Mitochondria, Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), and Their Effect on the Body

Posted by The Protein Man on Feb 23, 2021 4:30:00 PM

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are highly reactive molecules and free radicals formed as a natural byproduct of oxygen metabolism. These molecules, which are present at low levels in normal cells, play a vital role in maintaining healthy redox processes and ensuring proper function in the cells. However, an overproduction of ROS may cause oxidative stress, cellular damage, and DNA damage, which may lead to several physiological and pathological conditions.
