The travel season is around the corner! Travel, even during the planning stage, can put a real pressure on our immune systems and this could be due to the increased exposure to free radicals.
What are free radicals?
1. Jet Lag
Not having sufficient sleep means metabolism continues to take place and prevents melatonin, an antioxidant, from producing.
Stress from planning the trip can cause hormonal changes, which in turn produces free radicals.
3. Sun or UV Rays
Prolonged sun exposure from your trip generates free radicals that age the skin, causing roughness and wrinkles.
4. Oily and Processed Food
Food taken outside usually has higher fat content, which when oxidised, creates free radicals.
5. Environmental Toxins
The places that you travel to can carry a bulk of free radicals like carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide.
A day flight exposes you to radiation from the sun. This risk of radiation can be significantly reduced if you travel at night.
No one loves spending time abroad sick in bed, so whether you are travelling for business or pleasure this end of year, it is important to take care of your defence system of antioxidants to fight against free radical damage.
