Antioxidants and antioxidants – where can we find the most of them?
Everyone’s body contains free radicals (oxidants) that cannot be eliminated. However, there are ways to reduce their amount. Help comes from antioxidants, which are the guardians of a youthful appearance. They have strong antioxidant properties and prevent the appearance of signs of ageing in the form of the hated wrinkles. Many factors contribute to the excessive production of free radicals, but you can neutralize their harmful effects by increasing the supply of antioxidants in your diet. They are found in many foods, and in addition, you can take antioxidant supplements.
What are antioxidants? What types are there?
Stress, an unbalanced diet, lack of exercise or excessive physical exertion, alcohol consumption, polluted air and intense sunbathing are enough to create large amounts of free radicals. These are severe problems as they wreak havoc throughout the body. This can be counteracted with the help of antioxidants. Several vitamins and minerals have antioxidant properties: vitamin C and E, vitamin A, selenium, zinc, copper, manganese and even Coenzyme Q10. There are many types of antioxidants. They have slightly different properties and perform different functions in the body. Non-enzymatic antioxidants include vitamins, coenzymes and carotenoids. Enzymatic antioxidants such as catalase are also found in the body. Antioxidant solid properties have polyphenols found in large quantities in fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Antioxidants include beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene and glutathione.
