Oxidation is a normal process that takes place in the body. It causes damage to our cells, and it's believed that this cumulative damage is what causes aging and eventually death. Antioxidants are an agent that prevents or inhibits oxidation. Antioxidants help to protect cells from the damaging effects of what is know as "oxygen free radicals." Free radicals are produced by normal body metabolism and by factors such as exposure to radiation and environmental pollutants.
