-Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body.
-When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage.
-Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals.
