Why are antioxidants important?
Antioxidants are molecules that counteract free radicals. Free radicals, also known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), are highly unstable molecules generated in cellular mitochondria as a natural response to environmental stressors such as inflammation, actinic radiation from sunlight and many environmental toxins such as air pollutants. Free radicals are inherent in the biologic functions of life and antioxidants are nature’s way of balancing this chemical reaction.
The cells of the equine retina are especially susceptible to oxidative stress-induced damage because of their high oxygen consumption and exposure to light.
Antioxidant levels diminish with age. Supplementing with specific antioxidants has been shown to diminish the damage caused by oxidative stressors of normal daily living.
