Vitamin C & Vitamin E. The 2 “classic” antioxidants that we often hear about. Antioxidants help protect cells and prevent damage from free radicals; therefore, reducing our risk of diseases like cancer and heart disease. Free radicals are also the culprit of attacking proteins, fats, and DNA (i.e. breaking down collagen, leading to wrinkles!), so, these antioxidants are great for anti-aging as well! So where can we find these amazing antioxidants?!
