consuming antioxidants like vitamin E

The free radical theory of aging implies that antioxidants such as Vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and Superoxide dismutase will slow the process of aging by preventing free radicals from oxidizing sensitive biological molecules or reducing the formation of free radicals. The antioxidant chemicals found in many foods are frequently cited as the basis of claims for the benefits of a high intake of vegetables and fruits in the diet.

Nonetheless, some recent studies tend to show that antioxidant therapy have no effect and can even increase mortality [18][19][20][21][22][23]. Proponents of the theory claim that this phenomenon can be explained by hormesis: The addition of antioxidants can lead to a decrease of normal biological response to free radicals and lead to a more sensitive environment to oxidation
