So, what are red whole foods all about? Reds are loaded with antioxidants, but most notably lycopene (a carotenoid) and anthocyanins. Lycopene has been studied and shown to help fight a variety of cancers, help improve circulation, decrease high blood pressure, and reduce cholesterol and cardiovascular risk. You might have heard a lot about antioxidants, and we’re here to clear the air. Essentially, they are our bodyguards and protectors; they fight off free radicals. Free radicals can damage our healthy cells causing oxidative stress which may cause harm to our hormones, blood vessels, proteins, lipids, and genetic code; causing cancer, inflammation, pain, degenerative diseases, heart disease, and aging itself. Sounds scary, right? Better start downing those reds by the bucket full!
