What are free radicals?
Free radicals or oxidants are unstable molecules that damage cells and DNA. The effects of oxidants on the body have been compared to 'rusting out'. They are products of normal metabolism, exercise and immune reactions. They also come from outside the body through environment factors.
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants stabilize free radicals and protect surrounding cells from damage. When the body has a robust supply of antioxidants, they inhibit free radical formation.
What are Carotenes?
Carotenes are powerful antioxidants found on plants and vegetables.
Why is Alpha Carotene Important?
Studies show that Alpha Carotene may have as much as ten times the protective effect of beta carotene in certain tissues and organs.
