Q: With all this talk about how good antioxidants are for you, is it possible to take in too many to the point that they are bad for you?
A: Moderation is key, as with most things in life. While there are a host of benefits to consuming antioxidants, too many may be linked to heart disease and may even be toxic. With that being said, if you are eating a balanced diet then you are most likely fine. Typically, it’s when people start taking additional immune boosting supplements that raises the possibility of consuming more than the optimal amount of antioxidants.
