Antioxidants are nutrients that protect the body from damage caused by dangerous factors, but most importantly oxidative damage caused by substances called free radicals. Free radicals, also known as “reactive oxygen species,” are produced when your body uses oxygen for energy.

Just like fire releases smoke as a by-product, free radicals are emitted from the conversion of oxygen to energy in the human body, so it causes damage to your body’s systems. Free radicals are also produced when the body is exposed to pollution, cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and other harmful environmental toxins.

There are various types of antioxidants, and the majority of them work better when paired up with other antioxidants, also known as synergism.

Vitamins are also known as antioxidants, like Vitamin C and E. Loosely classified as an amino acid, tripeptide glutathione, acts like an antioxidant, along with other true amino acids such as methionine.

The raw herbs and vegetables we eat have natural antioxidants called bioflavonoids and carotenoids, that are effective antioxidants on their own. They are more effective when synergistically combined with other antioxidants.

When these nutrients are put together, they protect your cells from electron robbery at the hands of larcenous free radicals, which protects the body from disease and slows down the signs of aging.

Antioxidants are essential to everyone, but especially for those who exercise on a regular basis. The rationale is that physical exercise is a highly oxidative process and, as a consequence, produces free radicals from aerobic metabolism. Antioxidant compounds help ease this process.

The benefits are that it minimizes the damage from free radicals, protects against cell damage, and assists with prevention of debilitating disease.
