Antioxidants

Written by Jeff Behar, MS, MBA   

An antioxidant is a molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules. antioxidants_fruit_juiceOxidation reactions can produce free radicals, which start chain reactions that damage cells.

Antioxidants play a key role in fighting free radicals, a form of oxidation that weakens cells and wears down cell's natural defenses. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers", preventing and repairing damage caused by free radicals.  Research suggests that free radicals cause a number of health conditions and degenerative diseases associated with aging, such as:
