What are antioxidants and antioxidant substances?

Substances that protect and repair cells from free radicals damage are called antioxidants. This damage is a byproduct of normal body metabolism, but can also be caused by cells' exposure to various chemicals, air pollution, excessive sun exposure, radiation and smoking. This oxidative process can lead to the cells dysfunction, which can then cause serious problems like heart disease and diabetes.

The oxidative process is cased by reactive molecules of oxygen and nitrogen, which are generated by the body's metabolism and cells' exposure to various elements. These reactive molecules cause damage to cellular lipids, proteins and DNA. See more information about this on Free Radicals in Human Body page.

Prevent free radicals damage

Antioxidants are valuable because they prevent this oxidative process by neutralizing free radicals and then removing them from the body. This results in improved immunity and reduced risk of infections.

Antioxidants are usually different vitamins we obtain from food, especially vitamin A, C and E. Antioxidant substances are also found in phytochemicals, such as lutein, lycopene and quercetin.

Most of the vitamins and phytochemicals are obtained from fruit and vegetables, but also from nuts and grains, and some from meats, like fish and poultry.
