In this day and age, we all know that Healthy looking skin starts from the inside, and a balanced nutrition filled with antioxidants, is the best way to achieve the skin you have always wanted. Antioxidants, serve to deactivate certain particles called free radicals. In humans, free radicals usually come in the form of O2, the oxygen molecule. The oxygen molecule wants to be oxidized, and this oxidation process can sometimes affect our health and our Skin. Scientists have determined that consuming antioxidants as part of a healthful diet can assist in regulating the balance between free radicals and antioxidants, thereby reducing the risk of diseases and improving our skin. It is also known, amongst world researchers, that the highest natural known source of antioxidants is found in a red berry called the Goji Berry which comes from the highest and purest mountains in the world, the Himalaya Mountains of Tibet.
