Free radicals are atoms or molecules that have one or more unpaired electrons making them ‘reactive’ with other atoms or molecules creating cellular injury. When the free radical molecule involves oxygen, we call it a REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES (ROS). ROS is a free radical.
Free radical production can be attributed to the following:
- The production of energy from the food we eat is a source of free radicals.
- 2-5% of the oxygen we breathe is converted to Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) free radicals. In other words even at rest, we are producing ROS.
- The more oxygen we consume, the greater the amount of ROS we produce. This is especially true in athletes or people with a more active lifestyle.
The body has several antioxidants to combat these Reactive Oxygen Species. An anti-oxidant is a vital molecule that has the ability to deactivate ROS.
Lamelle Research Laboratories offers the most comprehensive free radical protection system against free radical damage. Nourish provides significant reduction in free radical injury, reduction of premature photoageing, preservation of the skin immune response and restoration of the natural skin antioxidant defence systems.
