Whats All This Talk About Free Radicals?

The human body is composed of many different types of cells. Cells are composed of many different types of molecules. Molecules are composed of electrons. Free radicals are the molecules within our bodies responsible for the progression of aging and deterioration. A free radical is an unstable molecule that is missing an electron. In order to repair itself and become stable, it needs to steal an electron from another molecule. In doing so, this free radical damages the stable molecule and creates another free radical in a vicious chain reaction of cellular destruction.

Free radicals attack us from many different environmental sources - alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs, smoked and barbecued food, harmful chemicals and additives in the foods we eat, UV exposure and pollutants in the air we breathe.

These radicals wage suicide against healthy skin and assault your cells. If you are past the age of 28 the major source of aging is the production of free radicals.

Antioxidants are exactly what free radicals need in order to become safe for your cells.

Two of the very best antioxidants are Vitamin E and Vitamin C, both naturally found in many fruits and vegetables. Thay are also found in L'Bri Pure n' Natural Products.
