Excess Free Radicals Are Very Dangerous To You

Mitochondria are responsible for producing energy for your body in the form of ATP, but the byproduct is the energy process by these mitochondria also contributes to disengage radicals. Although oxygen is vital to generate energy, 2-5% of the oxygen used in this energy production turns into loose radicals called superoxide anions and they are not good for your cells. In our cells, there are antioxidant enzymes like Superoxide Dismutase that can neutralize Superoxide Anions (Anion Superoxide) into Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide is a weaker free radical that is useful for your cells. Another antioxidant enzyme is Glutathione Peroxidase....
