In this video, Dr. Berg explains how the leaves change color in the fall due to antioxidants. Normally, leaves are green because of the chlorophyll which is a part of something called photosynthesis, where it is taking sunlight and creating energy. A spike of a certain antioxidant called Anthocyanins occurs at the end of the summer and this compound gives a red, purple or blue color like in eggplants, oranges, cherries, grapes as a pigment to protect the leaf of the plant from extreme temperatures and is very dependent on the pH. Another antioxidant called carotenoids which are causing yellow, red and orange and has over 11,000 of types. Flavonoids which are yellow, yellow red, blue, magenta and it is also an antioxidant that gives the plant its UV filtration.

Antioxidant Effects on the Body:
• Anti-inflammatory
• Anti-cancer
• Increase uric acid – It is one of the most powerful antioxidants that our body makes.
