Exercise is a double edged sword; it is the core of a healthy lifestyle, but the very action of exercise increases oxidative stress which in some cases can actually accelerate ageing. Antioxidants play a vital role in limiting the damage associated with intense exercise and the increased levels of free radicals and oxidative stress that accompany it.
A typical outdoor athlete is exposed to both physical oxidative stress as well as environmental oxidative stress. Physical activity will generate reactive oxygen species (ROS); the more intense the activity the greater number of free radicals. ROS are shown to have damaging effects on muscle performance and recovery. Whereas environmental oxidative stress like unprotected exposure to ultraviolet radiation can damage your skin and eyes.
