What are antioksidants?

The easiest way to explain what an antioxidant is- and how it works, is to ask you to cut an apple in half. Leave one half exposed to the air in the room. After a short time you will see the cutting surface becoming brown – the oxidation process is underway.  Dip the other half of the apple in eg. lemon or orange juice and be amazed how effective vitamin C slows the oxidation process!
