Nutrition Q & A
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are certain vitamins and minerals that help protect the body from harmful molecules called free radicals. Free radicals form in the body naturally, but they can also form from exposure to smoking, pesticides, pollution, and radiation. Antioxidants help neutralize these molecules and prevent them from damaging other cells. While the body produces some antioxidants naturally, the process may be less effective as we age. Many BOOST® Drinks include antioxidants such as vitamins C & E, beta-carotene, and selenium
