Free Radicals- What Are They? What Do They Do? How To Avoid Them?

Free radicals are essential to life and exists as a natural phenomena. Whenever we breathe or eat, out body breaks down the food into smaller molecules, some of which are highly reactive and unstable and need a partner to stabilise itself. In this process they snatch an electron from another molecule making that molecule deficient and unstable. This domino effect of trying to stabilise itself results in damage to other cells of the body.

Free radicals can be damaging when they outgrow in number and start impacting the cells in the body. Reducing free radicals in your body includes both reducing the chance they will form and providing your body with antioxidants. Antioxidants attach themselves to free radicals and neutralise their power without causing any further damage. (Why do we need anti-oxidants?)

The body produces antioxidants itself, but not in sufficient quantities alone. However, free radicals continue to be formed as a result of normal breathing or eating or exposure to sun, pollution etc. It’s impossible to entirely eliminate the exposure to free radicals. That said, adopting a healthy diet rich in a wide variety of antioxidants is a great startIng point. (Recipe of anti-oxidant kids will never say no to)

Avoid food high in sugar, processed food, refined flours, processed meat, preservatives and artificial additives to reduce the formation of free radicals. This not only saves you from chronic diseases but also AGING. (What does sugar do to bones?)
