The Cellular Antioxidant Activity, or CAA, is a number which describes the level of antioxidant activity within a certain fruit or vegetable. It’s a useful number because it isn’t just used to compare the level of antioxidants in a food. It also describes the antioxidant behavior in a living system. In other words, it helps to describe the antioxidant activity within the cells of the human body.
Antioxidants, Free Radicals & Oxidative Stress
We know that antioxidants are needed to reduce the level of harmful free radicals in the body. Free radicals are nasty little compounds that enter the body via fast and fried foods, smoking, drinking alcohol and by breathing in second-hand smoke, pollution, and other toxins.
They’re also an unfortunate by-product of normal digestion, breathing and performing exercise. Free radicals can cause damage to the DNA of our cells and to the cells themselves which can lead to oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is the consequence of this cellular damage once it builds up and we notice it in the form of inflammatory or neuro-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and even premature aging.
Antioxidants whizz around the body, ‘mopping up’ these free radicals. The body can produce some level of antioxidants, but the primary source is from our diet, particularly from brightly colored and nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables. Berries such as camu camu and goji, greens such as spirulina and spinach and bright veggies such as carrots and sweet potatoes are all excellent antioxidant sources.
