Free Radicals / Antioxidants - Dr. Denham Harman
Reprinted by permission from Dusty R. Green, M.Ed., Research Scientist & Author of Smart Eats, Smart Supplements, and Smart Exercise

In 1956, Dr. Denham Harman of The University of Nebraska developed the free radical theory.  Free radicals are oxygen molecules that cannot find a mate and are mean little things.  They can and destroy anything in their path.  Rusting metal and rotting fruit are examples of the free radical activity that goes on outside of our bodies.  Free radicals can equally cause problems inside our bodies.  You do not feel the damage that is taking place inside of you, however, it is ever-present.  Then it may be too late.  In addition, high body fat percentages contribute to much higher incidences of free radical damage.

Antioxidants = Free Radical Scavengers
We have known for decades how to stop free radical activity.  Most vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and herbs are the best known free radical fighters.  They are also called antioxidants.  The ones that are not direct free radical fighters have other jobs that directly or indirectly help the antioxidants.  They are all synergistic, meaning they do a much better job when they have each other than when they are ingested alone.

Supplementing vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and herbs in the manner to neutralize free radicals is virtually unknown to most people.  Or, the information is not well known by our traditional American Medical establishment.  Unfortunately, we tend to be educated by the popular media, multi-level companies, or health food store employees.  It has been my experience that these individuals know enough about vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and herbs "to make them dangerous."  They are far from being experts in this field.  Of the hundreds of multi-level and health food store owners/employees with whom I have spoken over the past couple of decades, few have any idea how much to take and how often to take them.  Multi-level companies in particular are full of pseudo-scientific individuals being led around with the promise of making "big bucks" someday.
