Free radicals are all around us. Our bodies generate them just by breathing and moving. The environment we live in is also full of free radicals from pollution, cigarette smoke, chemicals, even your drinking water, certain foods and the sun that warms your face are creating free radicals.

Don’t panic! They’re bad, but they’re not unbeatable.

Free radicals are molecules missing one of their electrons, which makes them extremely unstable. In order to become more stable, they steal an electron from nearby molecules in the human body. This can disrupt normal cellular processes, causing cellular damage and making us age.

Free radicals can target DNA, enzymes, important proteins and cell membranes. They can ultimately cause cancer and degenerative diseases. It’s been estimated that each cell experiences 10,000 free radical attacks each day.
But, like we said, there’s no need to panic. The antioxidants found in super foods help defend against free radicals. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by giving up electrons, thus making free radicals more stable and no longer a threat to cellular health. In short, free radicals and antioxidants are always doing a dance together.

Your body’s ability to handle free radicals is an important component of long-term health. Your body does produce antioxidants, but the antioxidants you get from food really make a difference in how your body defends itself from free radical damage.
Basically, we can’t avoid free radicals but we can fight them with the
Antioxidants in some super foods

Antioxidants are protectors of our DNA. The more antioxidants our bodies have on hand, the more powerful the force against the free radical insurgence.

They neutralize free radicals and, in effect, minimize their threat by giving up an electron in an effort to stabilize them. Stabilized, the free radicals are no longer a threat to cellular health.

Our bodies produce many antioxidants on their own, but the antioxidants in foods play a critical role in keeping free radicals in check. Indeed, it’s the antioxidants in foods that inspired the once shocking (but now commonly held) belief in the medical community that certain foods promote health beyond their ability simply to nourish the body.
