xocaicomparisonWith the country in an uproar over the impact of the Obamacare affordable care act mandate, it is no surprise that people are now looking to do everything then can to be healthier.  The key is to determine if you want to spend your healthcare dollars on preventative care or dealing with a health crisis that could have been prevented.  Unfortunately we are going to spend money either way, I prefer to spend my healthcare dollars on prevention.  I am not here to say that every healthcare event can be prevented, however it has been proven that eating a healthy diet and exercising can prolong your life.

According to the UCLA Medical School, ” The daily use of antioxidants can add ten healthful years to your life” .  We are not talking about extending your life a few weeks, or months.  We are talking about adding a significant ten healthful years to your life.  That is something we should all be striving for.  Plus, who wants to spend all their time going from doctor to doctor.  It would be so much more enjoyable to spend your time, boating, vacationing, spending time with family or enjoying the wonders of the world.  I for one love the beach on Boca Grande in Florida.  I will gladly take care of my health for an extra ten years of enjoying the wonderful gifts God has given us.

As you are picking out your Medicare Advantage Plan or are choosing healthcare through the Affordable Care Act Exchange, seriously think about the simple changes you can make to improve the quality of your life.  If the daily use of antioxidants can add healthy years to your life, clearly increasing antioxidants is your solution.  If you are not getting 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, consider another option.  I get my antioxidants in healthy chocolate.  Just 3 pieces a day, morning, mid day and evening, gives me the antioxidants I need.  How do you get your antioxidants?
