HydroGo Antioxidant Essentials

“Antioxidants” is one of those buzzwords that gets thrown around a lot, even though most people don’t fully understand what it means. We know that foods full of antioxidants are really good for us, and we should buy skincare with antioxidants to keep our skin healthy and ward off signs of aging. We need antioxidants, we should always say “yes” to antioxidants. But, why? What are these mythical compounds, and why is everyone always making such a big deal out of them?

Antioxidants are compounds found in food that stop or delay damage to the cells. They are naturally found in many foods, especially plants. They help ward off cell damage by “cleaning up” or removing waste products in our cells, called free radicals, before they can do harm. Antioxidants are released from the foods we eat through digestion and travel through the bloodstream and into cells, where they do work on free radicals.

Speaking of words often thrown out yet rarely explained: the infamous “free radical.” “Free radicals” is a general term used for compounds that are highly reactive, which means that they can attach, bind to, and ultimately damage normal cells in the body, such as DNA. Free radicals are most often implicated in cell damage that leads to cancer development. Free radicals can be caused by outside sources, such as smoking or toxins, but a lot of them come from normal metabolism in the body. Thus, we can control them to some degree—for example not smoking or overeating—but not entirely. The body has built-in defenses to reduce the impact of free radicals, but it could use some help. That’s where antioxidants come in. These molecules bind to free radicals, thereby potentially reducing harm to molecules such as DNA. Once bound to antioxidants, free radicals are no longer free to bind with—and potentially damage—parts of your cells.

Now that I have you all bored and feeling like you’re back in school, let’s get to the fun stuff! Antioxidant perks extend much further than fighting free radicals. They support kidney function, protect against digestive disorders, provide anti-aging effects, maintain healthy vision, improve productive function, body defenses, and nervous system, support respiratory and immune systems, reduce obesity, protect the liver, and improve quality of sleep! So, how can you say “yes” to antioxidants and experience these advantages?
