Free radicals, or reactive oxygen species (ROS), are waste substances produced by cells as the body processes food and reacts to the environment. If the body cannot process and remove free radicals efficiently, oxidative stress can result. Free radicals are causal factors in nearly every known disease, from heart disease to arthritis to cancer to cataracts to infertility. Free radicals are a major causative factor in the ageing process itself.
Antioxidants help neutralises free radicals and this is thought to boost overall health. The body produces some antioxidants, known as endogenous antioxidants, e.g. glutathione. If genetic mutations are present, the body?s ability to produce these antioxidants is significantly reduced. Antioxidants that are obtained from the diet are called exogenous and are not produced by genetic enzymes, e.g. vitamin C.
Antioxidants engulf free radicals causing a change in molecular structure. This causes the antioxidant itself to become a free radical, although relatively weak and not likely to cause additional harm. Within the body there exists a dynamic interplay between five key antioxidants, often referred to as the network antioxidants. These are vitamin C, vitamin E, Co Q10, lipoic acid and glutathione. These network antioxidants work together to boost and strengthen the entire system, and when used together they enhance the activity of each other and help maintain antioxidant balance.
