Does bottled lipton diet green tea citrus have a good source of antioxidants like i've read?

Does bottled lipton diet green tea citrus have a good source of antioxidants like i've read?

Probably not: Once the tea is mixed with water, the antioxidants start to break down. By the time the product gets from where it was first mixed to when you drink it could be weeks or months. The antioxidants are not likely going to be viable for that length of time. Raw fruits and vegetables are probably your best bet. Some supplements like astaxanthin and curcumin may help. ...Read more

What is the purpose of a phytonutrient? Are they mainly antioxidants? I read olive fruit's hydroxytyrosol has the highest orac of antioxidants.

Beware of salesmen: People will try to sell anything, so watch out for products that claim to do beneficial things in lab studies, animal studies, very small studies, or studies that are not done in people like you. A phytonutrient is a plant-derived compound (chemical, protein, material) found to have positive health effects... But most are not studied, purified, nor quantified like real medicines have to be. ...Read more

There are a lot of purported health benefits associated with eating cacao or cacao nibs. I found these whole cacao beans at the grocery store. Why should I eat these as opposed to tastier chocolate?

There are a lot of purported health benefits associated with eating cacao or cacao nibs. I found these whole cacao beans at the grocery store. Why should I eat these as opposed to tastier chocolate?

to avoid sugar: Cacao has many proven health benefits but is bitter. Chocolate is basically cacao with added sugar. Sugar is toxic with many proven detriments. Thus, with cacao nibs you get all of the benefits without the downside of sugar. However, a good compromise is dark chocolate- at least 70% cocoa solids, but one with 85-90% cocoa solids is even better. See http://bit.Ly/1fnptkt ; http://bit.Ly/1gxkzhb. ...Read more
