Let’s look at other antioxidant factors besides vitamins and mineral catalysts. You also need in you daily diet, antioxidants from Flavonoids such as quercitin. These are co-factors or synergists for antioxidant activity. Flavonoids belong to a bigger group called phytochemicals.
The word phytochemical is taken from the Greek word photon, meaning plant, or plant chemicals. Phytochemicals, also called Phytonutrients, are not vitamins, minerals or herbals. They are specific chemicals found naturally occurring in plants, which are healthful to you. Phytochemicals, such as Flavonoids and indoles, function as anti-oxidants and free radical scavengers to protect plants from highly reactive oxide radicals, sunlight, weather and viruses.
We are designed to benefit from eating plants that contain such disease fighting phytochemicals. They are abundant in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, brussel spouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale and turnip. They are found in smaller levels in many vegetables and fruits as well. This is why those vegetables are so highly recommended in our diet and are the basis for some nutritional supplements. Some Phytochemicals also help to detoxify your body.
