๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ What Are Free Radicals?
For such a simple question, you’d think there would be a simple answer, right?

๐Ÿ”… “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.”

๐Ÿ”† “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!

๐ŸŒŸ Cells are the building blocks of our body, we’re made up of TRILLIONS of cells!

โ˜„๏ธ 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.

๐Ÿ›‘ The catch? No matter what we eat, drink or otherwise consume, healthy or not, our bodies are facing oxidative stress!
