Caffeine A Healthy Antioxidant?

Caffeine A Healthy Antioxidant? Although researchers aren't sure exactly how it works as a scavenger of oxygenated free radicals, a study published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B suggests that caffeine might be one of the richest sources of healthy antioxidants in the average person's diet.

Free radicals are released as your metabolism increases with exercise or stress. Pollution and other toxins can also elevate levels of free radicals. Caffeine is consumed by about 90% of Americans in the form of coffee, tea, cocoa and other foods. It could be a healthier habit than many people think.

True Strength Moment: An 8 ounce cup of coffee amounts to about 90 milligrams of caffeine.
