Antioxidants protect the body from free radical damage that is caused by exposure to harmful chemicals. This includes environmental pollutants and chemicals that are ingested in packaged food and drinks that have preservatives, food colour, flavours and other additives. There are also chemicals that are a byproduct of normal metabolic processes. One of the greatest benefits of antioxidants is protecting the body against these chemicals. Antioxidants can be found in food and supplements.
