8. Berries

Berries contain the highest antioxidant score of any fresh fruit. This means they can destroy free radicals in the body before they cause damage to healthy cells.

Athletes who partake in regular, intense exercise may be more vulnerable to free radical damage.Thus it is important for anyone who is very active to ensure their diet is high in antioxidants.
Diet tip: Opt for frozen berries when they are not in season – their antioxidant properties are maintained during the freezing process.
