Your master antioxidant, glutathione, is endogenous - meaning it’s not an antioxidant you take as a supplement, it’s one that your body makes (see more in our last post).
However, making sure you have enough isn’t just about eating the best building blocks of glutathione. Having enough glutathione is also about minimizing triggers for chronic inflammation and oxidative stress in the first place, and then giving your body a chance to manage its own antioxidant and anti-inflammatory responses.
One is an antioxidant and the other a mineral, but you won’t find either on a nutritional label. Why are these two so important? How do you eat to increase your levels and your oxidant-fighting capacity? Well let’s talk about it next!
Counting your macros - aka. your macronutrients carbs, fat, and protein - is all the rage these days. But if you’re not making sure you get your micronutrients too, you might not be getting the results you’re after. Let’s take the guesswork out of what to eat to support your body’s defenses so you can get to living your best life.
We know that nutrition plays a huge role in our health. Incorporating foods that improve redox status and reduce inflammation with antioxidant-rich foods or healthy fats is a great way to promote your health and support daily performance.
At some point in your life you probably have heard that berries are good for you, right? Yet, not all of them are equal and have the same medicinal power. There are more studies coming out on how berries support our health from different angles.In the last decade, researchers and scientists have created berry symposiums across the world, where they discuss their clinical data on how berries can positively affect our systems from our heart, stomach, brain, metabolism, and more.
