TIPS BY NUTRITIONIST, KONSTANTINOS XENOS:

Garlic, onion, olive oil, red wine and dill are ingredients that enrich this delicious plate with antioxidants. Antioxidants (mainly found in vegetables) help strengthen our immune system against the so-called oxidative stress. The overexposure to cigarette smoke, radiation and environmental pollution are some of the factors to cause oxidative stress.
