It seems everything in our daily lives generates free radicals. A list of just a few free-radical forming excesses – caffeine, alcohol, sunlight, fried foods, red meat, stress and lack of sleep – might best be described by most of us as, “What I Did Last Weekend.” So if most daily activities and many favorite foods generate the kind of body pollution (or cellular “smoke”) that physicians refer to as free radical damage what do you do to improve your internal environment short of becoming a raw foodist-vegetarian-macrobiotic purist who gets lots of sleep and stays indoors meditating in pure, ionized air?

The answers to the free radical fighting conundrum are fortunately flavorful ones. Free-radical scavengers include bright, deep-colored berries and leafy nutrient-dense greens. The occasional glass of red wine and square of dark chocolate doesn’t hurt the fight either. It turns out that combating chronic disease and premature aging can be pretty tasty!

While the extent to which antioxidants directly impact health is still in question, there is no doubt that a diet dominated by antioxidant-rich foods results in better health. What to do if you’re short of food prep time or simply can’t fit eating 9 servings of fruit and veggies into a full or fragmented schedule? Antioxidant supplements are one option. Bai Antioxidant Infusions are eight more delicious possibilities.

Each bottle of Bai is infused with an antioxidant-rich extract made from the red berry that surrounds coffee beans. This berry, known as coffeefruit or even ‘superfruit’, protects coffee beans from the intense UV rays that bear down from the sun day after day in the Equatorial regions where coffee is cultivated. By the time the berry has been plucked and separated from the coffee bean, coffeefruit has been transformed into a small but mighty warrior in the battle against cellular damage.

When you twist a red cap off of a bottle of Bai, it’s the true-to-nature scent and taste of fresh fruit that grabs your attention (to see all eight varieties click: ) but it’s the knowledge that you’re giving your body an antioxidant boost via coffeefruit extract that you might find yourself celebrating.
