Fight Oxidation with Polyphenol Foods
Oxidation is the process where oxygen metabolizes where free radicals are released.
Free radicals take electrons from other molecules causing damage to DNA, lipids and cell membranes.
Oxidative stress is one of the prime causes of inflammation which in turn increases the risk of diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Polyphenols are strong antioxidants sourced from plants. These antioxidants lower oxidative stress and so prevent the associated oxidative diseases.
