Antioxidants are thought to play a role in reducing the effects of aging as well as reducing the risks of heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes, and cancer. They work by counteracting oxidation which occurs naturally when free-radicals (by-products of our consumption of oxygen) interact with our cells. The results of these interactions causes cellular damage and is one of the contributing factors of aging over time. Antioxidants work by attracting free-radicals and reacting with them to form more-stable molecules which do not interact with healthy cells. The Antioxidant product with A, C, E and Selenium contains commonly known antioxidants (Vitamins A, C, E, Zinc and Selenium). This product is more cost effective than the Super Antioxidant product which contains additional classes of antioxidants.
