Antioxidants offer
protection to the body from free radicals

What are antioxidants?

The Antioxidants are substances which counteract oxidation. Their primary role is to protect the body's cells from so-called free radicals, or aggressive substances generated in the body during the processes of oxidation, for example when nutrients release energy. Free radicals are also present in cigarette smoke and polluted air.

Thanks to these antioxidants, free radicals are rendered harmless. They are part of a group of substances with antioxidant qualities, such as vitamins C and E and the minerals selenium and zinc.

Antioxidants in the diet

The antioxidants are naturally contained in all types of food. They are particularly abundant in vegetables, fruits and nuts but are also found in red wine, tea and chocolate. Antioxidants are important in the diet for the optimal functioning of vitamin C and vitamin E, as well as chromium and zinc minerals.

Currently, antioxidants are also added to products such as yoghurt drinks, because of their positive effects on health.

The Antioxidant effect

Antioxidants are essential to ensure a healthy metabolism. They are present in all body cells.

The latter, as previously mentioned, are protected from free radicals thanks to a series of enzymes, antioxidants and the antioxidant action of certain nutrients such as vitamin E.
