BEIJING — Fear of mortality is one reason Americans spend so much on “antioxidant” products, including Vitamin C supplements and beta-carotene, which promise a longer healthier life. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than half of adults in the U.S. consume some kind of antioxidant product, spending $37 billion each year.But a study conducted in China – where aging is akin to a national obsession these days – claims that antioxidants don’t work as billed.

The study is published in the journal Redox Biology.A new study finds that antioxidant supplements may be more harmful to the human body than believed.Rather than extending longevity, researchers say they trigger a stress reaction which causes the body to age more rapidly.
