What are antioxidants? And why is it such a big deal? You often hear that antioxidants are important for good health and vitality. But how do they work?

Well firstly let’s look at what eating antioxidants does for your body… foods rich in antioxidants such as kale, red grapes,  spinach, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, beets and let’s not forget the yummy dark chocolate have amazing health benefits.
