without health, although health can still exist without wealth, but it would not really be considered good health since you will not be able to buy the things you need. So in other words, health and wealth mutually work hand in hand together and we need both of them.
When we are young, we had all the health we ever needed. Life was limitless and we always felt that we could do anything we want, whenever we want to and wherever we want it. We were so full of energy and vitality. We were blessed with good health. Now as we grew older, slowly we learn about reality. We learn about our limitations and suddenly realize that childhood was way different. We now start to work to earn money in order to survive. Some even over work to achieve wealth and as a result, health is sacrificed. We get sick and spend all the money we have hardly earned just to save our health.
In summary, we fail to balance life. When we are young we have all the health we need but as we grow older we will be having all the wealth we need, but begin to forget and lose our health on the way. This should not be the case. We must learn how to balance health and wealth. We work so hard that we have already forgotten about the good things in life and what really matters. That is why it is really very important to know how to balance health and wealth, since too much or too little of anything will never ever do anyone any good. Life is all about a matter of balance and moderation.
To live life happily to its fullest is to know how to balance the most important things in life such as health and wealth.
