Beauty from within

Protecting cells from free radicals may have cosmetic benefits too. Free radical damage is one of the principal mechanisms of aging. Antioxidants are thought to provide some protection against environmental damage to the skin, such as ultra violet from the sun, and may be somewhat effective in slowing down the skin aging.

Taking your recommended daily allowance of products containing antioxidants could also help strengthen hair, nails, eyes, teeth and gums.
