Will thal rule you or will you rule thal?

This is relevant for all thalassemias. Antioxidants help your red blood cells survive longer. Consuming antioxidant foods should be a high priority for all thals.

List of Antioxidants for G6PD Deficiency, Favism & Hemolytic Anemia


The following is a list of antioxidants for those with G6PD Deficiency, Favism & Hemolytic Anemia. Antioxidants play an important role in preventing hemolysis since red blood cells that are G6PD Deficient can not defend themselves from oxidative stress. Make them a daily addition to your diet.

I recently found another souce for antioxidants that proves promising. Antioxidant Water

Other Anti-oxidants - some not included in the above study

1. broccoli, spinach and other green vegetables - You knew these were good for you because your mother told you so!

2. Tomatoes - contain lycopene, a relatively rare member of the carotenoid family, also found in pink grapefruit and twice as powerful as beta-carotene. Studies have shown that men who eat more tomatoes or tomato sauce have significantly lower rates of prostate cancer. Other studies suggest lycopene can help prevent lung, colon and breast cancers. Tomatoes also contain the antioxidant glutathione, which helps boost immune function. Note: cooked tomatoes are preferable, since heat allows more desirable antioxidants in tomatoes to be made available to the body. And because lycopene is fat-soluble, eating tomatoes with oil can improve absorption.

3 Red grapes - these are delicious frozen and served in lovely glasses for a cool summer dessert. I put a drop of rosewater scented syrup on mine.

4. Garlic - perhaps the world's oldest known medicinal and culinary herb, is packed with antioxidants that can help fend off cancer, heart disease and the effects of aging. The sulfur compounds that give garlic its pungent odor are thought to be responsible for its healing benefits. Studies have shown that garlic keeps the heart healthy by lowering cholesterol levels, reducing blood pressure, fighting free radicals and keeping blood from clotting. Other studies suggest that eating garlic regularly can help prevent cancer. It also has potent anti-fungal properties and can help treat asthma and yeast infections.

5. Tea - The most frequently consumed beverage in the world may also be one of the best ways to prevent a number of degenerative diseases. Tea has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke and other diseases. It was originally thought that green tea had more antioxidants than black tea, but recent studies suggest that they are equally beneficial. The catechins in green tea are oxidized in the manufacturing process of black tea, forming free-radical fighting theaflavins.

6. Carrots - Carrots are loaded with a potent antioxidant called beta-carotene, a member of the healing family of carotenoids. Also found in beets, sweet potatoes and other yellow-orange vegetables, beta-carotene provides protection against: cancer, especially lung, bladder, breast, esophageal and stomach cancers; heart disease, and the progression of arthritis by as much as 70 percent. Note: Cooked carrots have considerably higher levels of antioxidants than uncooked, probably because heat breaks down the active compounds and makes them more available.

7. Kale - this superfood is good for you in so many ways. I grind it up and hide it in foods and my kids eat a lot of it this way.
