Can Antioxidants Help You Build Muscle? Free Radicals
Destroy Your Muscles

our muscle cells.

Staying clear of situations that cause a surge of free radicals to surge is one way of
prevention and taking antioxidants as a supplementation is another. There are many
situations that will increase free radical activities such as sun burn, stress, smoking,
alcohol consumption, pollution, exercise workout amongst others. Yes, we get a
surge of free radicals when we exercise especially intensive exercises because we are
putting our bodies under tremendous stress when we exercise. These muscle
destroying activities will continue for hours and even days depending how intensive
your exercises are.

This is where antioxidants supplementing comes in. Since antioxidants neutralize free
radicals, it helps your muscles to recover faster and stop the ravaging effects of free
radicals on your muscle and thus allowing better muscle growth.

So if you want your muscles to recover faster and want to grow bigger muscles after
your workouts, supplementation with antioxidants may help. There are many
antioxidants supplements in the market. Vitamin A, C and E are perhaps the better
known free radical fighters out there. Some other excellent free radical scavengers
are Green Tea extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Beta Carotene etc

So our mums although may not have known about antioxidants and its effect of free
radicals on our body was right when they insisted that we take our vitamins. Do
protect your muscles and general health with antioxidants.

body cell decomposition and
therefore are the main culprit in
our aging process. Free radicals
are linked to aging diseases such
as cancer and heart problems
besides making us age more
quickly. Since free radicals cause
our cells to decompose, then
free radicals will also degenerate
