An apple slice turns brown. Fish becomes rancid. A cut on your skin is raw and inflamed. All of these result from a natural process called oxidation. It happens to all cells in nature, including the ones in your body. To help your body protect itself from the rigors of oxidation, your body needs to put up its best defense, especially true in today’s environment, antioxidants are thus, crucial to your health.
Antioxidants terminate the chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions by being oxidized themselves. Antioxidants are loyal protectors and nurturers of our cells, repelling diseases such as cold, fever, headache, mental stress, muscle pain, skin disease, anxiety etc and promoting good health.
Chlorogenic acid works by inhibiting the absorption and utilization of glucose (sugar) into the blood stream. Less sugar (or a slower release of sugar) into the blood stream means less build-up of fat in the body because sugar turns to fat in the body when it’s not burned.
It enhances the burning of fat in the liver before the fat is stored. The liver is responsible for processing all of the fat we put in our body and chlorogenic acid enhances the burning of fat in the liver.
