When most individuals visit a doctor, they don’t categorize their caretakers as male, female, white, Latino, tall, short, Catholic, or Baptist.

Free radicals course through our bodies in the form of oxygen atoms not coupled in the traditional “O2” configuration. With a highly reactive valence, they often forcibly pair with electrons within the body, causing cellular, protein, and ultimately, DNA damage.
