Antioxidants Vitamins: Benefits and Useful Information

Antioxidants - Introduction

Oxidation is a normal process that takes place in the body. It causes damage to our cells, and it's believed that this cumulative damage is what causes aging and eventually death. Antioxidants are an agent that prevents or inhibits oxidation. Antioxidants help to protect cells from the damaging effects of what is know as "oxygen free radicals." Free radicals are produced by normal body metabolism and by factors such as exposure to radiation and environmental pollutants.

Our bodies produce antioxidants to counteract the damage of free radicals, but unfortunately you need more than what the body can manufacture in todays toxic world. If the supply is low, cellular damage occurs and illness occurs sooner or later.
