Oxidative stress is the harmful condition that occurs when there is an excess of free radicals, a decrease in antioxidant levels, or both. Scientific studies have shown that free radicals are culprits of many diseases of the older population, including neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease, as well as conditions affecting vision such as cataracts, and macular degeneration.
