Antioxidants are free radical scavengers that can prevent or delay damage to the cells caused by free radicals or reactive oxygen species, unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental, and other pressures.
Frequent exposure to whole food antioxidants is known to improve cellular longevity. When cells are capable of living for a longer period of time withstanding the free radical damage, they are less prone to inflammation, which in turn reduces the risk of various health problems.
