What Do Antioxidants Do?

Gene Millen, Author - Revised 5/14/15

What do Antioxidants do? They protect against the nutritional terrorists that can clogg our arteries and lead to a heart attack.

Millions of free radicals bombard our cells and DNA every day. Antioxidants are the warriors that defend against these attacks.

When free radicals are on the rampage, the pillage and plunder do not make a pretty sight. They take building blocks from normal cells and cause those cells to break down.

Free radical damage has been shown to be instrumental in heart disease, stroke, cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

More Evidence of What Do Antioxidants Do.

Free radicals enhance the process of oxidation which damages the immune system, reduces resistance to infection and colds. It also causes the skin to lose its elasticity and wrinkle.

The benefits of antioxidants C, E and Beta-Carotene have been known for some time but the benefits other important antioxidants are selenium, Zeaxanthin, Lutein and Lycopene are just now getting the recognition they deserve.

Additional Evidence on What Antioxidants do.

Most antioxidants have been removed from food by processing techniques that focus more on shelf life than human life.

Eating fresh fruits and vegetables is important, but getting the combination and quantity necessary for optimum health is a daunting if not impossible task. Check out the foods that enhance heart health.

The evidence is overwhelming that nutrient supplementation is necessary to get the amounts necessary for optimum health and prevention of disease.
