Simply put, an antioxidant binds potentially harmful free radicals and “takes them out of circulation” – a radical that is bound in this way cannot cause any more damage in the body! There are many different mechanisms (some produced naturally in the body, some administered) designed to achieve this objective, but in the end they all have the same positive effect – the harmful substances are “locked up”.
The natural defences of our bodies are quite capable of dealing with a “normal level” of oxidative stress brought on by evolutionary biology without assistance, but nowadays we are exposed to immense burdens from other sources, all of which result in oxidative stress, and our system is overwhelmed more often.
Free radicals do not pose a problem for our bodies as long as there are sufficient antioxidants available. But when too many free radicals form and are not removed, all biological structures suffer lasting damage.
So it is absolutely essential to help our bodies in as many ways as possible.
Antioxidants intercept free radicals directly, and neutralise them by donating an electron to them without themselves becoming free radicals.
Sometimes they become radicals as a result of the process, but these radicals are stable and completely harmless. (Graphic: AIRNERGY AG)
