Notes:

Despite a whole lot of studies there hasn’t been any data linking Antioxidant supplements to better heart health, decreased cancer rates, or slowed aging.

It’s now thought that free radicals aren’t as bad for us as we thought they were, they’re actually necessary for health body function, and our body has pretty good systems of regulating them.

However, these foods also contain Resveratrol, a molecule that can potentially activate sirtuins in the body, which is a protein that can help burn fat. There haven’t yet been enough good long term studies to determine if this could be beneficial for humans.
