Antioxidants 7 July 2012

Anti-oxidants neutralise excessive free radicals.
We get them from plants but we also rely on our own system.
Our bodies have 3 main intrinsic antioxidant sytems:
1. Glutathione- 1st line of defence. Used up quickly. Synthesised from methionine and NAC.
2. Metallothioneins- made of of 7 zinc atoms. Natures back up system to gutathione. Expressed when needed (oxidised, used glutathione turns it on).
3. Selenium. Obtained from food.
