Want to see antioxidants at work?

To watch the amazing fighting power of antioxidants with the bare eye:

1. Cut an apple in half

2. Squeeze fresh lemon juice on only one side of the apple

3. Let both sit on the counter for an hour

Results: The brown side, without the lemon, has been attacked by oxygen. “Needy” electrons of used oxygen transform the fruit within minutes of exposure.

The white side, with the lemon juice, has had the powerful punch of the antioxidants to scout and eat up those needy oxygen molecules. Citrus antioxidants are stronger than many others — fresh-squeezed lemonade anyone?
