Antioxidants, like those found in Trans-Resveratrol, help protect the body from free radical damage, or oxidation. Our bodies can be exposed to free radicals from our internal reactions like in energy production, or external sources like chemical exposure from pesticides, air and water pollution, alcohol and tobacco. As these free radicals move through our bodies, they can cause damage. Think of it as a bit like rusting. Antioxidants of various types can bind to the free radicals, limiting the amount of damage that can occur. Antioxidants can decrease damage in our cardiovascular system and are helpful in preventing premature ageing. They also aid our immune system in its proper functioning.
