If you want a visual on what type of damage free radicals can do, leave an apple slice or chunk of peeled banana on your counter. Anyone who’s done this knows it doesn’t take long for the fruit to start turning brown. What causes this? Free radicals.
Free radicals are atoms or molecules that have a single unpaired electron in an outer shell and are associated with oxidative damage. They are everywhere in the environment and we actually produce them ourselves as our bodies work to break down the foods we eat. One key reason a “balanced diet” is so important is so that we support our body’s ability to eliminate toxins created during the digestive process.
Eating foods rich in antioxidants is good but alkaline ionized water is also ANTIOXIDANT WATER.
