Antioxidants are a group of compounds that neutralize the damage caused by free radicals. The oxidation process in the human body damages cell membranes and other structures, including cellular proteins, lipids and DNA.

When oxygen is metabolized, it creates unstable molecules called "free radicals" that steal electrons from other molecules and cause damage to DNA and other cells. The oxidation process is faster due to stress, cigarette smoking, alcohol, sunlight, polluted air and other factors. Antioxidants can stop this chain reaction. They are basically your body's first line of defense, keeping free radicals under control, counteracting their harmful effects and removing them from the blood.

Although they act in different organ systems of our body, antioxidants communicate and support each other. Together, they work as a fantastic team that defends the body from destructive unstable molecules called free radicals.
