In recent history the words, “high in antioxidants” started to appear on food labels left and right. But what does that mean? What is considered high and why is it important to have antioxidants and what do they do? Where should they get antioxidants?
Lindsey Getz gives people a very good first few steps into the understanding of antioxidants in her article in Today’s Dietitian. She provides lists of where to find which antioxidants, talks about supplementation, and even gives a very refreshing opinion about the fact that scientist don’t have a complete understanding of all of them or what they do so the science will continue to change with time.
