Antioxidants

Antioxidant nutrition supplements can slow damage to cells caused by unstable molecules called free radicals. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals.

The body naturally produces free radicals — waste substances produced by cells as the body processes food and reacts to the environment (e.g. pollution, UV exposure, and cigarette smoke) or internal stressors such as excess inflammation.

If free radicals build up in the body, oxidative stress can result which harm cells and body function and may lead to development of chronic diseases.
