Specific steps should be followed to increase life expectancy, and exercise is considered one way to extend life. Activity requiring physical effort, carried out to sustain or improve health and fitness is referred to as exercise, as previously mentioned throughout. A little movement can greatly improve our body and minds. The Body Reboot book reveals how a low carb, high fat diet can improve health. Here Jose Lopez, NaturalNews.com, reflects on consumption of quercetin to protect red blood cells from damage, during and before strenuous exercise:
“Exercise, especially when done regularly, is beneficial for both the body and the brain. However, there are cases where strenuous physical exercise can produce excessive reactive oxygen, otherwise known as oxidants. The body’s antioxidant defenses may be overwhelmed in this instance.

Fortunately, researchers from the Foro Italico University of Rome found evidence that the regular consumption of flavonoids, particularly quercetin, before and after workouts can prevent damage to red blood cells, or erythrocytes, caused by oxidants.

Flavonoids are natural chemical compounds found in vegetables and fruits that prevent outside organisms from causing disease in plants. Quercetin is one of the more common flavonoids: Capers, dill, cilantro, and red onions typically have high quercetin content. It can also be found in honey drawn from several kinds of plants.

Quercetin is known to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer properties because it modulates the signaling pathways and gene expression involved in animal and human cells. However, little is known about its effect on the reduction-oxidation (redox) reactions within humans, particularly in combination with strenuous exercise. Redox reactions are chemical reactions in which atoms gain electrons (reduction), or atoms lose electrons (oxidation). Ideally, an electron detaches from a molecule and almost simultaneously re-attaches to another molecule. However, this isn’t always the case.

When an atom with an extra electron isn’t able to reattach itself immediately, it becomes a free radical. Free radicals can be harmful to the human body if they do not reattach to a reducing molecule or antioxidant. They can damage cells, fats, proteins, and even DNA, by altering the latter’s chemical structure. This can lead to cancer, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, and other diseases.

Strenuous exercise can produce lots of free radicals since the body is taking in lots of oxygen — more than the body could absorb at the moment.”
