Antioxidants

What are antioxidants? Antioxidants have become integral to modern health consciousness. 

These remarkable compounds, found in various natural sources can combat harmful free radicals. 

What do antioxidants do?

Antioxidants protect the body from free radicals, and unstable molecules that can harm cells and tissues, leading to ageing and chronic diseases. They neutralize free radicals by donating electrons, preventing damage without destabilizing themselves.

Antioxidants benefits 

Recent advancements in scientific research have unveiled the profound interplay between antioxidants and inflammation, directing a new understanding of their benefits:

  • Some antioxidants exhibit potent anti-inflammatory effects. 
  • Curcumin reduces oxidation of specific proteins, thereby dampening inflammation signal of Alzheimer's disease. 
  • This reduction may slow disease progression. 
  • Combination therapies with antioxidants have shown promise in addressing certain types of inflammation. 
  • A combination of Vitamin E and coenzyme Q10 reduced C-reactive protein (CRP), (linked to heart attack risk). 

Super supplements

Other than vitamin E and vitamin C, these antioxidants have demonstrated the ability to combat inflammation and oxidative stress, potentially preventing various chronic diseases:

  • Curcumin 
  • Resveratrol 
  • Quercetin 
  • Lipoic acid
