VIEW—The Science of Antioxidants Part 2
Why do you want to measure antioxidants?
One of the problems with antioxidants is that we can’t really “feel” them working in our bodies. We don’t wake up in the morning and say, “Wow, my antioxidant levels feel great today!” We often can’t “feel” the balance between damaging free radicals and protective antioxidants until there is enough free radical damage to result in a health problem. Before VIEW, people had to take their antioxidant supplements “on faith” – hoping and praying that they were working, but never really knowing if those nutrients were actually getting into their body and doing any good.
