Concept : Defeating Free Radical Attack : Page 5 of 11

So oxidation causes free radicals and free radicals damage cells.

This explains why anti-oxidants are the body's defence against free radical damage.

The importance of anti-oxidants is underlined by the fact that unstable free radicals behave very aggressively towards biological tissues, ransacking them for replacement electrons.

This can create yet more unpaired electrons and thus more free radicals.

Chain reactions of destruction can occur where thousands of free radicals can be generated in seconds, unless the body's defences catch them in time. And to do that your body needs to have strong anti-oxidant defences - in the same way as it also needs a strong immune system.
