to your well-being (Est. Since 2010)

Can YOU prevent health problems, cancer, disease, and illness
through healthy foods, fitness, and a more relaxed lifestyle?

Yes, you can stay younger and live longer: the science is in now.

One of the most amazing studies were conducted by Harvard research study in early 1990’s which showed how important antioxidants are to living cells and tissues in the human body.


Soon afterwards, extensive studies were conducted on antioxidants and secondly how groups of antioxidants work even better together, and are so much more effective in fighting cancer and beating free radicals.

What are antioxidants?

All living cells and tissues must have oxygen to stay alive. While oxygen is good for good living cells, it would ideal to deprive bad living cells (like cancer tumors) of oxygen in order to kill the cancer cells. While living cells use oxygen they do release small number of toxic oxygen by-product called, free radicals. These are atoms that are missing an electron. Antioxidants promote health cells and their abundance will protect living cells and tissues from oxidation which otherwise would promote disease and destroy living cells.

Why does this have anything to do with staying younger and living longer?

Scientists have released studies that suggest anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 (depending on diet, food preparation, and the amount of oily foods consumed per day) “free radicals” are attacking our living cells and tissues per each day.

To stay younger, feel younger, look younger and remain energetic all the way up to your 80’s, 90’s or even beyond, you want a diet filled with all the various groups of antioxidants, including Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, Vitamin E, Glutathione, Bioflavanoids, Lutein, Lycopene, Coenzyme Q10, Zinc, Copper, Managese, and Vitamin A.

How does this work?

The first line of defense in your body are antioxidants that are naturally produced to protect your body and keep you body strong. This first line of defense are: a) superoxidants (zinc, copper, manganese), b) catalase, c) glutatione (sulfer).

Then the second line of defense takes over to keep your living tissues strong and reproducing and replacing dead cells with new cells. These are Vitamin A, C, and E.

Finally the last line of defense are antioxidants from  carotenoids, bioflavonoids (yes that is why berries promote healthy cells), and coenzyme Q10.


So all the antioxidants work “together” to protect your body and keep living cells and tissues protected and new cells are created to replace old cells. You will remain younger looking and stronger.

So, sorry there is no magical pill or a latest invention that keeps people younger for longer and keeps them rejuvenated. It is your diet that can keep you healthy and young for much longer than you may expect.
There are some who believe that a few of the antioxidants are all the body needs. Well, this is based on incorrect understanding of how the body works.

Each of the above antioxidants can get oxidized and lose an electron and start attacking the body. So the solution is that by having all the different antioxidants groups in your body, other antioxidants will release an electron to re-activate the antioxidant that lost an electron. This is how your body stays younger and healthy and rebuilding itself and protecting itself from “free radicals”.

Having a diet filled with these everyday will keep your cells rejuvenated, young, strong, constantly reproducing and multiplying, and keeping you healthy and strong. One very essential addition to all of this, is regular exercise, at least walking 30 min per day, ideally twice a day, and you will stay relaxed and fighting every day to beat off “free radicals”.
