An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells. Antioxidants such as thiols or ascorbic acid (vitamin C) terminate these chain reactions.
Due to our eating habits, toxins can build up in the body over time. Using a detox supplement or cleanse can help rid the body of harmful toxins that have built up by bad eating and drinking habits.
