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:
- 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. 🙂
