  • Free Radical: SFAF
    a molecule that contains at least one unpaired electron. Free radicals (reactive oxygen species) are a byproduct of normal metabolism. They are highly reactive and bind with electrons from other molecules, potentially initiating chain reactions as successive molecules lose and gain electrons. The robbing of electrons by free radicals can disrupt normal cellular processes and cause cellular damage (oxidative stress). See also antioxidant, oxidation.
