RESEARCH

What’s “Antioxidants” ?

Antioxidants are chemicals that prevent oxidative stress inside living cells, by chemically blocking oxidation reactions. The antioxidant content of tea could mean that drinking three or more cups a day could reduce the risk of a wide range of health problems, ranging from cancer to heart disease, and may even be healthier than water.
