What is an anti-oxidant?

By definition an anti-oxidant is a substance that either slows or prevents the oxidative damage to other cells in our body. The oxidation reactions produce what are called free radicals which have been shown to damage other cells in the surrounding area. Anti-oxidants have been classified as “free radical scavengers”. This is why anti-oxidants can potentially be so powerful because they can stop and remove the free radicals and also inhibit other oxidation reactions from occurring.

In nature we see these anti-oxidants at work such as glutathione, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Catalast, Superoxide dismutase
