Oxidative stress and free radicals

Oxidation of oxygen is essential for most of the energy that humans need. But during metabolic reactions, when cells in the body convert food into energy, an uncontrolled production of oxygen free radicals (ORFs) takes place, damaging macromolecules (lipids, proteins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids) and affecting cellular processes.

An excess of free radicals breaks the balance leading to so-called oxidative stress. This happens especially in situations of intense exercise, due to exposure to some external agents such as ionising radiation or ultraviolet light, environmental pollution, tobacco smoke, etc. Oxidative damage has been involved in the cause of many diseases such as neuronal degeneration, cardiovascular diseases, etc. and also has an impact on the ageing process of the body.

Diets rich or enriched in antioxidants help to keep the oxidative balance
