Remember Independence Day? The film, starring Will Smith was about an alien invasion is about to destroy the human race on earth. In fact do not need to attack humans alien army. Every day of free radical substances lurk health of millions of people. Antioxidants contained in red fruit potent dispel the dangerous substances.
Papuans empirical experience provides strong evidence that the red fruit is very good for increasing stamina. That's thanks to the active role of the antioxidant beta-carotene, tocopherol, and vitamin C contained in Pandanus conoideus. Source of antioxidants is not only a monopoly of red fruit. Antioxidants can also be obtained through the daily consumption of fruits and vegetables. However, the antioxidant content of red fruits are superior to fruits and vegetables.
Red fruits contain beta-carotene three times higher than carrots. In fact, carrot is a vegetable with the highest levels of beta-carotene. Pandanaceae family members also contain alpha-tocopherol approximately 12-25 times higher than the avocado and spinach are the highest content of alpha-tokoferolnya in the fruit and vegetables. In addition to the vitamins in fruits of red 100% absorbable. Compare with vitamins from fruits and vegetables is only 40%.
Free radicalsThat's good news for Aryo, researchers in government agencies who have chronic cough. The intensity of the cough gets worse at night the day that it interferes with the break. 34-year-old man who is always in contact with chemicals that doctors diagnosed lung disorder caused by exposure to substances senobiotik (foreign) dangerous. He was given medication by a doctor immediately suppress cough. However, once the medicine runs out, cough recur.
Aryo finally tried to take some kind of herbs that he bought from sinse. The same money, the cough remains stubborn. That's when a friend suggested to take the red fruit oil. After 10 days of consumption, the cough gradually subsided. Now he is free from the pain that's annoying.
Besides Aryo, many professions are exposed to substances susceptible senobiotik. For example, factory workers, hospital staff, pharmacists, miners, mechanics, and traffic officers. Those familiar with the various forms of hazardous substances senobiotik, triggers a variety of degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Foreign substances can be hazardous chemicals, air pollution, and exposure to pathogenic microorganisms-bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
Senobiotik harmful substances that accumulate and lodged in the body making the body's cells undergo oxidative stress. As a result, decreased immune system and susceptible to disease. Efforts to minimize the risk of exposure to free radicals was not done. Starting from the use of protective masks, reducing and avoiding sources of pollution, consumption of fresh milk to detoxifying the body.
However, these efforts are less effective. The proof, the case workers who are sick due to poor working environments are still emerging. In 2006 the World Health Organization (WHO) reported 12-million people per year die from chronic lung disease. The fact that once seated chronic lung disease as a rank-six deaths due to environmental factors.
Free radicals are reactive oxygen compounds that can attack and damage lipids, proteins, and DNA. Many scientific research indicates oxidative damage from free radicals play a role in the pathogenesis of degenerative diseases. Among these cancers, diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, stroke, lung, periodontitis (inflammation of the connective tissue supporting the tooth root), accelerated aging, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease (progressive neurodegenerative disorders) shadowing workers.
AntioxidantsCertain organs in our body more susceptible to oxidative damage than other organs. For example, the brain is extremely sensitive to oxidative damage because kandunganasam-fatty acids are easily oxidized, very high, the use of oxygen in large quantities, and low levels of antioxidants. There are many scientific research that indicates these diseases can be prevented and even treated with antioxidants. That explains why the red-fruit rich in antioxidants tocopherol (vitamin E), beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A), and vitamin C may help boost immunity.
The results Yudhi et Handoko of Maranatha Christian University School of Medicine, London, in 2006, strengthening the evidence of the efficacy of red fruit to enhance the immune system effectively. They show a red fruit extracts contain compounds that function as macrofag activating factor (MAF). MAF is a compound that can activate macrophages function as the body's defense cells. Macrofay antigen takes the form of bacteria, viruses, or toxins.
Nutritionists estimate the daily requirement of vitamin A with beta-carotene intake of 4.5 mg, while the daily requirement of alpha-tocopherol ranged from 2.6 to 15.4 mg, and vitamin C ranges from 500-2000 mg / day. These needs can be met through daily consumption of fruits and vegetables and red fruit consumption of 1-2 tablespoons per day. (Ir Dr M.
