While it is essential to life, oxygen can also have a detrimental effect on your health. As your body’s cells use oxygen to create energy, they also create a potentially damaging byproduct called free radicals.
WHAT ARE FREE RADICALS?
Free radicals are organic atoms or molecules that have an unpaired electron in their outer cellular ring. Since electrons have a tendency to exist in pairs, free radicals become unstable and latch on to electrons from other atoms and molecules in your body. This cycle creates a biological chain reaction that can damage cell membranes, accelerate the aging process, and contribute to certain ailments. Stress, lack of sleep, a poor diet, UV radiation, exercise, and pollution can all contribute to the formation of free radicals.
These unstable atoms can lead to a physiological imbalance in your body called oxidative stress. When this occurs, your body is unable to counter the damaging effects caused by these rogue molecules. This can be demonstrated by cutting an apple in half. As the fruit is exposed to air, it starts to turn brown. On a cellular level, the oxygen in the air is interacting with the cell wall of the apple’s tissues, creating free radicals.
WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS?
Antioxidants are molecules capable of preventing free radicals from damaging healthy, functioning cells. By donating an electron to these unstable molecules, antioxidants help terminate this chain reaction before crucial damage occurs. Though your body inherently creates some antioxidants, these life-protecting phytonutrients are generally found in richly pigmented fruits and vegetables. While thousands of antioxidants are found in nature, polyphenols and flavonoids (a class of polyphenols) are two of the most effective.
WHAT ARE POLYPHENOLS?
Polyphenols are natural chemicals responsible for the color, flavor, and scent in fruits and vegetables. Deeply pigmented berries such as açai are especially high in these antioxidant compounds. Found mostly in the outer layer of fruits, polyphenols offer protection from harmful bacteria and ultraviolet light. In humans, polyphenols protect your body from oxidative damage and support cardiovascular health.
POWERFUL NUTRIENTS FIGHT AGAINST AGING
The MonaVie premier juice blends contain powerful nutrients that aid your body in the fight against aging and other symptoms of oxidative stress. In fact, just four ounces provide you with the antioxidant capacity of approximately 13 servings of common fruits and vegetables.
