Researchers have found increasing antioxidant intakes may lead to less oxidative stress in men with prostate cancer. It is believed that oxidative stress may play a role in both the progression and development of prostate cancer.
Biomarkers of oxidative stress in prostate tissue, blood and urine were examined by researchers. A 10% increase in the intake of antioxidants was associated with a 1.1% decrease in urinary8-isoprostane concentrations (a ”reliable marker of lipid peroxidation which shows the oxidative degradation of lipids”).
The loss of electrons seen in oxidation produces free radicals which damage cells. Antioxidants which are molecules found in vegetables, fruits and from other sources are known to inhibit the oxidation in other molecules. Antioxidants like Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Selenium, Resveratrol, Acai are just a few known free radical scavengers.
