Antioxidents--what are they and where do I get them?!

Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Nicholas Perricone are two of the country's leading advisors in health and beauty.

Both of them recommend high-antioxidant superfruits for their skin cell-protective properties.

Antioxidants are the body's only way to combat the harmful oxidative effects of pollutants and sun damage at the cellular level.

Their advice is to eat plenty of "superfruits" with rich, dark and bright colors. The superfruits are known to have a high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).

Two of the highest ORAC superfruits are blueberries and acai berries. This smoothie combines them both into a single, nutrient-balanced and delicious drink that is a great breakfast or even a post-workout meal replacement.

I have to share with you a wonderful moment I had today. I have been speaking with a co-worker for a few weeks about her problems at home. She's been depressed a lot. I told her to turn on klove to listen to the words. I told her how it brings me peace when I'm having problems. Well, today she found out that she was going to get some help with some problems she's been having with her farm. she actually stopped for a moment and thanked god for helping her. I was so glad that she realized that god was on her shoulder, helping her.

I heard you talking today about Anitoxidants and how important they are in fighting free radicals...and YES they are very important. It  is also very important to fight these free radicals because they lead to oxidative stress which has been proven to lead to over 200 dieseases.   I really feel convicted to make sure you also knew that current scientific studies show that your body cannot ingest enough "direct" antioxidants through food, juices or vitamins to equal the number of free radicals your body makes every day....and that there is now a Break through in Science that is an ALL totally Natural supplement you can take that actually signals your body to produce its OWN antioxidant enzymes which can eliminate free radicals expontentially better than traditional antioxidants. In addition, while only one "direct" antioxidant can fight one free radical before it is used up, your body's own free-radical-fighting enzymes can each eliminate up to one million moleculues a second without being used up in the process. The antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase and catalase)are our bodies own free-radical-fighting enzymes.. in which Superoxide dismutase was co-discovered by Dr. McCord whom has 40 years of science  backing him in the study of antioxidants and the impact of the human body. This truely is an amazing breakthrough and I believe everyone should know about it. Dr.Joe McCord is the doctor... Protandim is the product... Lifevantage is the company! I would love for everyone to really see this for themselves..thank you and God Bless!

Hello! My name is Dr Ronald H Medlock (Dr Ron). I want to say I am a new fan and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE everything you are doing. I am also a HUGE fan of Tony Horton and his P-90 program, I have had it since it first came out and use it all the time in my practice and workouts.  I am a 'truck stop' doc doing DMV exams and DOT drug testing in the greater Sacramento Area and attend Bayside Christian Church in Granite Bay, CA (Lincoln Brewster's church and Pastor Ray). Anyhow, I have been listening to your show about health and excersise. I know God has called me into a ministry of health naturally... I had to chime in a bit and say that for the past 4 years I have been doing exams for truck drivers...and the findings I have are astonishing. I see that most health issues are due to mental stress combined with a diet high in what i call caffeine, nicotine, sugars, alcohol and chemical additives. Its whats fueling America, not just our Truck drivers, but our youth as well. I love the info on antioxidants and am a huge believer in high antioxidant meals and supplements to reverse the aging and degenerative changes we see. I have come across inofrmation on a NEW supplemet that comes from the KonaRed coffee cherry and would love to share it! It is idependantly tested to have the highest antioxidant ORAC score i have yet to find. (Brunswick lab tested) and there is even ongoing clinical trails taking place currently. I havew done my research and found a company just 4 months old that is using this in a NEW energy drink called Xowii. It rivals other energy drinks only its actually healthy and has 5,734 ORAC antioxidants per 8 oz can and tastes awesome! I would love to share this with K-Love listeners and show people how they can get some! I have prayed very hard over this and am very excited to share it! you can call me any time at 916-241-5508. or go to my web site at I sincerely hope to hear from you about this. My ministry is in the health and wellness of all naturally. "just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member BELONGS to all others" (Romans 12:4-5)... I want to see ALL healthy in life, please hep me spread my message of health...

Hi Scott and Kelli. I have strugled with my weight for about 7 years now. Shortly after I got married I started gaining weight. I went from 116 to 200 in about 1 year.About 4 years ago I started counting calories and did lose down to 150 but things would happen to cause me to start gaining again. Ever since I've been on a rollercoster with my weight. At 200lbs I'm a few pounds away from being consider morbidly obiece. My weight causes a lot of health problems. One thing that did happen that my weight played a factor in was a miscarriage of twins. My docter says I need to loose between 45 to 70lbs in order to be at a safe weight for pregnuncy and I so despretly want children. I need help. Nothings working for me. Thank you and God bless

Hey scott and kelli
my mom is into eating healthy, so naturally i hear quite a bit about it, not that i mind though.  anyway, green tea is definately a tremendous source of antioxidants, but NOT tea such a Arizona or Snapple.  i love both, but they contain more harmful ingredients thatn helpful...
