Antioxidants can be conceptualized in a number of different ways. (1) as insurance against some of the more visible effects of aging. (2) as a weapon in our fight to make our average life expectancy more closely resemble our expected lifespan. (3) as a line of defense against the risk of developing certain illnesses and diseases.
Antioxidants are really a class of vitamins and nutritional ingredients that help fight and rid the body of free radicals. Free radicals are simply electrons that are no longer attached to atoms. Instead of circling the nucleus of an atom (much like the earth circles the sun), free radicals are both free and radical enough to go careening through our cells, inflicting damage as they go.
A process called oxidation creates free radicals and this process happens in the context of normal metabolic processes and our everyday exposure to our environment. In other words, eating, breathing, and going out in the sun all contribute to the process of oxidation, free radical formation, and the resulting damage that is caused to the cells of our bodies.
Pretty much every kind you can think of: the deterioration of bone, joints and connective tissue; the wearing out of organs; the decline of the immune system; the irritating advance of the visible effects of aging; and even, possibly, to some extent, the aging process itself.
Because free radicals are implicated in all these processes, minimizing and neutralizing their activity with antioxidants may allow us to live longer and healthier lives, look and feel better, and reduce or eliminate the risk of certain illnesses.
When the cells and body carry on with their daily functions, oxygen is used in the process and oxidation takes place. Although these are normal functions, they do cause free radicals, the waste material of these processes that can have an influence on the forming of cancer, arterial damage, inflammation, and accelerated aging through oxidative damage.
