Drinking the Right Drink: What You Need to Know About Beyonde
The phenomenon that is antioxidants have been around for quite a while. However, it was only recently that the fame of antioxidants was recognized by the majority of the people in the entire planet. One such antioxidant that has spread its name in the entire world with its sheer effectiveness in bringing the best possible nutritional effects to a human’s body is Beyonde. This is a product that has taken the world by storm, and it has stayed at the top of the antioxidant drinks ever since.
Before we go on to why Beyonde in the Philippines is the best antioxidant drink in the world, we have to first understand what antioxidant drinks are, and why they are great for the human body.
What are Antioxidants?
Antioxidants are now very well known in the world. Almost all fitness junkies recommend taking antioxidants to whoever consults them. They are known to bring about a plethora of health benefits, and that is why people should incorporate these nutrients into their body. Studies from researchers conclude these health benefits, and it has only helped skyrocket the fame of antioxidants. So, how do you incorporate these nutrients into your body? You drink them.
Simply put, an antioxidant drink is something that contains nutrient-rich foods in their liquid form. The most common types of foods would be fruits, but there are also vegetables that are rich in antioxidants. It has actually been proven that the intake of these kinds of nutrients in liquid form is much more beneficial than taking them in solid form. This is because you get more nutrients per serving by drinking them rather than eating them. You can think of it this way: you can get the daily serving of the required nutrients in a singular glass of fruit and vegetable juice. Even though eating fruits does have its benefits, drinking them in juice form is significantly better.
There are slight variations in healthy drinks such as Beyonde, but the primary effect of antioxidant drinks is more commonly known as the cascade effect. Simply put, their cascade effect is something that builds up inside the body which will result in a large scale benefit. A perfect analogy for the cascade effect is a waterfall. Waterfalls are sometimes known to start out as small streams which will eventually grow into a river, and the river can become a waterfall when the landscape is right. Antioxidants work in the same way. They are designed to slowly but surely bring up the amount of antioxidants in the body of a person that leads to a healthier and more nutritious lifestyle.
The nutrients that the body receives are beneficial at all levels. Some of the benefits include:
- Reduction of signs of aging
- Provides more energy to the body
- Removes harmful substances contained in the body
A healthier and more energetic version of yourself is possible through the regular intake of antioxidants. You can do so much more, finish more work, and be able to be productive every day. In addition to this, you can even mix the antioxidant drink with other foods, create a sauce using the drink, use it as a marinade for your food, or you can even combine them with your baking recipes.
The reason why it is easier for the human body to receive more nutrients from antioxidant drinks is because the body can digest the drink faster and easier. Simply put, the body does not have to go through the hassle of extracting the nutrients from solid food because the nutrients are already extracted in antioxidant drinks. Basically, you are able to gain more benefits while doing it in less time.
However, this does not, in any way, mean that you can eat whatever unhealthy food you want because you are getting the majority of the body’s much needed nutrients from antioxidant drinks. It just means that you should include the intake of antioxidant drinks in your lifestyle that will eventually lead to a healthier, younger looking, and livelier version of you.
Why is it called Antioxidants?
Physiologically speaking, the body’s cells undergo oxidative stress which damages them. As the name “antioxidant” suggests, these nutrients fight off oxidative stress to prolong the cell’s shelf life. Oxidative stress is produced by free radical activities – these are molecules that are highly unstable and can be accumulated through different means. Some sources of free radicals are:
- By-products of normal metabolic processes
- Sometimes ingested or inhaled (cigarette smoke, etc.)
Free radicals are molecules that contain unpaired electrons. This means that they are unlike most molecules; this result to their unstable nature and they are always looking for a proper electron to pair with – even if it comes from other, proper molecules. If left on their own, free radicals, also known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) can lead to oxidative stress, cell death, and intracellular damage. In addition to this, oxidative stress is also commonly associated with many kinds of chronic diseases; although the cause and effect (oxidative stress and chronic diseases) are largely questioned. Additionally, oxidative damage can also damage a person’s DNA – which is a major carcinogen. Another damaging effect of oxidative stress is when low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is oxidized which leads to life threatening heart diseases because high blood and cholesterol is not enough to cause heart disease. Lastly, the most dreaded effect of oxidative stress is the quickening of the aging process which is commonly referred to as the “free radical theory of aging.”
