Some metals in nature are exposed to the phenomenon of rust, in what is called the oxidation process.

Is it possible that it affects the living cells in the human body in the same way that it affects minerals, and that oxidation occurs to them?

Let's learn together about the truth about what the cells of the human body go through from aging, and how to treat them with antioxidants, in this article..

Free roots

Free radicals are waste products produced by cells after they process food and interact with the environment in general. They are also formed in the human body as a result of an unhealthy lifestyle, such as:

  • Exposure to chemicals and toxic materials such as strong cleaning agents.
  • Smoking and drinking alcohol.
  • Neglecting to eat vegetables and fruits.
  • Eating more fast foods, especially fried foods.
  • Stress and stress.

If the body cannot efficiently process free radicals; This exposes it to a higher risk of oxidative stress, which causes cell damage and premature aging, and makes the body less able to resist diseases and perform its vital functions properly!

Oxidative stress

Oxidative stress results from an imbalance between free radicals and the body's ability to get rid of them with antioxidants.

Long-term oxidative stress can cause many serious health problems, such as:

  • Cancers.
  • Heart disease.
  • Arteriosclerosis.
  • Hypertension.
  • premature aging.
  • Infertility, especially in males.
  • Visual impairment, which may lead to vision loss.
  • Nervous system diseases, such as: Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.


The word antioxidant does not describe a specific substance, but rather describes the action of this group of substances that fight oxidative stress and free radicals, and help the body restore its youth and immunity.

One of the best sources of antioxidants is plant foods, especially fruits and vegetables.

Foods that are high in antioxidants are also referred to as "superfoods" or "functional foods".
