The antioxidant is a molecule which prevents oxidation, a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to a chain reaction that may destroy or damage cells. While oxygen is vital for aerobic organisms, it produces reactive oxygen species and causes oxidative stress, a common process induced by various stressful conditions and circumstances.
Antioxidants can be segmented into two types: Natural antioxidants and Synthetic antioxidants. There are primarily three types of natural antioxidants found in nature that include antioxidant enzymes, antioxidants vitamins, and antioxidant photo-chemicals.
