I think by now everyone has heard of antioxidants and that they are good for you, right? But do you know WHY you need them? Well, antioxidants protect our cells from oxidative stress. In technical terms, oxidative stress is an imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species and our body's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates OR to repair the resulting damage. Peroxides and free radicals result causing damage to all components of a cell (including proteins and lipids, or fats) and our DNA.
To put is simply, these reactive oxygen species damage our cells, which causes aging. We sort of "rust" from the inside. If you see rust on a car, that's a form of oxidative stress. When an apple, that is cut in half, starts to turn brown, that's oxidative stress.
So, antioxidants are pretty important for the function, health and longevity of our body! We can't make antioxidants, we have to consume them.
NingXia Red can help us get those very important antioxidants! It's made from the NingXia Wolfberry, which comes from a very special place in China. There is no other place like it on earth! Here is where you can read more about it: The Story of NingXia Red.
