The active ingredients of plants also have the merit of helping the body to defend itself against constant attacks at the cellular level of xenobiotic substances, pollutants, introduced through food, or of protecting against damage caused by external substances such as electromagnetic radiation, fine dust. , radioactive gases such as radon.

An antioxidant diet has the advantage of providing the body with the necessary quantities of both macro and micronutrients, in addition to these precious protective agents.
