People eat Antioxidant foods to stay healthy…but some people are trying to prevent and treat disease too.

Antioxidant supplements–just for their anti-rusting effects–do not appear to be as effective as food.

Which foods are the best antioxidants?

According to a new Norweigan/American scientific assessment, gram for gram, they’re actually herbs and spices.

In cooking, herbs are leaves, and spices are everything else…stems, flower buds, seeds, bark, root.

The top 5 foods with the highest antioxidant content (125.5 millimoles per 100 grams) are cloves, oregano leaf, ginger, cinnamon and turmeric.

But based on typical serving size, top ranked were “blackberries, walnuts, strawberries, artichokes, cranberries, brewed coffee, raspberries, pecans, blueberries, ground cloves, grape juice, and unsweetened baking chocolate.”

Good news…recently, antioxidant diets and the different polyphenols in strawberries appear to be acting in different parts of the brain in Alzheimers to help with memory.
