Much research has been done in the US which show that the antioxidants in fresh fruit and veg show promise as being very effective against the onset of major illness and improve your immune system and general well-being.
More good news is that the various antioxidants found in fruit and veg are starting to show that they may play a significant role in slowing the ageing process and reducing free radical damage, so damaging to your health.
