[Figure1]

Many health groups recommend that we consume a long list of nutrients throughout our daily lives. Antioxidants should be added to that list.  Although they aren’t well known, antioxidants are found in many common foods and very important to our health

 Creative Applications

  1. Find some foods or drinks that have antioxidants in them.
  2. What is the chemical composition of an antioxidant? (Search for Vitamin E) How do they help protect the body? (Hint: free radicals)

  3. Why do some athletes consume antioxidant-rich food after excercising? 
  4. Besides eating them after you excercise, what are other uses of eating antioxidants?
