Abstract

Advocating Use of Antioxidants in Ensuring Optimal Health

Free radicals play a key role in cell damage resulting in progression of multiple diseases and fast-tracking of the ageing mechanism. The generation of free radicals is physiologically under the control of antioxidants which are considered as the first line of defense, and thus are the decisive compounds in ensuring the sustenance of the optimum health standards. Free radical induced damage can become collective and depleting whenever the availability of antioxidants is limited.

Keywords: Antioxidants; Free radicals; Health; Balanced diet
