$9.95 CDN - Antioxidants
Antioxidants are compounds that prevent free radicals from damaging the cells of your body.The damage, called oxidative stress, can accumulate and contribute to the development of several chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer, as well as age-related conditions, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers.
Free radicals are unstable molecules and, depending on their chemical nature and composition, can attack either the membranes that keep our cells intact, the DNA or genetic material contained within our cells, or the proteins that help keep our cells functioning properly.
Where do free radicals come from? Some are produced in our environment, i.e., air pollutants,cigarette smoke and ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. They are also produced in our bodies naturally during the process of metabolism, and when our immune system is presented with a virus or other harmful microbe that needs to be destroyed.
With the Antioxidants eBook from Tufts Health & Nutrition, we help you discover the effects of antioxidants, and highlight the benefits of consuming a diet high in plant-based foods on maintaining health and preventing disease. Instantly download your copy today!
$9.95 CDN - Guide to Eating Right to Avoid Cognitive Decline
This e-Book is a comprehensive review of the latest research on the role of diet and nutrition in maintaining cognitive health. It presents a range of scientific evidence, from large observational studies to animal and human intervention trials, on the impact of individual foods, nutrients and overall diet on cognitive aging.

We all know from life experience that there is a significant range in the effects of aging on cognitive function some individuals experience cognitive decline while others do not. Although there are multiple factors contributing to this disparity, a healthy lifestyle and diet can lower your risk.

But be aware that you should try to obtain most of your vitamins and minerals from food, not from pills. Studies have consistently shown that the synergy of obtaining essential nutrients from your diet delivers greater benefits than when the same nutrients are taken as supplements.

$20.95 CDN - The Mediterranean Heart Diet
Most people know that a Mediterranean-style diet is "good for them," but many lack the information that determines the diet's success. The Mediterranean Heart Diet does what most doctors who recommend the diet don't: spells out which foods are "out" and which are "in," and why. Doctors recommend a Mediterranean eating style to thousands who are diagnosed each year with heart disease because it is "heart-healthy"- it promotes lower saturated-fat consumption, and helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels. It is an all-purpose style of eating that also benefits those at risk of developing certain cancers and those with a diabetic condition, because it is high in antioxidant-rich foods and whole grains. The Mediterranean Heart Diet not only provides a full range of satisfying recipes but also covers the science behind the diet's health benefits. Readers learn to create their own healthful eating plans and establish new habits. More than 140 delicious recipes are included, from satisfying Lentil and Broccoli Soup to tangy Halibut in Citrus Sauce. All recipes feature nutritional analysis by serving, including food exchanges.
