Free radicals (the same as Reactive Oxygen Species ROS) are chemically highly reactive molecules that indiscriminately attack human tissue and cause all kinds of problems, for example ageing, cancer, heart and arterial diseases, etc. The body copes with these by means of SOD (super oxide dismutase enzyme). During ageing or poor health SOD levels drop, and it is then that the diet should be rich in the antioxidants in order to help the body to cope with free radicals.
