Antioxidants have been touted as being so-called "anti-aging" agents and many aggressive sales campaigns have been based on this false premise. However, clear scientific evidence that antioxidants can inhibit or delay aging is lacking. Nutritional and genetic interventions to boost antioxidants have failed to increase the life span of man. Correlations between antioxidant levels and rate of aging are inconsistent and non-supportive. Questions remain as to any role for antioxidants in delaying the aging process. Actually, the theory upon which the antioxidants were studied was the free radical theory of aging and/or the mitochondrial theory of aging, both of which have been invalidated due to a lack of reproducibility in scientific studies. Even worse, there is growing evidence that excessive antioxidant overloading can cause significant harm. Rest assured, the quest for healthy aging has been fraught with outlandish scams and money-making schemes. In fact, antioxidants have been shown to increase the risk of age-associated diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, strokes and overall mortality. Moreover, the free radical theory fails to explain the well recognized, healthful benefits of exercise. Still, sales of anti-aging agents continue to sky rocket. People want a quick fix to aging or a "youth miracle pill" but such conjured-up remedies do not exist. In short, there is no antioxidant "fountain of youth." Moreover, antioxidant overkill likely interferes with crucial prooxidant protection against pathogens (infections) and cancer development. Additionally, antioxidant stacking can lead to chronic fatigue and tiredness. Avoid being duped by clever advertisers. Keep your money. Protect your health. Be safe and age gracefully and happily.
