New USDA study reveals a list of food high in antioxidants.

Many people are looking for a source of food high in antioxidants. We all are aware that we need to get more vitamins and antioxidants in our diet. On June 09, 2004, a research paper was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. In this study, 100 different foods were researched to discover which foods are high in antioxidants. The results may be a bit surprising.

Nature has provided us with some perfect foods for combating free radicals. These are molecules that are created as a result of stress in our bodies (chemicals, pollution, noise, bad emotions, poisons, etc) and as a result of normal body functions. Antioxidants such as vitamins E and C and some minerals like Selenium combine with the free radical in such as way as to neutralize them. The more antioxidants, the theory is, the better we can adapt to stresses on the body. In the study foods in the categories of fruits, vegetables, nuts and spices were researched. Can you guess which foods are high in antioxidants?

The study found that in the fruit category, cranberries, blueberries, and blackberries took top honors. For vegetables, beans, artichokes and Russet potatoes where the best sources of antioxidants. In the nut group, pecans, walnuts and hazelnuts were ranked highest. Finally, in the spice category, ground cloves, ground cinnamon and oregano had the highest concentrations. Now you can use this knowledge to add some of these antioxidant rich foods to your diet.
