It has been suggested that cellular damage from oxygen radicals is one of
the processes leading to cardio-vascular disease and cancer. Natural antioxidants
prevent uncontrolled oxidative reactions by decreasing molecular oxygen levels,
scavenging chain-initiating and chain-propagating free radicals, chelating metals,
