You’ve likely heard the term “free radicals” referenced in everything from beauty products to supplements, but what are free radicals and why do we need to protect ourselves from them? Let’s dive in and find out...
What Are Free Radicals?
While a free radical may sound like something groovy, in actuality they can have a much different effect on your body. Free radicals are oxygen-containing, unstable molecules that ultimately cause damage to your body. These free radicals go wild as a result of environmental stressors as well as metabolic processes. As we age, the body begins to lose its ability to combat the effects of free radicals which in turn leaves both cell damage and oxidative stress. If you are wondering what oxidative stress is, it’s an imbalance between the antioxidants and free radicals in your body.
Antioxidants for the win! Antioxidants are molecules that have the ability to contribute an electron to a free radical while not making themselves unstable. When this happens, the free radical stabilizes and becomes less reactive.
How Do Free Radicals Affect The Body?
As mentioned above, oxidative stress occurs in the body when there is an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals. When oxidative stress occurs, radicals are damaging the fatty tissue, proteins, and DNA in your body.
It is possible to reduce oxidative stress and free radical damage through a healthy lifestyle and dietary changes. Try to eat a balanced diet, limit your intake of processed foods, stop smoking, reduce stress, and exercise regularly.
