We asked expert Paul Gurney, co-founder of Greenbox.

“There are billions of billions of cells in our body, and every day they are threatened by multiple enemies,” the specialist explains to Cover Media. “These enemies are called free radicals, ie chemical by-products of the body’s natural process of converting food into energy. Physical activity, exposure to smog or sunlight can also create free radicals ».

If left unchecked, free radicals can cause major damage to cells. This, in turn, helps speed up the aging process and the development of chronic diseases, for example brain decline, tumors, heart disease, and weaken the immune system.

The excessive presence of free radicals is called oxidative stress, and the important job of antioxidants is to help fight it.

“What’s more, antioxidants also help repair DNA and improve our overall health,” Gurney continues.

The expert recommends KannaSwiss Daily Booster Shots supplements and Wunder Workshop’s Mylk Latte or Turmeric Tea, with turmeric.
