All you need to know about Antioxidants
What are Free Radicals?
Free Radicals are unstable molecules that contain oxygen. Because they are unstable they are more likely to react and these reactions can cause harm. This oxidation process is negative because it can create unwanted chemicals in the body.
Where do Free Radicals come from?
Free Radicals are released in the body for a variety of different reasons. Exposure to pollution, UV light are external factors that cause free radicals to be released in the body. Smoking cigarettes or inhaling smoke and eating unhealthy foods which contain saturated fats are common internal factors that lead to the release of free radicals.
Can Antioxidants reduce inflammation?
Sometimes free radicals can set off a chain of reactions which result in inflammation. Antioxidants can help to reduce this inflammation.
What are the benefits of taking antioxidants?
There are a large number of potential benefits that you may experience if you take an antioxidant regularly.
There is lots of evidence that suggests that antioxidants (especially Vitamin C) can boost the immune system.
In addition to this it has been observed that antioxidants can reduce the risk of diseases like heart disease.
Because antioxidants seek out free radicals and neutralise them there are lots of beneficial effects that many people experience when taking antioxidants. Some people have also observed that antioxidants can help enhance natural beauty too; improving the quality of the hair, strengthening nails and helping skin to be more radiant.
