What actually is oxidative stress and what are antioxidants and how do they support the body?
You have probably heard of the so-called "free radicals" - free radicals are organic compounds or oxygen molecules that are automatically produced in your body as an intermediate product in metabolism. Free radicals are constantly released in your cells. From a chemical point of view, these compounds are extremely reactive, i.e. they enter into compounds with other atoms or molecules and in the process withdraw electrons from them.
