Damage caused by free radicals in human body
Free radicals are unstable molecules produced when
the body breaks down food, or by enviromental exposures to tobacco smoke, pollution, herbicides and radiation.
These unstable molecules usually have an odd electron, which then seeks to bond with other compounds in order to
gain stability. This becomes a chain reaction, causing cells damage and ultimately leading to health problems.
Free radicals damage increases with age. Vitamins or antioxidants stop this damage by "adding" one of their own
electrons to free radicals, thus stopping the damaging process.
The best antioxidant substances
are vitamins A, C and E, as well as phytochemicals lutein,
lycopene, and quercetin. See our Antioxidants Info section for more
