An apple slice turns brown. Fish becomes rancid. A cut on your skin is raw and inflamed. All of these result from a natural process called oxidation. It happens to all cells in nature, including the ones in your body. To help your body protect itself from the rigors of oxidation, your body needs to put up its best defense, especially true in today’s environment, antioxidants are thus, crucial to your health.
Antioxidants terminate the chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions by being oxidized themselves. Antioxidants are loyal protectors and nurturers of our cells, repelling diseases such as cold, fever, headache, mental stress, muscle pain, skin disease, anxiety etc and promoting good health.
