Your body is constantly creating Free Radicals-these are bad or unstable molecules that hurt the good cells in your body and cause harm to your body in the form of disease.
Why does our body create free radicals if they are not good for you?
The immune cells in your body need Free Radicals to fight infections.
Antioxidants are molecules that neutralize Free Radicals, hence your body requires a certain balance between antioxidants and free radicals. If Free Radicals outnumber Antioxidants in your body, then a condition known as oxidative stress is created. A prolonged state of oxidative stress can damage your DNA as well as other important molecules killing cells and leading to disease or death.
Some causes of oxidative stress include: air pollution, smoking, toxins, excessive alcohol, high intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids and tissue damage as a result of intense and prolonged exercise.
As you can see, antioxidants are essential in your body for balance. While the body naturally creates its own antioxidants, you can eat certain foods to help increase the antioxidants in your body. Vegetables, fruits, especially berries are know to be good sources of antioxidants. Green tea, coffee are also considered good sources of antioxidants. You should avoid large quantities of processed foods.
