Fight free radicals

What are Free Radicals?

Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules.

Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction like dominoes.

What causes?

As we are aging and environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and herbicides can also spawn free radicals.

Normally, our body can handle free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if the free-radical production becomes excessive, damage can occur

The effects.

Our skin will age faster with wrinkles to cause us to have different diseases!!!!.

We need foods rich with antioxidants for prevention such as liver, egg yolk, milk, butter, spinach, carrots, squash, broccoli, yams, tomato, cantaloupe, peaches and grains.

And always wear sun protection.
