What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are compounds that have the capacity to neutralize reactive oxygen species. Oxygen free radicals generated by oxidative and other biochemical pathways are the main cause for a number of degenerative diseases. Antioxidants act as radical scavengers, and convert the radicals to less reactive species. The imblanace due to the presence of excess free radicals and lower antioxidants causes oxidative stress and many chronic health problems such as cancer, atherosclerosis, myocardial infraction, senile cataracts, and rheumatoid arthritis.
