Antioxidants as Supplement Ingredients

Antioxidants can help promote a variety of metabolic functions in the human body. They are an important aspect of health that should be incorporated into daily healthy habits. Many health product supplements include antioxidants to help make the product more effective. Having a health product that contains ingredients that promote the benefits of antioxidants can have a big impact on being able to sell the product.

About Antioxidants

Antioxidants can include vitamins such as vitamin C and E, substances found in foods such as beta-carotene, or anthocyanins – molecules that provide the strong colors found in many fruits and vegetables. Many supplements also contain antioxidants. Research does indicate that consuming antioxidants is important for many metabolic processes and that diets high in fruits and vegetables promote overall health.


Scientists have only recently begun to research the effects of antioxidants. The research effort can be time-consuming, partly because in many cases, looking at the effects of antioxidants in dietary or supplement form requires long-term study with large population. What is clear, however, is that many of the substances known as antioxidants do have significant effects on health. Vitamin C, for example, is important to wound healing and is something humans cannot make, so they must get it through diet and/or supplements.
