Sources of antioxidants
Thousands of antioxidants naturally occur in plant foods. The most well known are vitamin E, vitamin C, beta carotene, and selenium. While they all work to prevent oxidative damage, they each have their own method of getting the job done. They also work best as a team, each doing its part to provide well-rounded protection against cancer.
Among the best sources of antioxidants are brightly colored fruits and vegetables including, though not limited to:
Red bell peppers
