How to reduce the oxidative stress?
Have you ever heard about oxidative stress? Oxidative stress increases when we are exposed to stress, toxins and infections. It is also increased by the intake of sugar and chemicals. If we can avoid the above, we are most likely protecting our cells. We can fight stress at work and at home with physical activity, from which running is the most recommended. We reduce the intake of chemicals and toxins by watching what we eat, such as consuming as much natural food and drinks as possible, and by avoiding artificially processed foods that contain chemical additives.
What is oxidative stress?
Oxidation is a process occurring on a cellular level, when the cells metabolize inhaled oxygen and by that get energy. At the same time, free radicals are being formed, which when in contact with molecules in our cells can cause stress and cell damage.
