What are antioxidants & how do they impact inflammation in the body?

Have you heard a lot about the benefits of antioxidants over the past few years, but may not be exactly clear on what they are or what they do? You're not alone - but we're here to help. Most simply, antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your body.

Easy enough. But what are free radicals and why should you care? Free radicals are the compounds at the heart of what causes our bodies natural inflammatory response. When the body detects higher-than-normal levels of free radicals, it triggers an inflammatory response to fight these free radicals - increasing production of white blood cells, immune cells and cytokines to bring the body back to health. At high levels, they can lead to discomfort, feeling sluggish or irritable, and have been linked to various illnesses and diseases.

Tips to Reduce Inflammation

Stay active

Regular exercise is essential to maintaining overall health and wellness. But that doesn't mean you need to become a bodybuilder to reap the anti-inflammatory benefits. According to a 2017 study, just 20 minutes of movement reduces inflammatory blood markers. So whether it's walking your dog each morning or even a stroll around the block at lunch or after dinner, try to aim for at least 20 minutes of movement as often as you can to keep free radicals at bay.

Change your diet

What you put in your body matters. And while that may seem like an obvious statement, when it comes to inflammation, specific foods can really make an impact on the way your body feels and functions.

Manage your stress

Like sleep, stress levels seriously impact the way your body feels and functions. High cortisol levels are known to trigger inflammatory responses within the body which, if left untreated, can cannibalize any anti-inflammatory efforts you're adopting into your daily lifestyle. To keep stress levels in check, try incorporating 10 minutes of daily meditation, exercise or even just catching up with a friend. PS, CBD can also help.

Add in antioxidant supplements & boosters

While all of these lifestyle improvements are easy to say, real life execution is a bit trickier. Let's face it, sometimes life gets in the way of the things we need to do to maintain good health. If you're having trouble finding the time and resources to make some of these lifestyle changes, it's okay to seek a little extra support. Incorporating supplements packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients like Turmeric, DHA, Capsaicin (and even CBD) are a great way to keep your free radical levels in check.
