The science of free radical chemistry is well known,
with a focus on the important balance between free radicals and antioxidants for optimal physical health and function. When free radicals overpower a body’s capability to safely regulate itself, then oxidative stress occurs, adversely affecting our DNA, proteins and lipids. This oxidative stress can trigger a variety of diseases.
