3 Ways to Keep Free Radicals at Bay

Ways to Prevent Free Radicals from Damaging Cells

Every day we are exposed to environmental toxins that wreak havoc on our bodies. Hearing the words “environmental toxin” may invoke a vision of a nuclear power plant or smoke-billowing factories when actually, they are present in our makeup, clothing, drinking water, and so much more.

We can do our part to limit our exposure by making more health-conscious choices, but the reality is, exposure itself is unavoidable. 

What Are Free Radicals?

Out of these environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke, pesticides, carcinogens, and more, free radicals emerge with a singular mission: to destroy your cells from the inside out.

Free radicals are highly reactive unstable molecules that wreak havoc on our bodies. They are generated as a result of these environmental toxins, causing oxidative degradation. Put simply, free radicals cause a host of diseases and accelerate aging. 

How can we fix or prevent this damage? One word: antioxidants. Antioxidants are chemicals that interact with and neutralize free radicals, preventing the damage they cause. They are known as radical scavengers that “hunt down” free radicals in an effort to promote health and longevity. 

3 Ways to Keep Free Radicals at Bay

It’s unfair that we can’t control the breadth of our exposure to deadly environmental toxins. However, the good news is we can consume more antioxidants which can mitigate the risk we take every day we decide to go out into the world, hop on a subway, or hail a taxi outside of an airport. Here are 3 ways to keep free radicals at bay.

  1. Eat antioxidant-rich foods. Good grub that contains antioxidants is ripe for the taking – literally. Fruits like blueberries, bananas, oranges, cranberries, blackcurrants, kiwi, mangoes, and strawberries are packed with antioxidants (and other health-boosting properties). Broccoli and spinach are great free-radical-zapping sides. Other foods include seafood and lean meat, also rich in zinc, are antioxidant powerhouses as well. 
  2. Opt for cleaner skin and beauty products. Beauty and skincare products have upward of 100 chemicals that have been linked to cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. Fragrance, a blanket term that covers a wide range of unnamed, undisclosed chemicals that could be harmful. Perfumes are a common ingredient that tops the list of some of the most popular brands. Companies can include harmful chemicals in their products under the guise of a “trade secrets.” Switch to cleaner products with brands that are transparent about their quality. Choose brands with sourcing standards is one easy way to avoid exposure to free radicals and minimize your toxic load. 
  3. At-home Glutathione IV Therapy. Glutathione is affectionately known as “the mother of all antioxidants” and is heralded for its anti-aging, metabolism-boosting, and cancer-preventing properties. Found in every cell in the body, Glutathione has many critical functions. Glutathione supports the immune system, and the forming sperm cells. It assists in creating DNA, assisting in the functioning of certain enzymes, regenerating vitamins C and E.

The benefits, innumerable and backed by science. It can be taken from the comfort of your own home with easily, quickly, and safely administered at-home injections. 

Your Potent Antioxidant Fix Awaits

While we cannot completely avoid exposure to the limitless environmental toxins in our midst, we can make health-conscious choices that limit our exposure. Glutathione is a free-radical-extinguishing titan – but because it is depleted little by little the more we encounter these toxins, many are turning to supplementation.
