Do you know what antioxidants are? Why are they important to your body?


Antioxidants are substances that can prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals.


Wait. But, what are free radicals?


Free radicals are waste substances produced by cells as the body processes food and reacts to the environment. If the body cannot process and remove free radicals efficiently, oxidative stress can result. This can harm cells and body function.


Antioxidants fight ‘free-radicals’ which are the causes of many health problems and are produced, among others, due to stress, processed food, smoking, alcohol intake, viral infections, and even caused by UV light and pollution.


Ensuring a good amount of antioxidants in your diet can reduce the chances of cancer, lower high blood pressure, improve wrinkles and help your heart stay healthy amongst many other benefits.


Antioxidants are said to help neutralize free radicals in our bodies, and this is thought to boost overall health.


That is why a supplement like Wonder Maka can help you get the antioxidants your body needs.
