What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are substances that may protect your cells against the effects of free radicals — molecules or wastes produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation and other contaminants.  Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, and carotenoids, may help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.
