In brief: Binding free radical

Free radicals are thought to be like chemical monsters and combine with other chemicals that can attack the body and cause cancer and heart disease.
The thinking is to get rid of the free radicals to reduce disease before it happens.

In brief: Remove oxidative str

Oxidative stress is the reason for developing high blood pressure, damage to various organs - antioxidants works by recycling these oxidative damage - almost like we sort the garbage so after recycling items amount of garbage is less and easier to dispose for the body.
