Surely you have already heard about antioxidants in food, which have very important functions: they protect us from diseases such as cancer and they also help us to delay aging.
In addition to resisting infections caused by viruses, fungi, and bacteria every day, the body's cells deal with harmful molecules called free radicals.
These represent a threat to the body because they accelerate the aging process and promote the appearance of diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart problems, warns Dr. Diana Mejía, a specialist in clinical pharmacology.
The imbalance in cells caused by the increase in free radicals is known as oxidative stress and causes multiple negative effects.
In this regard, Dr. Mejía highlights that "sometimes our body is not capable of fighting free radicals one hundred percent, before which we must increase the consumption of antioxidants that are crucial to stay healthy."
FOODS RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants are chemicals that help stop or limit the damage caused by free radicals. We can find them in various fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, some meats, poultry, and fish.
The foods that stand out for their number of antioxidants are:
• Fruits:  apples, grapes, kiwi, papaya, critters, and blackberries.
• Vegetables and legumes:  spinach, chard, broccoli, tomatoes, cabbage, carrots and onion.
• Herbs and spices: ginger, parsley and rosemary.
• Cereals:  corn, rice and wheat.
• Nuts:  almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts
• And other foods like coffee, tea, chocolate, and red wine.
In addition to these foods, says Dr. Mejía, another way to include antioxidants in the daily diet is through the consumption of substances such as beta-carotenes, lutein, lycopene, selenium, vitamins A, B, C and E, chromium, copper, iron and zinc, among others. 
Some of these elements are found naturally in food supplements that offer an antioxidant effect that helps fight the production of free radicals.
When consumed, the skin manifests better hydration and a decrease in the depth of wrinkles, as well as in the hair, providing vitality and strength.
Dr. Mejía Morales also recommends doing enough physical activity, avoiding smoking and prolonged exposure to the sun, as well as using photoprotection appropriately.

Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. It is one of over one hundred cannabinoids identified in hemp plants. However, unlike the full cannabis plant, CBD does not contain THC which is responsible for the stoned/high feeling that the recreational drug provides. Extracted from the flowers and buds of the hemp plant, CBD is being pressed into oil and is increasingly popular to treat, and even prevent, a wide array of health issues in states where medicinal marijuana has now been legalized. CBD oil is stronger and more natural than most non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
