Ultimate Nutritions general health for everyone
Antioxidants provide a layer of protection for the cells and tissues of the body. Specifically, antioxidants protect against free radical damage. People must breathe in oxygen to live. Oxygen is necessary for all essential bodily functions. However, a small amount of oxygen escapes and produces unstable by-products called free radicals. Body processes such as metabolism, as well as environmental factors, can produce free radicals. Free radicals in the body can cause damage to cells.
Strenuous exercise increases the body’s production of free radicals, which, in turn, can cause muscle damage manifested as swollen or painful muscles. While exercise increases the body’s natural defense against free radicals, athletes who engage in intense training may benefit from the addition of an antioxidant supplement to their diets. Antioxidants work in a variety of ways to reduce the effects of free radicals
