Oxidation (oxygen combining) is a natural chemical
reaction in our body.
It is a process necessary to maintain life.
During the oxidation process free radical molecules are
produced; but sometimes certain chain reactions may be
activated, which can cause damage to our body cells.
Due to these damages in the cells most chronic diseases can
develop, including acceleration of the mechanism of ageing.
Antioxidants are molecules naturally present in the
human body as well as in many foods we consume, like
whole grains, vegetables and fruits.
As we grow older, though, our bodies produce less antioxidants
so we have to take them from external sources.
It is vital that we supplement our diet with natural whole
foods to maintain the right level to fight any damages.
