Have you ever wondered how antioxidants can actually benefit your health? According to Better Health Victoria, the role of antioxidants is to neutralise free radicals in the body and fight disease. Free radicals are unstable chemicals produced by the body that can cause cell damage. Free radicals can also have an effect on our external health and cause premature ageing. According to Better Health Vic, this oxidation can be worsened by environmental factors including stress, smoking, sun exposure, pollution and alcohol.
With both internal and external benefits, antioxidants play a crucial role in the overall health of our bodies. Found in skincare, supplements, fruits and vegetables, we can all benefit from antioxidants!
