Exercise is great and it has been said if we could put exercise in a pill it would be a wonder drug! However, there are some negatives associated with too much exercise including lack of recovery, risk of injury and increased free radical activity associated with oxidation.

Exercise is only one of many causes of increased free radicals in the body. Others include:
The following have been associated with an over-production of free radicals:
- POLYUNSATURATED FAT

- MENTAL DISTRESS
- ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION
- EXCESSIVE SUNLIGHT EXPOSURE
- CHEMOTHERAPY AND RADIATION
Increase your intake of foods high on the ORAC Scale (more about the ORAC Scale can be found in next weeks post.. but for now you should know that the longest living people in the world have a very high intake of anti-oxidants, measured as over 6000 ORAC units a day.
I recommend you consider adding CherryActive Concentrate to your daily supplement. It is extraordinarily high at 8260 ORAC units per 30ml serving. This amount is equal to the anti oxidant level of about 20 portions of fruit and vegetables.
