Royal Grapeseed’s Fresh, Unfermeted Concord Grape Seeds to Fight Free Radicals
We’ve all heard of antioxidants, but understanding them can be a bit more confusing. Don’t we need oxygen? Why would we want to consume anti-oxidants?
Oxygen is essential to human life. When we breathe, oxygen atoms are inhaled in pairs. O2 provides energy for our bodies cells and allows our bodies to function. Single oxygen atoms, however, are known to attach to other molecules within the body which leads to cell damage. These are known as free radicals. The sole purpose of antioxidants within the body are to give single oxygen atoms something to attach to, preventing free radicals and their subsequent damage. But how do we ensure that our bodies have enough antioxidants to prevent free radical damage?
