Dear Pharma friends,
Have we ever wondered what is common in -
Fruits like grapes, oranges, plums, pineapple etc.
Vegetables like spinach, lemon, ginger, beetroot, red cabbage etc.
Dry fruits like plums, apricot etc. Legumes like walnut, groundnut etc. Cereals like barley, oats, corn etc. Spices like pepper, cinnamon, cloves etc.
All the above items contain substances called "antioxidants". Antioxidants are basically body's scavengers. They help in neutralizing the damage caused by free radicals (present in the oxygen we inhale because of pollution, smog, chemicals and in few other form) to our cells and tissues. These free radicals if left unchecked in the body can cause arthritis, heart ailments and even cancer. With this in view, "Pharma Wings" take the pleasure to have an extensive discussion on the topic "Antioxidants" this month. I hope by the end of this month, we would not only be able to understanding this topic in the proper perspective but also neutralize the free radicals present in our body by consuming antioxidants rich food.
