in the world and antioxidants are important because they fight excess free radicals in the body (caused by car pollution, diet, etc.). Excess free radicals can cause premature aging, heart disease, cancer, inflammation, arthritis, osteoporosis, wrinkles, DNA damage (from pollution, toxic exposures, diet, etc.) and other health challenges. Antioxidants help protect the cells in your body from damage that can potentially set the stage for many health problems including blood vessel damage that contributes to heart disease. Goji berries contain not only high amounts of vitamins and minerals but also have many unique phytonutrients, polysaccharides, phenolics and other unique natural compounds not found in most foods. For example, they contain an antioxidant called zeaxanthin, which can contribute to eye and skin health, compounds to boost immunity and promote healthy linings of the urinary, intestinal & respiratory tracts, lower blood sugar and even prevent certain types of cancers.

Grape Tomatoes: A great source of a micro-nutrient called lycopene. Diets high in lycopene can decrease the risk of a heart attack by as much as 50%, according to studies. There’s also evidence that lycopene is linked to lower cancer rates. In fact,

there’s a study which shows that eating 7 servings or more, per week of tomatoes can reduce your risk of developing certain cancers such as rectal, stomach and colon cancers by as much as 60%. Tomatoes also contain a type of beneficial phytonutrients called saponins, which is one the things which give tomatoes a slightly bitter taste, and when inside us, saponins act like antioxidants (anti-aging compounds). Saponins have been shown to protect again breast, prostate and other cancers and can also help to reduce cholesterol levels in the blood by interfering with its re-absorption. Also, this “interfering” with cholesterol is what some studies have shown with regards to saponins’ ability to prevent cancer. Cancer loves to feed on cholesterol in our bodies (that’s one potential reason for higher cancer rates in populations consuming cholesterol-rich Western diets) but saponins are able to react with the cholesterol which cancer feeds on thus limiting cancer’s potential growth and viability.
