Antioxidant Functions Of Vitamins
Jane Tan, Senior Coach of NewAgeTaichi, Copyright 2008
(WORD COUNT: 222)

Various oxidation reactions in the body create substance call free radicals. Free radicals are actually chemical substances that contain a lone, unpaired electron in the outer orbit. The superoxide radical and hydroxyl radical are true free radicals. Two other related substances, referred to as non-radical oxygen species, are hydrogen peroxide and singlet oxygen.

Free radicals are unstable compounds, which possess an unbalance magnetic field that affects molecular structure and chemical reactions in the body and that free radical may be very reactive with body tissues. While oxidation processes are vital to life, certain oxidations may cause cellular damage by oxidation of unsaturated fats in cellular and sub cellular membranes and free radicals may cause such undesirable oxidations.

Halliwell (Halliwell, B, 1996) indicted that free radicals may harm DNA, lipids, protein, and other molecules, and could be involved in the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and possibly neurodegenerative disease. Fortunately, while free radicals are formed naturally in the body, body cells produce a number of antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, and catalase, which help to neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage.

In order to function properly, these enzymes which are often referred to as free radical-scavenging enzymes must contain certain nutrients such as copper, zinc, and selenium. Comparable to these enzymes, vitamins E, C and beta-carotene posses antioxidant properties.
