Antioxidant Therapy comes in the form of one of the highest rated fruits called the Goji Berry. Goji berries grow on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and in the Himalyas in Tibet. Goji berries are usually found dried. They are shriveled red berries that look like red raisins. Goji berries have been used for 6,000 years by herbalists in China, Tibet and India to protect the liver, help eyesight, strengthen the legs, boost immune function, improve circulation, and promote longevity. A very important factor in Antioxidant Therapy.
Another food that is also high in antioxidants and important to Antioxidant Therapy is the Mangosteen. The mangosteen is a tropical evergreen tree believed to have originated in the Sunda Islands and Moluccas. The rind of the edible fruit is deep reddish purple when ripe. The fragrant flesh is sweet and creamy, citrusy with some peach flavor. In Asia, the mangosteen fruit is known as the Queen of Fruits. The mangosteen also has a high ORAC rating making it extremely valuable in Antioxidant Therapy.
The Antioxidant Therapy value of Pomegranates is extremely high. The pomegranate also has a high ORAC rating. It is native from Iran to the Himalayas in northern India and was cultivated and naturalized over the whole Mediterranean region since ancient times. It is widely cultivated throughout India and the drier parts of southeast Asia, Malaya, and the East Indies and tropical Africa. The tree was introduced into California by Spanish settlers in the later 1700's.
The potential involvement of free radical or oxidative damagein the pathogenesis of human disease has received an enormousamount of study in the last decade.1-4 Free radicals are atomsor molecules with unpaired electrons in their outer orbits,making them highly reactive with macromolecular structures,leading to cellular injury and homeostatic disruption. Freeradicals are produced as a byproduct of normal metabolism, andendogenous mechanisms exist to reduce their formation or enhancetheir inactivation.5-6balance in favor of the former may be a potential fundamentalmechanism of human disease. A large body of evidence supportsthe concept that increased production of free radicals causesor accentuates neuronal injury and leads to disease, and thisevidence has recently been reviewed by ourselves and others.7-9Therapy aimed at boosting antioxidant defenses or reducing pro-oxidantproduction with free radical scavengers or antioxidants maybe efficacious in preventing, ameliorating, or arresting manyneurologic diseases. This approach is receiving increasing attentionin clinical neurology both in large randomized controlled trialsin common disorders, such as stroke and Parkinson disease, andin individual patients with rarer conditions, such as mitochondrialdisorders. Moreover, widespread use of over-the-counter antioxidantsand dietary supplements with presumed antioxidant ingredientshas placed increasing pressure on physicians to be aware ofdata regarding the use of antioxidants as therapeutic agents.This review will summarize the main trials of antioxidant therapiesin neurologic disorders and discuss methodological issues pertainingto these and future studies.
