Antioxidants

canstockphoto16751536Antioxidants are small molecules that counteract oxidative stress and help the body to stay healthy. The majority of antioxidants come from plant sources: fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Examples of antioxidants are polyphenols in green tea, anthocyanins in purple berries, resveratrol in red wine and lycopene in tomatoes. Some vitamins such as C, A and E, as well as minerals like selenium and zinc, are also potent antioxidants.

Rabbit meat is high in selenium.  It is a cell regenerating agent that fixes the bodies cells.  It has a great effect on the skin which is the bodies biggest organ and assist with keeping the skin healthy.  A healthy skin for longer means less wrinkles and a neglected skin sooner means more wrinkles. This is really self explanatory and just a very good example of how what we know today marries the old believes and myths before our time.

Further more the phosphorous content in rabbit meat also aids this process.
