Mother Nature provides thousands of different antioxidants in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and legumes to help your body protect itself from the rigors of oxidation (deterioration). However, in today’s environment, we don’t always eat like we should, and your body needs its’ best defense; antioxidants are crucial to your health! This powerful combination of antioxidants promotes a strong defense and guards your body from unwanted elements causing stress.
- Contains N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine which metabolizes into Glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant
- Contains Quercetin which inhibits normal cellular proliferation
- Contains Alpha-Lipoic Acid which can prevent further accumulation of free radicals
- Contains Green Tea Polyphenols to reduce the formation of abnormal cells in smooth muscle tissue
- Contains Pine Bark Extract which may support a healthy blood glucose level already within normal limits and supports healthy blood pressure already within the normal range
- Aids in limiting the buildup of compounds called reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are normally produced as a byproduct of cellular energy production.
- Supports the reduction of Oxidative Stress
- Defends against free radicals
Benefit of Antioxidant Supplement
When excessive oxidation occurs for prolonged periods, it can take a toll on the system. Changes occur in cells which include damage to fatty acids, inactivation of enzymes, deterioration of cell membranes, breakdown of proteins, and damage to the DNA. For instance, if oxidants damage DNA, the eventual consequence could be a higher likelihood of cancer. If the damage occurs in arteries that supply blood to the heart, it could lead to hardening of the arteries and a heart attack. All these changes lead to disease and premature aging. Over the past few years, scientific evidence has slowly accumulated indicating that taking antioxidant supplements could potentially reduce the risk of certain illnesses and maintain brain health. There is, as of now, no proof that ingesting antioxidant supplements prolongs life span in humans, but enough evidence has accumulated on the benefits of antioxidants that one should not casually dismiss their potential in improving quality of life and slowing the progression of certain chronic degenerative disorders.

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine - Produced by the body, N-acety-l-cysteine (commonly called NAC) is a form of the amino acid cysteine. Because it enhances the production of the Enzyme glutathione, one of the body’s powerhouse antioxidants, NAC can both stave off disease and play an important role in boosting the immune system. Studies have shown that glutathione levels are often reduced in people with certain conditions related to the immune system.
Quercetin - Quercetin helps prevent or treat heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, allergic reactions, asthma, arthritis, cancer and prostate problems. Improves athletic performance, bone health and the immune response, prevents fatigue, reduces recovery time and boosts energy.
Alpha Lipoic Acid - Alpha-lipoic acid (also known as ALA) is a synthetic version of lipoic acid, a naturally occurring compound produced in the body and synthesized by both plants and animals. This antioxidant is vital to cellular energy production, and helps to neutralize the damage caused by free radicals.
Green Tea Extract - Green Tea Extract is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. It is loaded with polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, which function as powerful antioxidants. These substances can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage. These free radicals are known to play a role in aging and all sorts of diseases. One of the more powerful compounds in green tea is the antioxidant Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which has been studied to treat various diseases and may be one of the main reasons green tea has such powerful medicinal properties.
Pine Bark Extract - Pycnogenol, is a patented mixture of 40 or more plant chemicals, including flavonoids and antioxidants. It is extracted from the bark of Pinus maritima (also called Pinus pinaster), native to southern France. Other pine bark supplements are on the market, many also containing various flavonoids.
