Corrosion is a natural process, metals (In natural states) are combined with other elements to form solid compounds. Exposure to natural environments E.g. the Sea, causes the metals to revert back to the original oxidized state known as "corrosion".
Sacrificial anodes are designed with more negative electrochemical potential than that off of the structure of metal. This results in the polarisation voltage potential becoming a lot more negative. Polarisation is caused by the current flow from the anode to the cathode.
