Free radicals and aging

Many of the health problems are caused by free radicals. They not only attack human cells, but also render them inoperable.

Many diseases occur, the organs are affected and the cells degenerate, creating dreaded cancer. However, cells can be protected by free radical scavengers, antioxidants.

Our cells are under constant attack

Free radicals oxygen-containing molecules are referenced to have dangerous instability, as they lack an electron in their chemical structure, causing them to constantly be looking for an electron to replenish.

To find the missing electron, they ruthlessly march through the body and attack any “victim”. They tear off the electron from an intact molecule, this process is also called oxidation. Oxidation puts pressure on the body.

An extraordinary load is converted into oxidative stress, which is an enormously damaging process for the body.

The problem

Since the stolen molecule now lacks an electron, it becomes an unstable molecule and is also looking for a victim from whom it can steal an electron. A vicious circle that begins to run in the body.

Complaints, symptoms, or classic diseases are fatigue, varicose veins, high blood pressure, as well as eye or joint problems.

Dementia, stroke, and cancer are also caused due to a lack of antioxidants. The body is permanently stressed, cells degenerate and diseases arise.

Today’s dangers

People smoke, drink alcohol, eat fast food, and are in congested areas with an extremely high volume of traffic. These are all factors that are extremely harmful to the body.

According to estimates, 100 billion cells in the body are attacked every day. In order to master the “radical process”, you must be careful to consume enough antioxidants.

Exactly, that is the counterpart of unstable molecules, which only search for electrons and therefore cause damage when they attack cells and cause their instability, tearing apart the molecules.

A balanced diet

The current diet consists mainly of cereals, meat, and milk, which provide enough nutrients, carbohydrates, fats, and protein, but only contain small amounts of antioxidants.

People get sick through the mouth, even though they think they live or follow a healthy diet.

The problem is that the rich selection of vegetables and seedlings is missing, as well as wild fruits and plants.

Even natural fats or oils are only offered to a small extent. However, it would be exactly those foods that would be valuable providers of antioxidants so that the body can fight unstable molecules or that the molecules cannot become unstable.

What antioxidants are there?

Vitamin C may come to mind first, which is correct on the one hand, but on the other hand, it should be mentioned that vitamin C has only a low antioxidant effect.

An apple that contains only 10 milligrams of vitamin C has a tremendous antioxidant effect. This shows that the apple also contains many other substances, so it has a strong antioxidant effect.

The antioxidant group includes phytochemicals and enzymes, with isoflavones, flavonoids, polyphenols, and anthocyanins among classic antioxidant providers.

The largest groups of antioxidants include vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements, and phytochemicals. Only by consuming enough antioxidants can you prevent disease and prevent oxidative stress.

Especially nowadays it is extremely important to absorb enough positive energy to be prepared for the daily pollutants.
