Free radicals are commonly found in the body and are generated through a variety of factors and mechanisms. Many free radicals are destroyed by the body's own antioxidant defences, but some can escape these defences and result in cellular damage. Studies in the accumulation of free radical damage suggests it can lead to degenerative conditions. Antioxidants scavenge free-radicals to prevent their accumulation and the resulting cellular damage. Macu-Vision® contains the antioxidants zinc, vitamin C and vitamin E that all play an essential role in defending the macular region of the retina and lens of the eye against free radical damage.
