What are Free Radicals?

What are Free Radicals?
Free radicals are continuously released in our body; when breaking down nutrients, for example. Free radicals have only one electron instead of two. You need free radicals in your body, because they bind to unhealthy cells and pathogens to clean them up. The free radicals are constantly looking for cells to live on. If you have too much free radicals, this causes a lot of unrest.

Too many free radicals
In addition to the positive function of free radicals, they can also cause a lot of damage. If there are too many free radicals, they will also bind to healthy cells, attack the cells and can even destroy them. This is called oxidation.
This oxidation plays a major role in skin aging, as it causes DNA damage and even affects connective tissue. As a result, the elasticity and firmness of the skin decreases and wrinkles will become visible sooner. In addition to wrinkles, oxidation can also cause pigment spots. 

Vitamin C and E
Vitamins C and E are the most well-known fighters of free radicals. You need vitamin C for the production of collagen, it also contributes to the improvement of the skin barrier. Vitamins C and E also protect the skin against UV damage. Vitamin C and E can stabilize the overproduction of melanin and thus suppress pigment spots.
