Hi all,
What are antioxidants and their role in human life? I need your opinions, so please drop me your lines that can help me out. It would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!


Hello logankey,

Antioxidants are molecules that have the ability to scavenge free radicals.  Free radical are molecules that do damage to other molecules in your body.  Antioxidants restore molecules that have been damaged by normal metabolic processes and are necessary to keep you healthy.  You make several powerful antioxidants in your body.  For example, super oxide dismutase, glutathione and catalase to name a few.  Without them you would die very quickly.  Make sure to eat fresh veggies and fruit so that you will have plenty of antioxidants in your body to keep you healthy.
