Role of Antioxidant as an immunity booster?
Dieticians/Nutritionists recommends colourful, balanced diet having rich sources of antioxidants that removes free radicals to boost immunity.
Free radicals are molecule containing oxygen but have an uneven number of electrons. Imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals in our body causes Oxidative Stress. Overproduction of oxidative stress in our body can induce inflammatory responses like redness, swelling, pain, and increase in temperature. Long-term oxidative stress damages the body’s cells, proteins, and DNA.
