About Antioxidants, SimplyAntioxidant.com and Me
My name is Ying Chun.
Welcome to my site !
... A site to share information on antioxidants; a site that is purely:
Side Note: The information contained anywhere in this site is purely for information and educational purposes only and should not be taken to override any medical advice you have been given; and in no way should be considered as medical advice.
When I first began researching antioxidants, part of my frustration was that, like a lot of “newish” subjects, there is information all over the place --- and so much information:
I had been on that path, confused and frustrated at times ...
In sharing with you what I have learned, I hope to help you gain an understanding of anitioxidants; in hope that your learning path will be much smoother than mine.
Hence, this site attempts to consolidate the information I have gathered on antioxidants and organize them in such a way:
Last but not least, I shall make the readings "light hearted" where I can ... it will be a challenge as health is a serious subject. On the other hand, being able to take things easy\easier is good for health. ;-)
I invite you to explore this Nature’s gift to us … the mighty Antioxidants!
My wish is to share with you all that I know about antioxidants ...
... in simple terms ...
So, that you don’t have to read a zillion websites, books and magazines, to get an understanding of antioxidants and how they can contribute to your health – and that, if you are already considering antioxidants for health, you can begin your journey more easily.
I hope to make the information simple to read and understand, and with as few scientific and medical terminologies as possible; I can emphatize that at times too many scientific/medical terms can be overwhelming, especially when you are merely trying to grasp a simple understanding.
However, I may use medical terms or include medicals terms where I feel they are needed, as some folks may be searching for antioxidants for specific health issues.
I have had a testing health journey for more than 20 years – migraines, digestive issues, diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) which later developed into fibromyalgia … just to name a few.
In all these years, I have read and researched a lot about natural remedies and therapies, as I am not into taking conventional medication for my conditions – in any case, there are no drugs or conventional medication today, for some of these health issues I faced.
Thankfully, I have managed to treat and/or control some of my health issues with natural remedies and therapies.
I used to take supplements by the handfuls … daily!– and I believe that’s what sustained me till today, given the health challenges I faced.
At my age (50-ish!), I do not have the ”usual” age related illness – even with strong diabetic genes, I do not have diabetes. So, I guess the supplements have helped me, health and aging-wise -- on top of managing my CFS/fibromyalgia conditions.
When I discovered antioxidants a couple of years ago, my healing became exponential overnight – literally in 2 weeks.
I wanted to learn more about what this miracle remedy is – they are vitamins, they are also minerals, they are also enzymes … by convention, they can’t be all these things together … so, what are they ?
I wanted to know !!!
Antioxidants … when I first came across this word, I struggled with it. They are something that we need for our health but they are “anti” – “oxidants”.
What is “oxidant” anyway? Does it have anything to do with oxygen? And if it does, and why is anything that is “anti” oxygen good for our health ? I thought we need oxygen to live!
With all my years of reading and researching natural medicines and therapies, I hadn’t the faintest idea what antioxidants are about.
So, I guessed there must be people out there who might also be wondering what exactly this “anti”-“oxidant” is or these “anti"-"oxidants” are.
When I learned so much about them, I told anyone who would care to listen. To me, this is like the “miracle” health remedy Nature gave us !!! (Okay … technically, it can’t be a miracle if it’s natural.)
The idea of sharing what I know via the website came to me ...
I have to admit I am not a health professional. I am just someone who would like to share my own discoveries – in the hope they can be of help to others as well.
I invite you to explore this wonderful Nature's gift ... the mighty Antioxidants !
