Why Do We Need Antioxidants?

CONTROL FREE RADICALS <> BUILD IMMUNITY <> SAVE FROM DISEASE <> DELAY BODY DAMAGE/ AGING

Antioxidants are substances which save living organisms from oxidising or reaction with oxygen or aging. In simple words, when any object oxidises, it is becoming bad, over ripe, aging, reducing in nutrients. Take for example apple which when cut turns brown. However, when we apply lemon juice (antioxidant) on the cut fruit, its stops becoming brown or oxidising. When we consume food, along with energy, some free radicals (villains!) are released in the body. Antioxidants help to kill these villains or neutralise their power in order to keep our body healthy and disease free.

Even by eating 7-8 portions of colourful vegetables and fruits in a day, you might still be lacking in antioxidants. We need to consume almost 10000 units of antioxidants in a day. It is advisable to choose your meals in a way that your ‘nutrition and antioxidant’ content is met and you are at your healthiest.
