The power of antioxidants

  1. 1. • Antioxidants are helpful on so many levels because they help the body defend itself against harmful free radicals. Because of this, antioxidants help your body both inside and out. With so much pollution, carcinogens, viruses, and bacteria to stand up against, your body could really use the additional help obtained from antioxidants The Power of Antioxidants
  2. 2. Vine Vera has taken advantage of the useful properties of antioxidants by creating their skin care products steeped in Resveratrol. Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant which is found mostly in red wine and red grapes. Vine Vera Skin Care products are infused with Resveratrol.
  3. 3. Simple Science Lesson in Antioxidants • Once you understand the science behind antioxidants and free radicals, it is easy to understand why foods and products with antioxidants have become so popular. Antioxidants work on a molecular level, so that is where to begin. Remember that atoms have neutrons, protons, and electrons. Electrons surround the nucleus, playing a large part in determining how an atom behaves and bonds to other molecules.
  4. 4. Free radicals occur when these bonds split. Usually when bonds split, both molecules come away with the correct amount of electrons to keep it stable. But sometimes when weaker bonds break, free radicals are born
  5. 5. The unstable entities immediately attack the surrounding molecules, trying to capture one of their electrons. Once a free radical has stolen an electron, the victim molecule becomes a free radical and so on and so on. If left unchecked, this chain reaction can eventually damage a living cell.
  6. 6. Antioxidants: The Body’s Super Hero
  7. 7. Although the body should be able to manage and offset a moderate amount of free radicals, sometimes the free radical is too great and more antioxidants would help. Antioxidants can give a free radical one of its own electrons without the risk of becoming a free radical themselves. This puts a stop to the whole electron stealing chain reaction.
