An antioxidant is any chemical, natural or synthetic, that neutralizes toxins or free radicals, thus protecting our cells from damage. A free radical is an unstable molecule with at least one unpaired electron. It reacts by trying to steal an electron from a neighboring molecule, causing damage in the process. Cigarette smoke, fried foods, ozone, excessive sun exposure, car exhaust, and air pollution are common causes of free radicals.
It is believed that aging and many degenerative conditions are due to free-radical damage to cells. For instance, if a free radical damages our DNA, the eventual consequences could be a higher risk of cancer. If the damage occurs in arteries that supply blood to the heart, it could eventually lead to a heart attack. Thus, it has been proposed that the intake of antioxidants could potentially slow down this damage.
