Why We All Need Antioxidants

Nails rust when exposed to air and peeled apples go brown.

We all know this but most of us don’t know why. This is really the visible action of free radicals. Less obvious is the effect of free radicals on our bodies.

Your Wellness Centre Naturopathy - AntioxidantsSimply put, free radicals are unstable chemicals which when in excess in the body become more stable by interacting with some of our bodies important cellular structures.

Free radicals cause or aggravate many of the ailments we humans prematurely die from.

The most devastating illnesses promoted are Cancer, Heart Disease, and Premature Ageing!

Here is how it can happen:
Toxins in the body are dealt with in the tissues. Energy is needed for this to take place and results in the formation of free radicals as a by-product. These free radicals are unstable and to gain stability, they ‘steal’ an electron from your blood vessels, your immune system, and other cells. These body structures are then left without electrons and become unstable. And then the damage to our bodies begins.

Sources of free radicals are also food, exercise, stress, cigarette smoke, pollution, radiation, chemicals, pesticides, steroids, antibiotics, microbes and more.

The effects of these are far-reaching and Free Radical damage has been implicated in:

  • Cancer
