Oxidative stress is the imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects by neutralizing them with antioxidants. Understanding oxidative stress is the #1 factor I work with my clients on to help minimize its harmful effects with diet. As a middle age athlete, I found I could personally no longer mask the effects of oxidative stress and simply “push through” hard exercise. Oxidative stress can limit your athletic potential, your longevity and your quality of life.
Oxidative stress can occur from a lack of fruits and vegetables, poor overall diet, mental stress, alcohol, physical stress and hard exercise, and pollutants in the air. Oxidative stress is the root of all disease. Its effects are far reaching and have been shown to be triggers for diseases of the brain (Alzheimer’s Disease, MS, ALS, OCD, ADHD, migraines, and cancer) and immune system disorders (auto-immune disorders, lupus, chronic inflammation, colds and flu). Oxidative stress has also been linked to diabetes, chronic fatigue, arthritis, poor cardiovascular health, lung disease, and poor eye health. In other words, oxidative stress can negatively affect every system in our bodies.
As I have reached middle-age and I see the illnesses of friends and people in my community and their family members, I have personally made it a life mission to educate as many people as I can personally to help prevent these often unnecessary conditions and diseases by targeting the #1 factor and cause of these disorders….our diets.
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables (not multi-vitamins which have been shown to do more harm than good in many studies) has been shown to neutralize the effects of oxidative stress. Our dietary recommendations focus on clean, whole foods and eating a minimum of 7-13 servings of fruits and vegetables daily (16-18 for athletes).
For those of you who do not eat 7-13 servings of fruits and vegetables daily (16-18 for athletes), I recommend Juice Plus+ to all my clients, friends, family members, and anybody who will listen. After reviewing well over 50 “product” lines, Juice Plus+ is the only product on the market I am comfortable using personally and giving to my family. Juice Plus+ has over 35 clinical studies that have been published in top peer-reviewed medical journals and were completed at leading research institutes such as Yale and the MD Anderson Cancer Institute. All research is randomized, double blind, and placebo controlled…the top form of research used in a laboratory.
Juice Plus+ has been shown to be 100% bioavailable(no urine discoloration) and most importantly to me has been shown to neutralize oxidative stress in four clinical studies.
The Tower Garden is an aeroponic system that is 100% organic and grows 28 plants. It takes up merely 3 square feet and can be grown indoors. It uses significantly less water than a traditional garden and pays for itself within 6 months in the growing season giving you 30% more yield than your current garden. It is also widely know that children who grow their own fruits and vegetables will eat more of them.
