Today’s Question: Our editor, Christine, went crazy for the Intelligent Nutrients anti-aging cleanser she tried, which uses antioxidants to slow the aging process. Just how do antioxidants manage to do this? Is it by moisturizing, by improving elasticity, or by fighting free radicals?
Answer to Yesterday’s Question: You may refer to yourself as wine connoisseur, but we’re willing to call your bluff (and make you sound a little less pretentious). We asked which substances found in red wine prevent blood clots and damage to blood vessels: flavonoids, nonflavonoids, or resveratrol? The answer: All of the above. Sorry for the trick question, but according to the Mayo Clinic, flavonoids, nonflavonoids, and resveratrol are all antioxidants that help prevent blood clots and blood vessel damage. So why not stop by happy hour this evening for a glass of cab? Your blood vessels deserve it.
