Free Radicals Scavenging Your Body

Free Radicals Scavenging Your Body

What are Free Radicals?free radicals and antioxidants

You have probably heard the terms “free radicals” and “anti-oxidants”, but do you know what they really mean? Free radicals are unstable oxygen atoms that cause oxidation in our bodies, which can exacerbate the aging process. To understand the effects of free radicals and oxidation, think of an apple after it has been sliced open. As the oxygen in the air comes into contact with the surface of the apple, it begins to turn brown. Another similar effect can be observed when metal is left out in the sun – it begins to rust. This rusting is oxidation, and that is exactly what is happening when free radicals enter our bodies.

Thankfully, changing the water you drink can help drastically ! Kangen Water® is a delicious drinking water that is also a free radical scavenger and can act as an essential component in maintaining optimal health and hydration.