Antioxidants can be considered as the body’s shield against the damaging effects of oxidative stress. Antioxidants can actually be divided into two groups depending on its capability to counteract oxidative stress:
- Antioxidants that neutralize free radicals
- Antioxidants that work by hormesis
So, the question is which of the two is better?
Free Radical Neutralizer
The majority of the nutrients contained in antioxidant drinks are members of this group. Some of them include:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
- Beta Carotene
- Vitamin A
These are nutrients that could be gained through the ingestion of different kinds of food and drinks. Additionally, there are also endogenous nutrients (produced naturally by the body) which are significantly more effective than the formerly enumerated nutrients. Some of them include:
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Uric Acid
- Coenzyme Q (COQ10)
These are considered as antioxidants because they either provide a second electron to the free radicals, which will lead to their stabilization or they lead to the complete eradication of the free radicals. These antioxidants are able to interact with each other through a complicated system to bring benefits to the human body. A great example would be when the capability of antioxidants to neutralize a free radical is used up, then other antioxidants can help charge the used up one and begin the process of neutralization again. One such example would be the capability of glutathione and alpha lipoic acid to regenerate vitamins C and E. These antioxidants work in the body to protect it from free radical change, and they definitely live up to their name as “antioxidants”.
This second kind of antioxidant does not, in any way, function similarly to the first type. Instead of neutralizing the free radicals, the second kind increases the activity of the body’s endogenous antioxidants through hormetic stress. These kinds of antioxidants are usually composed of phytochemicals or plant antioxidants. Examples of these include:
- Resveratrol from Red Wine
- Tannins from Green Tea
- Lycopene from Tomatoes
Much like exercise, antioxidants from plants are hormetic stressors. Simply put, the antioxidants themselves cause a minimal amount of damage. However, it is actually a benefit in disguise because over time, the body becomes stronger and healthier due to the inclusion of the antioxidants.
How does this work? It is through the body’s experience of minor stress and its capability to cope with the natural pesticides included in some of the plants that are used in the making of antioxidant drinks results in the body’s making of more and more endogenous antioxidants on its own natural way. Meanwhile, ingesting fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants will not help the body’s capability of making more and more natural antioxidants on its own, and will not help in the body’s natural defense capability. As a matter of fact, the amount of phytochemicals in a person’s blood only minimally increases after ingesting plants that are rich in antioxidants. Additionally, the effects will only last for a moment, and it will disappear only after a few hours after eating the antioxidant rich plant. Lastly, the overall percentage activities of antioxidants that come from plants only help the body’s health at a miniscule amount. So, even if a person loads up on massive amounts of quercetin or lycopene, it will not result in a significant change in their total health.
Simply put, these plant antioxidants are not directly incorporated into the bloodstream and begin neutralizing free radicals immediately. Instead, their worth comes from the hormetic stress they cause in order to raise the body’s overall amount of endogenous antioxidants.
There are numerous studies that can back up this kind of claim. A team of researchers concluded that the advantageous effects of a plant antioxidant called flavonoid did not come from its ability to change the body’s antioxidant levels, but it was actually able to stimulate the body’s production of uric acid, which is a kind of endogenous antioxidant. Several studies have demonstrated this.
The significant number of researches conducted by experts relating to antioxidants may come as confusing at times, especially because human trials are just starting, but the beneficial effects of antioxidants are undeniable and can be summarized to these following points:
- Oxidative stress is harmful.
- Antioxidants help the body fight off oxidative stress.
- The number one source of antioxidants is, and always will be fruits and vegetables. Therefore, people should start the consumption of these types of food, or more importantly try to drink antioxidant drinks in order to fight off aging symptoms and to, as much as possible, avoid cancer.
A more comprehensive and complicated view of this summary would be:
- Oxidative stress is harmful and should always be avoided.
- A habit that should be practiced by everyone is to raise their body’s antioxidant levels through the ingestion of antioxidant rich food and drinks to protect their bodies against oxidative stress.
Therefore, the supply of the different variety of fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants should be increased and the demand of these kinds of fruits should also be increased. Additionally, the process of eating or ingesting these kinds of fruits should always be in reasonable amounts, and the ingestion of phytonutrients should also be given importance.
