The SECRET to living life clear, calm, and clean.

Oxidative Stress

  • An excess of free radicals causes oxidative stress.
  • Science articles demonstrate the importance of reducing oxidative stress.
  • In living life to the fullest our bodies generate oxidative stress–a physiological imbalance between free radicals and the body’s antioxidant defense system.

Free Radicals

Why Free Radicals are Harmful to the BodyFree radicals are highly unstable, reactive molecules with an unsatisfied electron pair. They scavenge the body in search of electrons, thereby damaging cells, proteins and DNA.

Free radicals arise from both internal and external sources, including breathing, metabolism, inflammation, pollution, sunlight, exercise, smoking and consuming alcohol.

Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals are inadequately neutralized by the body's antioxidant defense system, or when they overwhelm antioxidants.
