Pathology: Oxidative Stress and Dietary Antioxidants
A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding and Combating Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress is a state of imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the body’s ability to detoxify these harmful compounds. It is a well-established fact that oxidative stress plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of various diseases, including cancer, diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders, and cardiovascular diseases.
The Role of Dietary Antioxidants
Dietary antioxidants are substances that can neutralize ROS and prevent them from causing damage to cells and tissues. Antioxidants can be found in a variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains. Different antioxidants have different mechanisms of action, and some are more effective than others in combating oxidative stress.
