  Human body is just like a machine which needs sufficient amount of energy on daily basis. Lacking of energy may cause various health problems. On daily basis, one have to perform a variety of activities. To perform the activity without any problem or to maintain the health while performing, one need to take nutritional supplements. It is because of this reason that during physical activity, reactive oxygen species and antioxidants are produced in the body. The main function of antioxidant is to reduce the reactive oxygen species. If the body failed to produce antioxidants than the level of reactive oxygen species are increased which may cause oxidative stress.
