Hallo Nimi
antioxidants are molekules that protects your body's cells against free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced when your body breaks down food, or by environmental exposures like tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals can damage cells, and may play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases
In other words antidoxidants protect you against disease and cancer.
It does not really play a role in weight loss but does affect how you age.
