Antioxidant Essentials contains a variety of substances, vitamins as well as herbs and specific endogenous substances. Antioxidants play a key role in neutralising free radicals. Free radicals are substances that occur naturally during the production of energy in our cells. Normally, a healthy body can scavenge these free radicals with the help of antioxidants.
However, with our current diet and lifestyle, we ingest much more harmful substances, for example through the air, our diet, drinking water and cosmetics. In addition, you can also have a genetic predisposition to reduced antioxidant production. This increases the load of free radicals in the body while reducing the amount of antioxidants, resulting in oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is implicated in, among other things, accelerated ageing of tissues, cell damage and energy deficiencies, and forms the basis for chronic degenerative diseases.
