Antioxidants are substances or nutrients that can help protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. Free radicals are formed as part of normal and natural processes in our body. Exposure to environmental factors such as smoking, pesticides, pollution, and radiation are some other ways that free radicals may enter the body. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and help to neutralize and prevent damage done by these free radicals. While the body naturally produces some antioxidants to neutralize free radicals, it may be less effective as we age. Antioxidants include some vitamins (such as Vitamins C, E, and beta-carotene) and some minerals (such as selenium).
