Should You Take Antioxidants?
Published: 03/30/2013

Eating right, getting regular exercise and managing stress are all vital to achieving optimum health, but sometimes these just aren’t enough. While vitamins and supplements shouldn’t be taken as substitutes for a healthy diet, they can be beneficial by filling in any gaps. A high-quality antioxidant can help address the damage caused by free radicals, boost immunity, help reduce stress-related fatigue, and increase musculoskeletal and skin integrity. In short, antioxidants can provide an extra layer of protection for your health.

Look for an antioxidant formula that provides vitamin E as mixed carotenoids, selenium and coenzyme Q10. Consider consulting the Vitamin Advisor for a free, personalized supplement recommendation.
