What are antioxidants, anyway?

Every single cell in our body requires oxygen to function. When the oxygen molecule is utilized a by-product is created. Sometimes these “used” or transformed molecules lose one of their electrons in the process and become “needy” or unstable.

Naturally these hungry “free radical” molecules go on the hunt for more electrons. The only way to get an electron is to steal one from a stable and healthy molecule. Antioxidants are the “bounty hunters” that scout out these unbalanced thieves and destroy them. They are the vital protectors of our cells and the war between free radicals and healthy cells is ongoing. Get as many as you can.
