The gift of antioxidants to help you renew your body.

Antioxidants are molecules that protects the immune cells from destructive free radicals that can harm cells and cause damage to the DNA. Eating foods high in Antioxidants is a healthy and smart choice. Every cell in our body needs a steady supply of oxygen to drive energy from digested foods. However, when oxygen is produced unstable molecules that can damage healthy cells in our body is generated. This unstable molecules are free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive, they contain an unpaired electrons which pair up with other electrons. Free radicals search for molecule to take an electron then the oxidized molecule goes to search for another electron to complete itself and as a result deficient electrons and more free radicals are created because of these chain reactions.  Antioxidants are needed to renew cells and to prevent free radicals from damaging cells in our body.  The body produce free radicals on its own however other factors such as cigarette smoking, alcohol, radiation (x-rays & long exposure to harsh weather), environmental pollutants and toxic chemical found in cosmetic products can expedite the production of more free radicals. Too much free radical damages DNA and genetic materials. Antioxidants helps strengthen immune cells.

The body's immune system helps to destroy mutated cells. It helps eliminate invading bacteria and other foreign organism. As we age the body becomes much more vulnerable to free radical and the sign of its damage begins to show up. This is when antioxidants become necessary because it helps to neutralize the damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants  molecules interact to prevent free radical damage. It prevent the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL).
Cancer can occur from irreversible damage caused by free radicals. Many studies link antioxidant- rich diets to a lower risk of both cancer and heart disease and other degenerative disease.
