Nutrition to Fight Free Radicals

Unstable oxygen molecules known as free radicals enter our bodies from a wide range of sources — everything from smoke and unhealthy foods to sunshine and air. Antioxidants in our diet work to neutralize these cell-damaging invaders and include nutrients such as beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and many more. 


Lunasin, a naturally occurring peptide in soy, has been clinically shown to function as an antioxidant in three ways:

  • Reduces oxidation of linoleic acid that produces oxygen radicals
  • Acts like an oxygen radical scavenger (traditional antioxidant mechanism)
  • Reduces oxygen radicals produced by macrophages. Macrophages are highly specialized cells that remove dying or dead cells and cellular debris.
