The most well known antioxidants are vitamins E and C. They protect our cells from damage caused by metabolic by-products known as free radicals as well as toxic substances from food and the environment such as pollutants and harmful pesticides. Free radicals are unstable particles that become destructive in our bodies when they react with oxygen and damage important cellular components such as DNA and cell membranes.
During these reactions - free radicals may damage cells, which can lead to cellular dysfunction and disease. Scientists agree that damage from free radicals contributes to aging, brain dysfunction, inflammation and chronic diseases such as cancer and atherosclerosis. The body's natural defense against free radicals are antioxidants. Our immune system is always on the ready but it is necessary to support this defense with readily available antioxidants able to absorb free radicals and the best way to do that is with the antioxidants found in plant foods and tea.
