So happy to see pecans, artichokes and blackberries on this list

Anorther berry is missing from this list: Acai. It is packed with antioxidants more than most other foods. You can buy it in frozen puree packages from most stores. I make Acai Bowls with tem but some people use them for smoothies too.

Keep in mind that your best course of action is to lower your need for anti-oxidants in the first place.

Eating grains actually INCREASES your need for anti-oxidants - they reduce absorption of most minerals. Less grain, better absorption.

If you eat low carb, you need much less vitamin C because carbs and vitamin C are in competition for absorption.

I am a freak for kidney beans. I put them in all my soups that I can, and all my dinners. I just need to try them on a salad. YUM

This was very informative!

I eat a lot of this favorites are strawberries and blueberries when they are in season...a half a cup of each in my oatmeal each morning. One thing I need to incorporate into my diet are beans.

what a great explanation of antioxidants! and a great list, too - i just had artichokes for dinner and bought blueberries at the grocery store. almost bought some cherries, too, but money is kinda tight at the moment. strawberries and apples are big ones for me, too - gala are my absolute favorites, i love crisp, tart apples.

This list needs ti be update. It was published in 2004. I just found out that the coffeeberry has 625 the antioxidant capacity as the "mighty" blueberry! I take it in my coffee, my nutritional drink and even in my energy drinks!
