One speaks of an overload of so-called free radicals. These are very reactive, aggressive oxygen compounds. The body itself uses these compounds as part of its defence mechanisms. Only when there is an excess do we speak of oxidative stress.
The physiological balance is disturbed and the excess free radicals can attack healthy tissue at various levels, cell protection is no longer guaranteed.
The body can gradually weaken these free radicals via various mechanisms and neutralise them over time. To do this, the body needs various vitamins, such as vitamins A, C and E, but also a variety of different plant-based protective substances such as plant pigments (carotenoids, flavonoids, etc.), essential oils or tannins.
A sufficient supply of vitamin C is therefore a decisive factor. A diet rich in fruit, vegetables and wild herbs provides vitamin C, but also plant-based protective substances. In times of increased stress, however, it is often difficult to maintain inner balance through diet alone.
In addition, it is particularly important to reduce the influenceable causes of oxidative stress as much as possible. Reducing smoking or, even better, stopping smoking altogether, reducing prolonged stress and multiple stresses, and paying attention to a healthy amount of exercise and a balanced diet are the cornerstones for giving oxidative stress as little room as possible.
