Sunshine Heroes Whole Foods Antioxidant ensures that children receive the benefits of more fruits and vegetables. Modern diets often lack sufficient amounts of fruits, vegetables and other whole foods, making them low in essential nutrients and antioxidants needed for optimal health. Research shows the benefits of an antioxidant-rich diet. The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Sunshine Heroes Whole Foods Antioxidant offers the antioxidant power equivalent to two average servings of fruit or vegetables (based on ORAC values).
A healthy diet that includes whole foods provides antioxidants to counter the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are atoms that are missing an electron, making them highly unstable. Unstable free radicals attack nearby molecules, stealing an electron from them. This begins a destructive chain reaction, which can lead to the disruption of living cells. In addition to whole food sources of antioxidants and nutrients, Whole Foods Antioxidant soft chews provide vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin C for extra antioxidant protection and nutritional support.
