One of the biggest beauty secrets of looking young is aggressively fighting free radicals. These destructive agents not only endanger the overall health of the body, they may cause premature aging of skin, hair and nails.

In order to hold onto beauty and youth it's critical to aggressively fight back the advances of these naturally produced molecules which are triggered by both internal and external sources.

If free radicals overwhelm the body's natural protective layers, the result can be a wide range of illnesses from minor to life-threatening.

Nutritional Supplements - Beauty Secrets Of Looking Young

Although controversial, many researchers believe consistent use of antioxidants and related nutritional supplements are truly the magical beauty secrets of looking young.  How?  Many beauty and health benefits have been linked to the use of antioxidants including, but not limited to:

- Boosting the immune system which helps the body successfully fight against a wide range of diseases.

- Protecting the skin, scalp and hair from a wide range of environmental toxins including wrinkle triggering sun damage.

- Reducing the risk of joint damage, degeneration and the development of osteoarthritis or related diseases.

- Increasing the body's natural defenses against the development of lung diseases like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

- Helping to reduce the risk of a range of eye problems including macular degeneration and/or long term vision deterioration.

- Amping up protective defenses of the body when exposed to a wide range of pollution and related toxins including second hand smoke.

They also believe it will help to naturally decrease the risk of some types of cancer.

Antioxidants - Supplements Behind Beauty Secrets Of Looking Young

In simple terms, antioxidants are molecules which inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction which transfers electrons or hydrogen from a substance to an oxidizing agent.  Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals which may start chain reactions.  When chain reactions occur in a cell, it may cause damage or death to the cell.

Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions.  They do this by being oxidized themselves, so antioxidants are often reducing agents such as thiols, ascorbic acid, or poly-phenols.
