Fruit antioxidants are important because during photosynthesis, a huge number of free radicals are produced. Plants need strong antioxidants to protect against cellular damage by these free radicals. Antioxidant plant pigments, primarily carotenoids and flavonoids, provide most of this protection.
Research has shown that human ingestion of these compounds results in similar protection.
Research has also shown that antioxidants work synergistically and are far more effective when a spectrum of fruits is ingested. The powerful health benefits of real berries are attributed to high levels of plant compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols are powerful flavonoid antioxidants which may protect us against the damaging effects of chronic diseases associated with aging by inhibiting free radicals.
Natural plant polyphenols and phytochemicals are responsible for the many colors of vegetables, fruits and
flowers. Bright colors are nature’s way of indicating health potential. Anthocyanins, Proanthocyanins, Ellagic Acid, Chlorogenic Acid, Resveratrol and Quinic Acid are all found in VitaBerry.
