What are anti oxidants ?
First we have to understand free radicals. free radicals are waste substances produced in our body as we processes food and reacts to the environment. If the body cannot process and remove free radicals efficiently, oxidative stress can result. This can harm cells and body function.
Factors that increase the production of free radicals in the body can be internal, such as any disease, or external, like, pollution, UV exposure, and cigarette smoke.
Antioxidants are said to help neutralize free radicals in our bodies, and this is thought to boost overall health.
