πŸ‘‰πŸ½ What Are Free Radicals?
For such a simple question, you’d think there would be a simple answer, right?

πŸ”… “The body is under constant attack from oxidative stress. …free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells, proteins and DNA.”

πŸ”† “Free radicals are associated with human DISEASE, including CANCER, ATHEROSCLEROSIS, ALZHEIMER’S disease, PARKINSON’S disease and MANY others. They also may have a link to AGING, which has been defined as a gradual accumulation of free-radical damage…” (EMPHASIS added)

*The entire formation of free radicals, and overall oxidative stress, disrupts and damages our cells!

🌟 Cells are the building blocks of our body, we’re made up of TRILLIONS of cells!

β˜„οΈ So where do free radicals come from?

– food we eat
– medicines we take
– air we breathe
– water we drink

Additional substances include; fried foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides and air pollutants.

πŸ›‘ The catch? No matter what we eat, drink or otherwise consume, healthy or not, our bodies are facing oxidative stress!
