So why are antioxidants important? There is a group of vitamins, minerals and enzymes called antioxidants that help protect our body from the formation of free radicals. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms that can cause damage to our cells, impairing our immune system, leading to infections and various degenerative diseases. There are 3 known free radicals - the superoxide, the hydroxyl and peroxide. They may be formed by exposure to radiation and toxic chemicals, overexposure to the sun's rays or through the action of various metabolic processes, such as the use of stored fat molecules for energy. The mechanism in which free radicals are normally kept in check is by the action of free radical scavengers that occur naturally in the body. These scavengers neutralise the free radicals. Certain enzymes serve this vital function. Four important enzymes that neutralise free radicals naturally are superoxide dismutase (SOD), methionine reductase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase. The body makes these as a matter of course. In addition, the work of these scavenger enzymes can be supplemented by a diet rich in antioxidants, such as vitamins A,E and C and the mineral selenium and other nutrients. These antioxidants are also scavengers, gobbling up the free radical particles. If the diet is inadequate or lacking the appropriate antioxidants, or if the system is overwhelmed by free radicals, taking a supplement, such as Morlife Antioxreds can help to supply a totally natural source of naturally occurring antioxidants, in this easy to use powder.
