Get Your Delicious Antioxidants Here!

Every day our bodies produce substances called free radicals; over time, the damage they do to our healthy cells contributes to aging and chronic diseases like heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes and cancers. 

Free radicals are a result of normal body functions directly related to our diet, lifestyle and environment. The good news: good nutrition — including plenty of antioxidants (nutrients like vitamins A, C and E, selenium, carotenoids and flavonoids) — can help neutralize their effects and reduce the damage.

More good news: Colorful fruits and veggies are packed with antioxidant compounds! The more vibrant the color, the more antioxidants wait inside. Eat a variety of antioxidant-rich foods to get the full benefit of each — that’s where “eat a rainbow” comes from.
 

Greens like spinach, kale and chard are packed with vitamins A and E, and carotenoids like lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene to support your immune system. Our organic baby versions are washed and ready to use — no wonder they’re called super foods!
 

Veggies like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are versatile recipe workhorses, packing plenty of antioxidants into crunchy, colorful and delicious packages — enjoy them raw in salads and snacks, or roasted in the oven for deeper, richer flavor.
 

Almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are rich in vitamin E (among other nutrients) — a fun, crunchy way to add antioxidants to your diet.
 

Who said good nutrition can’t be a sweet deal? Vibrant berries — like these beautiful blueberries, cranberries and strawberries — signal vitamins and antioxidants ready to rock!
