oxidative stress

pertains to a result of free radical formations within the body that are absorbed from our environment. Free radicals, for example oxygen molecules, are molecules that have lost a valence electron making them very unstable. Free radicals create oxidative stress on the body by binding to whatever is available, even healthy areas of cells. This is why antioxidants must be present to combat this.
