Following a heart attack in the fall of 2003, Jon Christensen out of necessity, became interested in antioxidants, polyphenols and anti-inflammatories. After much research he found many natural products and foods that are high in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties.* He wanted to share the knowledge he had gained and offer high quality products that are difficult to find and Antioxidant Alley was born. (If you'd like to read about Jon's heart attack, see the article "Diary of a Heart Attack."

This web site consists of a blog, where summaries of recent research regarding antioxidants, heart disease and general health concerns are discussed and a product catalog, where products high in antioxidants can be viewed and purchased.

We hope you will find the site useful for your learning and beneficial to your health. We're always interested in hearing from our visitors, either through comments to the blog postings or via e-mail. Please let us know what you think and tell your friends about us too!
