Understanding Free Radicals & Antibodies
How does our health depend on the antibodies and their war against free radicals?
Free radicals are simplified as a defective cell. Let’s say they are missing an arm and become violent and angry and reproduce equally damaged clones as they get more angry. These guys are found in excess and plethora in all unhealthy people, diseases, illnesses, cancers, auto immune, unhealthy seniors, etc. They create major inflammation and are found in all inflamed people. There are over 260 diseases caused by free radicals that we know of.
Normal cellular function and external stressors, like UV rays, cigarette smoke and environmental pollution, trigger the over development of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that wreak havoc with your body, destroying antibodies, damaging membrane, eating at your enzymes and DNA– or, as it’s more scientifically termed, causing ‘oxidative stress’. All areas of the body are vulnerable to free radical damage, causing inflammation and inevitably autoimmune disorders.
