DEBUNK THE JUNK: FREE RADICALS

DEBUNK THE JUNK: what are free radicals?

Free radicals are atoms that contain an unpaired electron. Without a stable number of outer shell electrons, they steal from other molecules and cause damage in the process.

Free radicals are generated in response to environmental insults, such as UV rays, and air pollution, but they are also a natural byproduct of normal cellular function.

Because free radicals are so pervasive, you need an adequate supply of antioxidants to disarm them. And because antioxidants become oxidized when they donate their electrons to stabilize free radicals, we must constantly restore our antioxidant reserves.

Your body naturally produces some powerful antioxidants, such as alpha lipoic acid and glutathione, and the foods we eat supply vitamins, flavonoids, carotenoids and other phytochemicals.

Support and protect the body by eating color fruits and vegetables and using LINNÉ as your first line of defense. RENEW face serum alone contains lycopene, beta carotene, rutin, ubiquinone, anthocyanin, and alpha lipoic acid. Don’t forget this essential step in your skincare arsenal.
