Our bodies are attacked from free radicals on a daily basis. They can seriously affect the immune system and threaten our vitality. Free radicals speed up the aging process with the breakdown of collagen and reduced oxygen levels found in cells. They are usually neutralized by vitamins C and E. However, when free radicals overcome antioxidants they may lead to wrinkling, pre-cancerous and cancerous skin lesions. Antioxidants are the body's friend. They seek out, neutralize and destroy free radicals wrecking havoc on the body. Our bodies produce an enzyme to neutralize free radicals but they need the help of antioxidants!
