Antioxidants are molecules that reduce the production of free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals can attack our DNA and blood fats, creating chain reactions which can cause disease.
The damage caused by free radicals can be minimised by leading a healthy lifestyle, and ensuring you have enough antioxidants in your diet.
Antioxidants are found in various vitamins and minerals, in particular vitamins A, C and E and coenzyme Q10.
- A well balanced diet including plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole-grains will go a long way to meeting your antioxidant requirements. Supplements can further support your cellular system.
- Antioxidants are credited with having a positive effect on the onset of age-related issues.
- In addition to antioxidant formulas, multivitamins and mineral compounds also contain antioxidants. Speak to your chemist or health professional for further guidance.
- Did you know… antioxidant pigments were first formed on earth around 200 million years ago, when the first plant life began to evolve and photosynthesise. Back then, antioxidants helped to protect the evolving world from the damage caused by a ‘new’ element called oxygen!
