How can Free Radical’s ‘existence’ be relevant to our everyday life?
The Free radical’s ‘existence’ is a vital information for our immune system to detect if there are any current threats within our body.

Free Radicals are known to be that main cause of chronic pains, and inflammatory response. These life threatening agents are commonly produced by what you use in everyday life, like EMFs, Wi-Fi, digital devices, and radiation; a result of exposure to environmental factors, like pollution, pesticides, tobacco smoke, industrial chemicals/cleaners, and solar radiation; or emotional sources like stress and depression.

But did you know that the very existence of free radicals can also help reduce the risk of diseases, in general? Think. If there are no Free Radicals in our system then what threat will our immune system eliminate?

We are not saying that the immune system will lose its purpose, but the opposite. The body has a sign that it uses to detect any foreign threats entering the body. If that sign would be invisible to your body’s internal security then they won’t be able to detect if there are any current risks. That’s where free radical comes in. Our Immune system uses the existence of free radicals as a mark/sign against foreign threat within the body. Another factor would be, if scientists would be oblivious to the existence of free radicals, they would probably have a hard time creating vaccines to defeat these menacing diseases.

In conclusion, although free radicals inside our body are not really healthy, knowing about their existence will help us and our immune system to find a way to eliminate them. In addition, free radicals, by definition, are harmful by-products of the natural cell metabolism that occurs in the human body on a continuous basis; they are naturally produced by the molecules within cells during food digestion. Thus, there is no way to ultimately eliminate these free radical, but what we can do is to minimize their number to the lowest margin to avoid permanent risks.

And to help diminish these free radicals, we’ve come up with a list of antioxidant-rich foods that you can choose from.
