We’re on a mission to stay healthy. And our bodies are on our side. Our own bodies are so full of wisdom that the more we learn about staying healthy, the more we can support our natural, built-in protective systems.
First, we need to understand that our health and wellbeing rely entirely on our cellular health. Every lifestyle choice we make will have an impact on our health. And here’s the reason why: Our cells possess cellular memory. They remember what you’ve done and recompose themselves in the same pattern, be it beneficial or harmful. So we want to take care with our cells!
What makes the free radical a menace? There’s a Free Radical Theory on Aging (FRTA)+ that suggests oxidative free radicals can cause extensive cellular damage brought on by excessive oxidative stress. The reason why some molecules go radical is not completely understood. Free radicals are harmful, out of control and a bad influence on our good cells. Like wannabe gang members, they join forces with other bad-doers brought on by harmful lifestyle choices such as excessive smoking, alcohol consumption, fat intake and high exposure to UV rays, only to be further aggravated by environmental factors such as food preservatives, herbicides, pesticides, pollution and more. All of which trigger a free radical reaction.
What are free radicals and how do they affect your health on a cellular level?
Trillions of cells are pulsing through your body, so as you can imagine, they are extremely small living organisms. Yet they are the foundation on which your health and wellbeing are built. Each has a designated function, one of which is converting nutrients into energy.
