Antioxidants: Why Do We Need Them

Antioxidants and Free Radicals

Antioxidants and free radicals are two terms that we hear a lot about. The two are present in our bodies all the time. Our bodies “make free radicals as a byproduct of cellular reactions” such detoxification or to combat bacteria or viruses. Antioxidants on the other hand, are also made by our bodies or gained from foods that are rich in them. So when antioxidants become lower and free radicals are higher in the body due to several factors including toxic exposure, pollution, UV rays and poor diet, oxidation occurs leading to premature aging.

Antioxidants Benefit on Skin Aging

Antioxidants neutralize the impact of free radical damage and are super essential to the health of our skin. Consuming antioxidant rich foods, using self care products that are superior in well-known protective antioxidants and protecting our skin from UV rays is key. Antioxidants come in several types including Vitamins C, A & E.
