Compelling research during the past years has demonstrated and raised the public’s awareness of the importance of antioxidants in the maintenance of health and even in the prevention of degenerative disease. Indeed, research shows that low oxidative stress or the consumption of large amounts of broad-spectrum antioxidants in fruits, vegetables, some grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and supplement antioxidants is the other most likely reason CRON diets work. However, what exactly are antioxidants, and why are antioxidants so important for human health?

Appropriately named, antioxidants are a group of compounds produced by the body that occur naturally in many foods and in various amounts. They are invaluable substances because they soak up the toxic free radicals that are produced by the oxidation process in our bodies. Free radicals are chemically unstable molecules that attack your cells and damage your DNA. Oxidation is what causes an apple slice to turn brown, fish to become rancid, and a cut on our skin to become raw and inflamed. It happens to all cells in nature, including the ones in our bodies.
