Antioxidants are essential because they play a crucial role in protecting our cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can cause oxidative stress and damage to cells, proteins, lipids, and DNA. This oxidative damage has been linked to various health conditions, including aging, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, and cancer.
Antioxidants help neutralize and stabilize free radicals, preventing them from causing harm to our cells. They work by donating an electron to the free radicals, effectively ending the chain reaction of cellular damage. Antioxidants also have the ability to regenerate themselves and continue protecting our cells against oxidative stress.
