    I have read several articles that indicate both blueberrie and wine are good antioxidants (as long as it is not too much wine)

    A recent class of "super-antioxidants" more powerful than any others known called Xanthones have been found in the world's most powerful superfruit, Mangosteen, far superior to berries or other fruits such as Acai.

    Now the subject of hundreds of scientific papers and studies with over 100 confirmed effects to date, a U.S. based company, VEMMA, has combined the power of these Xanthones (40 of them are found in the Mangosteen fruit, principally in the pericarp or rind of the fruit) along with a full spectrum of 12 vitamins, 65 essential and trace minerals, aloe vera, and green tea to create a product just named by The Men's Journal magazine as the "Best Overall Liquid Nutritional and Antioxidant Health Product."

    One of the few natural health products with independent, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled clinical studies and recommended by leading U.S. and European doctors, the VEMMA Mangosteen product has an ORAC score of 115,000 (one of the highest ever tested) and has been featured in such publications as Esquire magazine.

    You can also get this same formula in their revolutonary, new product called Verve, the world's 1st healthy energy drink and just named 2009 Product of the Year by a leading fitness and health publication.

    Most exciting, they recently introduced a delicious tasting, liquid nutritional and antioxidant health product for kids 2-12 years of age that also features a fruit and vegetable blend, so if your kids are picky eaters, this is an easy way to make sure they get the necessary nutrients for good health and proper development. 

    And the best part is there's no charge to be a distributor, so if you're looking to promote a world class line of nutritional and antioxidant products, this is it!

    Green, black or oolong teas.

    There are three main varieties of tea -- green, black, and oolong. The difference between the teas is in their processing. Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols. Antioxidants are substances that scavenge free radicals in our body.
