Antioxidants are organic chemical compounds which include mainly carotenoids (xanthophylls and carotenes) as well as polyphenols (flavonoids, anthocyanins, phenolic acids, stilbenes and lignans). They are commonly found in fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, spices, herbs and cereals. They play a key role in maintaining the oxidoreductive balance in the body. They operate using various mechanisms – they prevent oxidation reactions, neutralize free radicals, suppress singlet oxygen, and reduce the intensity of oxidative stress.
Antioxidants show a wide range of biological activity and they are crucial for maintaining health and normal functions of the body. Thanks to their systemic activity, they provide anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-cancer and anti-aging effects. They are an effective tool in the prevention of civilization diseases, they help to prolong life and may also improve its quality.
Enriching the diet with antioxidants is recommended especially for people who do not pay attention to daily nutrition, use ready-made processed products, eat very little vegetables and fruits. It is also an excellent option for residents of large, polluted cities, heavy smokers and those exposed to frequent contact with toxins. Preparations from this category should be prophylactically used by people at higher risk of cardiovascular and cancer diseases.
