Anti-Aging Antioxidants - How Vitamins Can Defeat Age

By Tanya Turner

Antioxidant properties to prevent cancer are well known, but did you know that there are anti-aging antioxidants? We all want to feel and look young, for as long as possible and antioxidants can help to defeat age. Find out what are the most important antioxidants for antiaging.

Common mushrooms contain anti-aging antioxidants. According to the study by Penn State University eating ordinary white-bottom mushrooms regularly, can prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases, as well as have significant anti-aging effect. These mushrooms are an excellent source of ergothioneine, a powerful anti-aging antioxidant.

Ergothioneine and Free Radicals

Free radicals are one of the main causes for aging because they cause cell damage. Several types of antioxidants are effective to neutralize them. Ergothioneine is one of the best to fight free radicals that is why it is an important antioxidant for antiaging. Recently wheat germ was considered an essential source for this antioxidant, but apparently mushrooms contain twelve times more ergothioneine. So adding mushrooms to your salads or meat dishes can be a great source of anti-aging antioxidant.

Antiaging antioxidant supplements

You can find many antioxidant dietary supplements for anti-aging. A very popular one is Lifespan Extension Complex that contains 120 capsules of Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid as well as Bioperine. It claims to boost your immune system, give you additional energy and vitality. Its anti-aging formula is proven to reduce brown spots making your skin look younger. It is also claims to reduce deterioration of brain cells, which happens as we age.

Most anti-aging antioxidant supplements contain large doses of Vitamin E, ethoxyquin and BHT. While doctors still debate about the effect of Vitamin E on aging, the positive effects of ethoxyquin and BHT are proven.

You have to remember that it is best to consult your doctor before taking any anti-aging supplements. Even the greatest antioxidants can be toxic in large doses, and since most of them are not water soluble, you should never take too much.

Antioxidants for younger looking skin

The skin is what really gives your age away. And to keep it young and healthy looking, you don't need any special supplements. Natural antioxidants found in many foods, can help your skin look younger. While scientists are still not sure if Vitamin E has real effect on anti-aging, it is well known that this powerful antioxidant is beneficial for the skin. The same can be said about Vitamins A and C.

There are many antiaging creams with vitamins and antioxidants. But it is important to eat antioxidants, rather than just use creams with them. Most brightly colored fruits and berries contain antioxidants to prevent premature aging of your skin. Regularly include strawberries, blueberries, cherries, oranges, grapefruits and grape in your diet and you will see how healthy and bright your skin looks.
