The Functions of Antioxidants

The Functions of Antioxidants

I couldn’t help but notice that many health conscious individuals like to throw about antioxidants as a kind of buzzword…but most of the time they don’t really know what the word means!

In this article we will be taking a look at the functions of antioxidants, their benefits and general facts, in infographic format.

By the end of the article you should have a decent knowledge on the subject…

The Antioxidant Effect

Our bodies create free radicals and then create antioxidants to keep these free radicals in check. There’s only one problem though…

The body seems to be a lot better at creating these free radicals (i.e. in most cases, free radicals far outnumber the naturally occurring antioxidants).

So, we really need to try and find some external sources of antioxidants if at all possible – try our hardest to level the playing field (between free radicals and antioxidants!).

But it doesn’t just stop there, oh no…

Antioxidants also benefit:

  • Vision
  • Bone Growth
  • Cell Function
  • Fighting Infection
  • Protection Against Cataracts
  • Cardiovascular Diseases
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Sun Damage to the Skin
  • Repairing DNA
  • Can Help Slow The Aging Process

The bottom line here is that you really should listen to your mother – eat up all your fruit and veggies and you’ll grow up to be a big strong boy/girl. 🙂

  1. I really liked your infographic on antioxidants. I agree that they definitely have become a buzz word for health. I have a hard time understanding scientific studies and really like infographics because they break the benefits down into something clear and easy to understand.

    Do you create these infographics or do you find them?

    I only ask because my partner is also running a blog and she struggles to find decent, royalty free images for it at times. 

    1. Hi there Michael – it’s really cool to hear that the infographic structure of this article helped you understand the subject of antioxidants….it worked! 🙂

      To be honest with you, I don’t really have the time to create these health-based infographics so I have a quick search around online to find one to fit with my food, exercise or health posts. 

      Most creators don’t mind you using them as they leave their own website addresses on them. 

      Good luck with your partner’s blog!
