In beginning this regimen, I’ve done quite a bit of research into supplements, vitamins, etc. And a word that I’ve come across several times is the word “antioxidants.” Things that contain antioxidants are apparently good for you. But, why? You may already know this. But since I didn’t and had to learn about it, I thought I’d share with you my newfound knowledge. :-)
Breaking the word down, we get “anti”, which means against, and oxidants. An oxidant is very specifically defined as a chemical agent that oxidizes. Yeah? So?
