-  What is Aging

Antioxidant is a chemical substance that will donate an electrical charged electron to a free radical without creating an unpaired molecule by itself.

  • Free Radicals damage cells and causing aging
  • Antioxidants prevent cells from free radical attacks
  • Antioxidants help delays aging  


Wearing a seat belt doesn't give you a license to drive recklessly, it just protects you in case of an accident. Vitamin supplements work the same way: they don't give you a license to eat poorly and otherwise abuse your health, but provide an added cushion of protection.
