Free radicals are unstable molecules created during a cell’s normal processes. They can damage cells, and they’re linked to cardiovascular disease, loss of skin elasticity, changes in hair texture, hair loss, and more.

Antioxidants prevent or reduce damage caused by free radicals by stabilizing them. Fight free radicals with these easy tips for increasing your daily antioxidant intake.

1. Add Cooked Tomatoes to Soups, Stews, and Sauces

Tomatoes contain lycopene, a potent antioxidant. Cooking tomatoes increases their lycopene content, making cooked tomatoes a better source of antioxidants than uncooked tomatoes.

Tomato packs rich flavor into soups, stews, and sauces. Juice tomatoes with the Ceado Fruit and Vegetable Juicer ES500, then add the puree to your favorite recipes for a savory, creamy source of lycopene.

2. Drink Citrus Juices

Another easy tip for increasing your daily antioxidant intake is to drink citrus juices. While orange contains the most vitamin C, all citrus is an excellent source of this powerful antioxidant.

Juicernet’s automatic citrus juicers effortlessly extract juice from oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit. Our citrus juicers obtain the highest amount of juice per fruit. Depending on your model, the juicer can fulfill other tasks like adjusting the pulp content and keeping the bitter rind out of the juice.

3. Juice Whole Apples

Apples contain antioxidants called phytochemicals. Enjoy classic sweet and tart apple juice or fragrant, spiced cider. You can also use apple juice in soups, such as butternut squash soup, or to make sauces that pair well with savory dishes.

Juicing whole apples gives you the most antioxidants. Apple skin contains antioxidants and fiber, potassium, and calcium. Juicernet’s juicers can process whole fruits and vegetables in moments, reducing preparation time and yielding a highly nutritious product.

4. Add Carrots to Dishes and Drinks

Finally, carrots are a delicious source of antioxidants. They’re also versatile root vegetables—you can add carrot juice to savory or sweet dishes and drinks.

Juicernet carries many models of juicing equipment that can efficiently process whole carrots. Other features your juicer might have include magnetic parts for easy removal and cleaning and an enhanced feed chute for increasing the amount you can juice at once.
