Anas profession is how to maintain and sustain the homeostasis of animals and protect them from the harmful internal and external environments that circle around them. Nowadays many antioxidants are extracted from vegetables, fruits, herbs, and other kinds of plants. These molecules play in different ways in protecting the body cells and tissues from the negative impacts of reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced from the metabolic processes and the high temperature. Increasing the ROS levels in the body results in deterioration in homeostasis and body health with emphasis on reproductive health. I’m interested in using antioxidants in the animals that lead to producing beneficial animal products for humans.
