For those of you that have read this blog for a while, you will remember how I used to do interviews with Chiropractors, students, and patients. Two of those interviews were with Dr. Lauren Clum and Dr. Mariza Snyder. The reason why I bring these two up is because they recently co-authored their first book together, entitled The Antioxidant Counter.
At no more than 128 pages and small enough to fit into your back pocket, this book has a ton of great information that you can use and apply into your life today.
The first part of the book addresses what foods are best to eat in our day and age of fast food, boxed meals, and GMOs. Next up, they get into antioxidants and why they are essential to a healthy lifestyle and combating the toxins we face every day. Then, they address the vital building blocks needed for optimal health, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc.
The second part of the book gets into the ORAC scale, which stande for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. The ORAC scale was developed by the National Institute of Aging, which is a branch of the National Institute of Health. Here, you can see for yourself which foods are best to eat and where they rank on the ORAC scale.
The last part of the book is devoted to healthy recipes that include antioxidant-rich foods. Everything from green smoothies, to salads, to healthy dinners is covered in this book.
Most people reading this blog for any length of time will know I am very focused on practicing straight Upper Cervical Chiropractic and don’t get into offering nutritional advice, prescription supplementation, or anything else like that. But I am more than willing to point my patients in the right direction for information they can use and apply in their daily lives.
The Antioxidant Counter is one of those resources. Dr. Snyder and Dr. Clum did a great job in providing high quality, useful information in such a condensed, straight forward, and to the point way. In this day and age of hustle and bustle, I think people will appreciate this aspect of the book.
But more importantly, people will appreciate the great information contained within its pages.
