Boost your antioxidant LEVEL and maintain your health with these supplements from Holland & Barrett

Building up your antioxidant level is essential to help your body prevent damage to the cells caused by free radicals.

Free radicals occur when the cell molecules break up causing weakness and instability. Each free radical, clings onto the nearest healthy molecule and causes it to become a free radical as well, causing a chain reaction.

Taking the right supplements can help slow and prevent free radicals from taking over and damaging the body.

What Are Antioxidants

Antioxidants are believed to play a role in preventing the development of chronic and degenerative diseases such as cancer, coronary heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and macular degeneration.

Free radicals are natural by-products and cause no problems if kept in balance with antioxidants neutralising them. Our antioxidant systems are not perfect. As we age, damage of body cells by oxidation accumulates and we need more antioxidants to fight the free radicals.

Well-known foods with antioxidant properties are oranges, berries and grapes.
