Antioxidants and Free Radicals: What You Need to Know

Free Radicals might sound like the kind of band name you and your buddy, that guy with the keyboard and the bad perm, might have chosen back in the 80’s.  

Wanted: Easy-going electron with calming influence to tame unstable Free Radical.

It’s true to say that free radicals sound a lot cooler than they really are. Existing virtually everywhere in the modern world, free radicals are impossible to avoid.  To labor the 80’s band theme again, like an aging rock star who has lived a wild and toxic life on the road: free radicals are unstable, slightly unhinged molecules trying to hook up with a nice, calming electron to stabilize them and settle down with.

Oxidative Damage

But it doesn’t work like that.  When free radicals zero in on your healthy molecules to steal and pair up with electrons, it changes the structure of the molecule, causing oxidative damage.  Once a cell’s basic structure is harmed, it can’t function properly.  Free radical damage is linked to various health problems and age-related conditions, including:

  • Degenerative disease
  • Lung disease
  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Aging skin

No-one wants that, right?  But we’re under constant attack from free radicals present in UV rays, pollution, exhaust fumes and cigarette smoke.  We need to make sure that we’re getting vital antioxidants to take out the free radicals. Happily, Tyent Water is packed with them!  

The Positive and the Negative

Antioxidant water carries a negative electrical charge as a result of the ionization process inside your water ionizer.   Research shows that antioxidants utilize that negative charge to seek out and neutralize free radicals.  

“Antioxidants stop the chain reaction of free radical formation and benefit our health by boosting our immune system.”

  ~ Sandeep Prabhu, Ph.D.  Professor of Immunology and Molecular Toxicology, Penn State Cancer Institute

Antioxidant Foods

Antioxidants are essential to our well being.  While we can get them from certain foods such as those rich in vitamin C and beta carotene, drinking freshly ionized alkaline water full of antioxidant goodness is one of the best ways to make sure that you’re kicking those pesky free radicals to the curb!
