It is for the saturation of the body with antioxidants, the Rasayana method and vitamin Ayurvedic complexes exist. Ayurveda has known for a long time it explains that to be healthy the body needs to be helped to fight free radicals.
All living organisms, including humans, use oxygen in the metabolic process – this is the main oxidant. With his participation, chemical reactions take place, during which proteins, fats, carbohydrates are absorbed.
That is, the energy that we need for life is produced. Sometimes, during the oxidation process, free oxygen atoms remain unbound with any other molecules – they are called free radicals.
They are very aggressive, they always strive to react with other molecules, and since there are no free molecules for them, they try to tear off a pair for themselves from another compound, for this they penetrate all the cells of the body and destroy them.
What is an antioxidant good for?
Antioxidants are those substances that are designed to balance the oxidative process, suppress the appearance and growth of free radicals. They stop chain reactions, remove free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidants.
Today it is a recognized fact that most diseases result from an imbalance between the formation and neutralization of free radicals. If the imbalance is corrected and the body’s defense mechanisms are strengthened through proper nutrition and the use of foods with vitamins, then the body has the strength to resist disease.
Free radicals and antioxidants are balanced in the body of healthy people. In pathological conditions such as diabetes, for example, and in critically ill patients, antioxidant levels are below normal. In such cases, antioxidant supplements should be taken.
They should also be taken as a preventive measure against certain diseases, such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, myocardial infarction, cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation, and stroke. The best decision – Eat enough antioxidant-rich foods and herbs regularly.
What ayurvedic herbs are high in antioxidants?
Herbs like Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia), amla (Indian gooseberry), haritaki, ashwagandha, turmeric are famous for their antioxidant properties in Ayurveda. There are special Ayurvedic mixtures rich in antioxidants – Chavanprash Rasayana, Brahmarasayanam, Narasimha Rasayana, etc.
These drugs improve metabolism and help to saturate the tissues of the body with useful elements. As a result, immunity improves, the body rejuvenates.
The variety of antioxidants present in Rasayana complexes will get rid of free radicals and help remove oxidative stress from our body. It is almost impossible to get an overdose of any vitamins or minerals using these mixtures.
Why Antioxidants are Important leaders?
- Vitamin P (as dihydroquercetin): A powerful antioxidant that prevents the fragility of blood vessels, enhances the effect of ascorbic acid, regenerates tissues, enhances the microcirculation of fluids.
- Vitamin C: It is necessary for the body to maintain normal levels of folate and hemoglobin. Helps the immune system to cope with the body’s defense functions.
- Vitamin A: In the form of carotenoids or retinol. Reduces the risk of developing cancer, protects against blindness-causing macular degeneration of the retina.
- Vitamin E: Its action is aimed at preventing the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids by radicals in cell membranes. Promotes the absorption of other vitamins, as well as better use of proteins by the body. reduces the risk of blood clots, making it a good tool for the prevention of thrombophlebitis and atherosclerosis. In the treatment of cancer, radiation, and chemotherapy soften their effects on the body.
