Antioxidants

During progressive research on the possible metabolic roles that nutrients may play in addition to prevention of nutrient deficiency disorders, a group of vitamins, minerals and enzymes called antioxidants have been identified that protect the body from chemical damage.

Because free radicals damage biomolecules, they are responsible for ageing and causing diseases like cancer, degenerative diseases and environmental reactive contaminants. Oxygen itself also causes damage. Since both professional and recreational athletes are overexposed to more free radicals, it is very important that their diets contain the antioxidant nutrients for protection. Specifically, they protect against free radical damage and oxidation.

The reason why they are ideal is because they protect the bodys cells from the damage caused by free radicals and they also help repair cell damage brought about by these sources. Antioxidants also allow the bodys cells to remain healthy and strong. When the bodys cells are thriving, the immune system is performing at its peak, and there is a lesser chance of getting a disease or an infection. In addition, when the amount of cell damage in the body is reduced, the higher the chances are of preventing degenerative diseases associated with aging. Among these diseases are cancer, macular degeneration and Alzheimers disease.

Taking care of ones overall health by maintaining a balanced nutrition plan and regular exercise routine are the keys to great health and longevity. Do not use antioxidant supplements as a replacement for a healthy diet or conventional medical care, or as a reason to postpone seeing a doctor about a medical problem.
