Tingkatkan Imuniti #6 : Antioxidants Food

Mahap la wey... lately ni mmg entry aku perihal kesihatan je kan. Matik la takde orang masuk baca dah. Eh. Tak kesah lah. Ada org baca ka, takda ka, menulis tetap menulis. Lagipun dah dapat info menarik, tempek la sini supaya takde la tercarik2 di kemudian hari pula kan.

Dah rupa healthy blog je dah blog aku ni.

Takpe lah. Sementelah masih ada lagi kesedaran dalam diri jadi kita tulis lah hal2 berkaitan kesihatan ni. Sebenarnya perihal kesihatan ni, nak tanak mmg kena cari artikel in English. Macam juicing tu. Nak carik yg melayu punya kemain payah. Sesilap terjumpa balik blog aku. Konon lah kan. Haha.
Tp kalo in English, memang la byk. Omputih mmg gemar juicing2 nih. Byk resepi juicing yg di jumpa. Best!

So, hari ni kita cakap pasal antioxidants lak. Mengapa antioxidants? Sbb makanan yg doc Hamid advise mostly aku baca mmg tinggi antioxidants. So, aku assume antioxidants relate dgn fertility. Google. So, jumpa artikel kat sini. Betul lah. Mmg ada kaitan. Mari tgk sket apa yg artikel tu kata.

Antioxidants are one of the most important components to having healthy fertility that every woman and man needs to focus on. Before we get started, there are two terms you will need to become familiar with:

Antioxidants
Antioxidants are a family of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that help to protect the body from the damage caused by free radicals.

Free Radicals
Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cell structures. In normal every day life free radicals are produced from the activity in our bodies (for example free radicals are made during energy production) but chemicals in our surrounding environment can also create free radicals. It is said that each cell in our body is attacked about 10,000 times a day by free radicals, accelerating the aging process. Antioxidants neutralize the free radicals, stopping further damage from happening and protecting the cells health. If you are not doing something to help protect your cells, this damage can add up.

How Antioxidants Work
Antioxidants work like a defense system, disarming free radicals. They are a kind of police force within the body. They “quench” free radicals wherever they are so they are not able to spread and cause damage to our cells. When an antioxidant finds a free radical it engulfs it and melds into its molecular structure. This creates a weakened free radical, not strong enough to do any harm. At this point that particular antioxidant is sacrificed unless its “sister” antioxidant comes along and revives it. I will go into further detail about this a little later as it is very important to know if you are using antioxidant therapies.

Why Antioxidants are important and necessary for healthy fertility 
So we now know how antioxidants and free radicals generally work, but now we are going to talk about how they affect fertility specifically. Everything in the body is made of cells that need to be protected from free radicals; simple as that. Not only are the ovum (egg) and sperm made up of cells which can be affected by free radical damage, so are the reproductive organs and glands that produce reproductive hormones. If these cells are less than optimal, the organs, ovum, eggs, etc. will not be functioning at their best.

Another thing to remember; when DNA is attacked, it can also be altered by free radicals. The DNA of both partners is the future blueprint for a child. Damaged DNA is known to cause miscarriages or birth defects/developmental problems for the future child. Studies have also shown a connection between oxidative stress caused from free radicals and male infertility. So, it is very important for both parents to be taking an antioxidant complex in the correct amounts. I will share with you the best antioxidant blend for fertility in a bit, but first lets take a look at which antioxidants are most important…

Bagus tu, dia bagitau makanan apa yg ada antioxidant beserta vitamin yg diperlukan.

Aku rasa selama ni mmg aku tak makan sgt menda2 ni. Sbb tu la badan pun tak immune. Tu lah... sbb tu nama diet ni "diet dah terhantuk baru terngadah". Haha.
Takpe lah. Belum lewat kot kan. Sekarang ni orang tanya "pantang lagi ke Da?" Aku jawab "takde pantang... jaga makan jer" Cewah! poyo sgt kan bunyi nya. Haha.
