Free radicals are unstable molecules created by poor diet, stress, pesticides, pollution, electronic devices and even naturally via excessive sunlight and exercise. Free radicals attach themselves to stable molecules within the body, damaging surrounding cells. After a stable molecule loses its electron it becomes a free radical. This continuous chain results in cellular damage to the body, allowing disease and premature degeneration to take place. For example, inhaling just once from a cigarette causes 375,000 free radical cells! Think of free radical damage as rusting from the inside out.
The proliferation of free radicals has been linked to over 80 health conditions. Antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals by donating one of their electrons. Of course, once the antioxidant donates its electron, it becomes a weaker free radical itself (in search of another electron). Vitamin C, Beta-carotene, Selenium, Chromium Picolinate are commonly known antioxidants, allbethey weak ones, as these compounds only give up one electron before becoming a weak free radical themselves. Your body needs more protection. Coral Calcium is a superior natural antioxidant.
