12 Foods Rich In Antioxidants

BY JILL HARNESS 

Antioxidants are molecules that inhibit the oxidation of other molecules and thus, prevent free-radicals, which cause damage to cells. For the non-scientists, that means that antioxidants are good for you because they can help slow down the aging process and may even help prevent cancer and heart disease.

Of course, the best thing about antioxidants is that they are easy to get in a healthy diet. In fact, many delicious natural foods are loaded with the cancer-fighters, including walnuts, berries, artichokes, cherries, pecans, cloves, peaches and broccoli.

These foods are also loaded with other health benefits -for example, artichokes are high in fiber, vitamin C, folic acid, potasium and magnesium. Peaches are loaded with beta caroten, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, calcium, potasium, magnesium and phosphorus. With so many health benefits, you might want to start eating these 12 antioxidant-laden foods religiously.
