Chaga Mushroom Benefits Your Immune System With Antioxidants
To understand the Chaga mushroom benefits for your immune system, it is important to understand how antioxidants work. Antioxidants work because they neutralize free radicals, but what are free radicals and why are they bad?
This is where the antioxidants come in. Antioxidants have an extra negative charge that they can give to the free radicals. The free radicals are then neutralized because they have a balanced number of electrons and protons. Reducing the number of free radicals in your body can improve and protect your health.
Essentially, everything in our bodies are made up of complex chains of atoms, which are molecules. Atoms have protons with a positive charge and electrons with a negative charge. A free radical is atom that has been knocked out of balance. It is a missing a neutron, so it is no longer stable. When that free radical bumps into another atom it takes an electron causing a chain reaction of mishaps. These free radicals bouncing around can lead to all kinds of biological problems.
What Causes Free Radicals
Free Radicals can happen when you are exposed to environmental toxins, eat highly processed foods, drink alcohol or smoke, and even when you get a sunburn. Some of them happen simply due to unavoidable exposure to the environment we encounter every day. Others are a result of life choices. Here’s the catch, our bodies also make free radicals that can be used to fight infection and have other important functions. As with all things, moderation is best.
