What Are Antioxidants? What Are Their Benefits?

Before you can understand the value of antioxidants, you first need a working understanding of free radicals. Their relationship to antioxidants is crucial to the very purpose of antioxidants.

What Are Free Radicals?

First, we need to recognize the human body is continually under stress through multiple processes. One way is through oxidative stress which is when oxygen in the body splits into single atoms leaving you with unpaired electrons. These single atoms with unpaired electrons are defined as free radicals.

But there’s more to free radicals than a simple definition of what they are, what they do, and the potential harm they unleash. Through natural biological processes in the body, free radicals just happen. Their existence is a natural occurrence generated by the medications we take, the air we breathe, and what we drink and eat. But did you know that unhealthy foods, tobacco, alcohol, pollutants, and toxins can definitely speed up the exchange of free radicals?


The danger for us lies when we have too many free radicals resulting in too much cellular damage. The most effective way to combat this stress is to keep free radicals in check. Enter antioxidants. Antioxidants prevent oxidation by giving one of their electrons to free radicals. Oxidative stress happens when there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants. Too much of the one (free radicals) and not enough of the other (antioxidants).


Intense exercise, refined and processed foods, artificial sweeteners, inflammation or tissue damage, lack of antioxidants, smoking, air pollution, toxins (insecticides and pesticides), sedentary lifestyles, excessive drinking, and infections in the body may all have an impact on increasing oxidative stress in the body.

Oxidative stress is a natural byproduct of normal metabolism in the body. Keep in mind you still have to manage your oxidative stress levels, otherwise, you're going to have excess free radicals roaming around more causing damage and speeding up the aging process.

By now you are probably convinced of the importance of antioxidants and their vital role in maintaining proper health. To be perfectly honest, the significance of antioxidants should not be underestimated. There are numerous benefits of antioxidants in relation to our health. Below are five important antioxidant benefits you need to be aware of.

Antioxidants Impact Your Immune System

Free radicals aren’t all bad. These scavengers also play a critical role in the immune system by attacking invasive intruders. But what happens when they’re left alone? Free radicals in their unstable atom form can damage cells, causing harm to your immune system. Remember that oxidative stress happens when there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants—too much of the one (free radicals) and not enough of the other (antioxidants). This is why proper antioxidant levels in the body are vital for a fully functioning immune system.

Antioxidants Can Influence Brain Health

You’ll be surprised to learn that antioxidants don’t just impact your immune system. Evidence shows that free radicals are primarily responsible for the “functional decline in aged brains.” That’s not saying free radical damage is the only cause of a decline in brain aging, but this research does suggest the role of free radicals, antioxidants, and oxidative stress on cognitive processes is evident. As it relates to the relationship between antioxidants and brain health, studies have shown that oxidative stress and damage may lead to cognitive decline in humans. Simply put, antioxidants can promote healthy brain aging.

Antioxidants Are Good for Your Skin

Free radicals and the oxidative stress they invite don’t only affect your immune system and the aging of your brain. Did you know antioxidants are also extremely effective for the care of your skin? Free radical scavengers are one of those culprits that can increase the rate of skin aging on your body. These free radicals damage healthy skin cells during this oxidative stress period.

Antioxidants Protect Your Hair

Along the same lines as skin, your hair undergoes oxidative stress and can be affected by free radicals. This stress has harmful effects on the growth and health of your hair. This is known as hair aging. You might notice the thinning of your hair, slower hair growth, and the growth of more gray and white hairs. The presence of antioxidants can help combat these effects giving you thicker, stronger hair.

Antioxidants May Help You Lose Weight

What about weight loss? Can antioxidants help you get rid of stubborn belly fat, help you stay lean, and provide you with energy to help you with exercise? Antioxidants are incredible nutrients that slow down the process of oxidative damage in the body. According to researchers, oxidative stress can trigger inflammation in the body. Oftentimes, weight gain is a result of inflammation; inflammation of fat cells which can reduce your metabolism. Furthermore, inflammation may affect our bodies at the cellular level, especially the mitochondria which play a pivotal role in weight gain and fatigue.
