The power of antioxidants in your diet

One of the biggest culprits of cellular degradation is through the battle against free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that contain an unpaired electron, often from the breakdown of larger molecular structures as well as the introduction of carcinogens in the blood and other common means. This unpaired electron can wreak havoc of our body’s cells as the molecule looks to steal electrons from our own body’s cells. Free radicals float through the body from various sources and can cause problems with cellular degradation and regeneration, which ultimately creates longterm health issues such as premature aging, heart disease, cancer, and other diseases, as free radicals are believed to play a significant role in their development.

So what is our greatest asset in the war on free radicals? Antioxidants. Antioxidants help clear the body of free radicals and bring balance to the unpaired cells to allow our bodies to better perform their routine cellular functions.
