Free radicals are constantly being formed in our body. Free radicals are by-products produced when our body breaks down food (especially unhealthy diet – high in sugar and bad fat), exposure to tobacco smoke and radiation, infection, air pollution, excessive alcohol intake, lack of sleep, and excessive stress.

Free radicals can cause significant damage to our cells and tissues, and this long-term damage to your body, which you are not aware of, may lead to ageing, formation of plaque in blood vessels, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancers and kidney diseases.

Evaluate yourselves and let us know if you have AT LEAST ONE of the causes that increase your free radicals.

  • Merokok
  • Physical activity
  • Poor diet (high sugar and fat)
  • Lack of sleep
  • Air pollution
  • Medication & treatment
  • Excessive stress
  • Expose to radiation
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Expose to toxin (pesticides and cleaners)

Antioxidants, which are abundant in our daily diets, are shown to have the ability to maintain the free radicals at the safe level.
It neutralizes free radicals which prevent and halt the progression of oxidative stress-related diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and inflammation.
