This antioxidant supplement works to neutralize free radicals, which are dangerous to have in the body because they are unstable molecules. Left untouched, they transform other molecules of the cell into free radicals as well, eventually leading to disruption of cellular activity. This can have a wide variety of harmful effects. If DNA molecules are damaged in key places, the cell may no longer know when to stop multiplying. This is how cancer can begin. Free radicals can also harm the mitochondria, which are energy-production sites of the cell, and this causes cells to die and thus advance the aging process. Free radicals can even lead to heart disease by damaging cells located within the walls of arteries. Luckily, resveratrol works as an antioxidant which stabilizes these dangerous free radicals, preventing them from causing further damage.
