Abstract

This review, while defining antioxidants (AOs), their actions and benefits, more importantly critically highlights
and rationally validates many myths and controversies regarding their supplementation. Questions will be answered
regarding whether: 1) AOs are such harmless drugs that unlimitedly boost body functions, kill cancer, and blunt aging,
2) AO members are “created equal” so that they are equally effective, 3) AO-fortified food and beverages should be
taken as a sole, favorable resource for AO supplementation, and 4) AO supplements have always positive impact on
athletes’ performance and gain such that they can make them increasingly good and fit. Finally, future concerns and
directions are discussed.
