Antioxidants: Vitamins C and E for Health
One of the most important medical advances of the last few decades is a new understanding of the ways by which human body is damaged and weakened, making it susceptible to a wide range of diseases.
Most diseases result from damage to our body cells and tissues. This damage is caused by enormously destructive chemical groups called free radicals. These free radicals are constantly attacking body protein cells, and even DNA, causing potentially serious damage. Free radicals have been implicated in some of the most serious conditions, such as heart diseases, strokes, kidney damage, and possibly cancer. They are even partly responsible for human ageing.
The good news. Medical research has established that free radicals can be effectively combated. This is where the antioxidant vitamins come in. Free radicals can be limited, and even prevented, by taking large, but perfectly safe, doses of antioxidant vitamins C and E. Anti-oxidants are recognized as one of the most powerful weapons to counter the damage of free radicals. They are of vital importance to our health. They not only offer protection against disease, but also promote good health.
