Antioxidants –

guards against free radicals

Our bodies have evolved several lines of antioxidant defense against free radicals. Antioxidants are able to interact with and reduce free radicals. By donating electrons, antioxidants convert the radicals to stable, nontoxic metabolites.

Both individual antioxidants and antioxidant enzyme systems are important in free-radical scavenging. Four of the major antioxidants are essential micronutrients (vitamins C, E, betacarotene, cysteine), while two can be synthesized in limited amounts by the body (glutathione and coenzyme Q10). Riboflavin and the trace elements selenium, copper, zinc, manganese, and iron are essential components of the major antioxidant enzymes.

Most antioxidants scavenge free radicals by donating an electron. In the process the antioxidant is oxidized. For this reason the body’s antioxidant reserves must be continually replenished. Antioxidants work in concert and their actions are synergistic. Vitamin E and selenium both enhance the antioxidant actions of the other. Vitamin C, coenzyme Q10, and glutathione peroxidase regenerate tocopherol that is oxidized, thereby recycling vitamin E for reuse by tissues. Vitamin C or selenium deficiencies therefore sharply increase requirements for vitamin E and increase risk of vitamin E deficiency. A complete and balanced supply of all the major antioxidants is important.
