(NaturalHealth365) Like a battery – you need to be charged up every day. At the atomic level, our bodies run through an electrical energy system. The coordinated flow of this electrical energy – at all times – is what makes up the presence of life.
Lifestyle habits that add voltage to our system help sustain the flow of energy while habits that subtract voltage reduce the presence of life. Antioxidants are free electrons that enhance our energy and protect us against inflammatory damage.
Your body is made up of 75 trillion cells that operate in synchrony to keep your body breathing, healing, and living every single day. Each of these cells acts as a little energy cranking out energy in the form of a biological unit called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
The best sources of energy for every cell in our body
The solar power of the sun charges most all life on earth and directly and indirectly charges our bodies. The grassy fields, the trees, the seawater algae and the herbs are living agents that harvest the sun’s light through the process of photosynthesis. When we, or any other animal, consume these foods we take in the sun’s energy as electrons. These electrons are then used to produce ATP.
As we increase the amount of electrons through our diet and lifestyle, we build an ATP surplus and a stronger life force. This electron flow improves the process of healing, remodeling and rejuvenating within the body.
Unfortunately, in our society today, most individuals are deficient in electrons and produce ‘dirty’ energy. Dirty energy production creates ATP but also a high level of waste in the form of free radical particles.
When these free radicals are able to run rampant in our bodies they restrict our life force and accelerate aging and tissue degeneration.
Clean energy sources are rich in antioxidants
Antioxidants act to neutralize these dangerous free radicals and bring balance to the body. Clean energy sources are rich in trace minerals, electrolytes and antioxidants and produce very little free radicals. The net effect of this energy source is a surplus of antioxidants to protect the body from future stresses.
Naturally, certain lifestyle habits produce antioxidant rich clean energy while others produce free radical loaded dirty energy.
The most powerful sources of clean energy include raw, organic vegetables and superfood extracts. Most people know that raw fruits and vegetables are good for health – however they misapply these natural nutritional powerhouses.
Fruit contains high levels of fructose so it is best to limit fruit consumption and use fruits that are low glycemic such as berries, avocados, citrus fruits and granny smith apples. Some vegetables are digested better, in a raw form, while others are best marinated, lightly steamed or sautéed.
The veggies that are best in the raw form include celery, carrots, cucumbers, spinach, bok choy, bell peppers, romaine lettuce, parsley, cilantro, radishes, snap peas and beets. The veggies that have a challenging outer cellulose layer are much more bioavailable when they are lightly steamed or marinated in lemon or apple cider vinegar. This would include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collard greens, onions, cabbage, watercress, brussell sprouts and asparagus.
Amazing superfood extracts for everyday consumption
Superfood extracts that provide mega-doses of antioxidants include organic herbal teas and water infusions. These drinks have no sweeteners or calories and include mega doses of high powered nutrients. Boiling water can impact some of the antioxidant content of the tea – so be sure to keep the water temperature low.
Infused drinks with clean spring water and antioxidant-rich superfood extracts such as green coffee bean extract, cinnamon, cacao, African mango, Indian Gooseberry, raw veggies and unique herbs are a powerful inclusion to supercharge the body.
