Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms that contain an unpaired electron and are therefore unstable and highly reactive.
In a process called oxidation, free radicals steal electrons from other compounds — fats, protein, cell membranes, and even DNA; altering the structure of the affected molecule.
Harmful blue light (from mobile devices, laptop, TV) induces free radical production, penetrating both eyes and skin.
Stress causes hormonal changes, which in turn produces free radicals.
Sun exposure generates free radicals that age the skin, causing roughness and wrinkles.
Processed food contains oxidised fats, increasing free radicals in our body.
Tobacco smoke contains many toxic chemicals and free radicals — one puff of cigarette causes up to 1 quadrillion free radicals.
Alcohol consumption produces free radicals that impair the body's normal defences.
Excessive glucose stimulates the production of free radicals in our body.
Haze carries a bulk of free radicals like carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide.
Skin inflammation (i.e. acne) produces free radicals. Our skin naturally produces hydrogen peroxide to attack the inflammation.
Cells naturally produce free radicals as a by-product of metabolism.
