So What Are Free Radicals?

Free radicals are tiny little organic molecules in your body and are documented as being responsible for aging, tissue damage, and possibly some diseases. These molecules are classed as unstable because they do not have an even amount of electrons, and as a result they wonder around searching for an extra electron they can steal to become stable again. By doing this they are in turn changing more stable molecules into unstable molecules, creating even more free radical's. The process goes on and on snowballing out of control until eventually you may come down with sickness.

But don't worry to much because there is almost always asolution to a problem, and the best way to counter act this is by introducing antioxidants to your system. Antioxidants, present in many foods, aremolecules that prevent free radicals from harming healthy tissue.

Some of the leading causes are exposure to toxins, cigarette smoking, poisons like cleaners, pesticides, herbicides, poor diet and intense exercise.
