The aim of this website and specifically this page on natural antioxidants, is to keep things simple and to keep them real.So, we are going to try and give you what we hope is an easy explanation of what antioxidants are and why they are thought to deflect virtually all chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, Parkinson's disease and the aging process itself.
Antioxidants can be looked upon as the "infantry" because they are the natural soldiers that help protect the body from harmful free radicals.
Free radicals are molecules out looking for trouble!!
These molecules have lost an electron and in their frantic search to find another one they will destroy healthy cells in their path and so doing also create more free radicals.
Whilst causing damage to cells, they are impairing the immune system
which leads to infections and various degenerative diseases such as
heart disease and cancer.
Although our bodies produce their own antioxidants, we also need to
boost our defenses by eating foods that contain natural antioxidants.
And last, but certainly not least, another important player and
source of natural antioxidants are herbs and listed below are those
whose medicinal properties, amongst other benefits, are them being antioxidants.
