Antioxidants 101

What's so great about antioxidants? Antioxidants are important for your body and your overall health. Let’s break down what they do:

Smoking, a poor diet, alcohol, air pollution, and overexposure to sunlight produce molecules called free radicals.1 Problems can arise when there is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and your body’s ability to neutralize them.2 Antioxidants help protect against free radicals that can cause your cells damage.3

Antioxidants can be found in many fruits and vegetables, as well as supplements. If you’re looking for antioxidant supplements, 4Life has a whole family of antioxidant-rich products with immune-boosting benefits. Plus, we have a surprise!
