8. Understanding the antioxidant defense system
FAQ
Free radicals are constantly produced in mitochondria.
Mitochondria are responsible for producing energy in the form of ATP (currency of energy in cells), but they also produce free radicals as a toxic by-product. Oxygen is critical in driving energy production. Unfortunately, 2-5% of the oxygen utilized in energy production converts into Free Radicals called Superoxide Anions.
 
 
Antioxidants protect our cells from free radical damage
Within our cells there are antioxidant enzymes such as Superoxide Dismutase that neutralizes a Superoxide Anion and converts
it into Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide is a weak free radical that is useful in cells. The immune system uses Hydrogen
Peroxide to kill bacteria and to signal to the rest of the immune system if there is an injury to tissue. Typically when acute H2O2
(Hydrogen Peroxide) is generated, this signals to our white blood cells to move to the damaged area.
