What are free radicals and why do they make you age?

Your body is made up of tens of trillions of cells which perform the tasks necessary for life. Each cell is made up of millions of molecules which (hopefully) have balanced electrons in order to function properly. Over time, your body both produces and ingests free radicals which force molecules into an electron imbalance, disrupting normal function. As time progresses, free radical assault causes your cells to degrade which is the primary cause of aging.

 

How sulfites create free radicals

Sulfur dioxide(SO2) is commonly used to increase shelf life of wine and food and preserve the way it looks. It is water soluble and readily converts into bisulfites and sulfites. As this conversion takes place, electrons are lost creating imbalanced particles, or free radicals.

Decreasing the effects of free radicals

Sulfur dioxide(SO2) is commonly used to increase shelf life of wine and food and preserve the way it looks. It is water soluble and readily converts into bisulfites and sulfites. As this conversion takes place, electrons are lost creating imbalanced particles, or free radicals.

 

You should also take a closer look at the amount of free radicals you consume. Fried food, red meat, sulfite preserved items, and solar radiation are all common ways in which people receive free radicals into their bodies. By reducing your intake of these contaminants, balanced with an antioxidant rich diet, a healthy lifestyle can be achieved.

For those wishing to remove the perils of free radicals without foregoing one of their favorite beverages, StiQit is a great solution. It completely and instantly removes sulfites from your wine, a common cause of free radicals, without stripping the flavor.
