We have been blessed with a defense sytem in our bodies, yet the enemy manages to get past and damage lipids, proteins, cell walls, vessel walls and even the DNA nucleus of the cell. Unfortunately, this enemy keeps striking in our lives everyday ! Lurking in the form of excessive stress, excessive exercise, air pollution, cigarette smoke, pollution of food and water, ultraviolet rays, electronic gadgets, medications, cosmetics and radiation. Plus oxidative stress that keeps ticking every moment.
All of the above trigger free radicals constantly. If they are allowed to accumulate and are not neutralised rapidly, they can lead to inflammation in the body. Yet, call it the magic of Providence or whatever you will, our wall of defense is made up of antioxidants, whose main function is to neutralise free radicals. And they work synergistically to disarm them and reduce inflammation.
