Are you familiar with free radicals? These are reactive molecules in our bodies with unpaired electrons that can corrode important cell structures like DNA and proteins. Antioxidants neutralize the destructive free radicals by providing them with electrons which effectively stabilizes them. This is why antioxidants help prevent disease and protect against premature aging which can otherwise be exacerbated by oxidative stress. Antioxidants are known to provide a variety of health benefits and generally boost overall health and well-being.
Coffee is loaded with antioxidants, such as polyphenols and hydrocinnamic acids, which are particularly good at reducing oxidative stress and disarming free radicals. While you can enjoy these benefits by consuming coffee, you can also do it be applying coffee to the outside of your body.
