Protect your body from the damage caused by running with these antioxidant-packed superfoods
Wholegrain black rice is chock-full of body-repairing anthocyanins, according to scientists at Louisiana State University Agricultural Centre, US. "These are the same powerful antioxidants found in blueberries and blackberries that have been shown to offer protection from various health threats including cancer and heart disease," says Gidus. Hang your head in shame, Mr Egg-Fried. Power up: Combine cooked black rice (Infinity Organic Black Rice, £3.09 for 500g from greenlife.co.uk) with radish, carrot and red pepper, then drizzle with sesame oil for a tasty salad.
You've misread the article Chris,
Most antioxidants will be found in fresh fruit and veg (as it says) but this just suggests some other foods the don't fall into this category.
I get plenty of lentils but not much of the other stuff! Still I do eat plenty of fruit and veg so I hope I am covered. Not nice to think of those bloody free radicals ruining my temple .
Thanks for the article.
