Antioxidant Formula

Definition: Antioxidants are molecules that react with free radicals to make them less toxic. They act as friendly bodyguards neutralizing free radicals before they can do damage. The aim is not to stop the important process of oxidation in the cell's mitochondria (the cell's powerhouse) that produces energy, but to minimize the negative impact of the resulting free radical. The integrity of the cell depends on the balance of free radicals and antioxidants.

Secret to Longevity?
Premature aging has been contributed to relentless free radical oxidative stress. Free radical indices and antioxidant levels were measured in 22 Centenarians. The blood levels showed lower free radical indices. The conclusion of the 100+ers is that they had a better antioxidant system.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) – water and lipid-soluble antioxidant that recycles vitamins C, E and glutathione. As a coenzyme for energy production, ALA helps transport glucose into the cell, thus promoting normal blood sugar balance. ALA is a unique antioxidant providing intracellular and extracellular protection throughout the body.

Grapeseed Extract – antioxidant that inhibits blood clots and a bacteria cleanser in the colon.

Lycopene – tomato-derived carotenoid with antioxidant activity that is currently being research for the prevention of prostate and breast cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Bilberry - flavonoid antioxidant that helps maintain normal capillary blood flow to the eyes and protects the retina.

Green Tea Extract – antioxidant that supports the immune system, lowers cholesterol while raising the healthy HDL levels, counteracts lipid peroxidation and boosting the metabolism.

Lutein 5% - major carotenoid pigment in the eye's retina protecting the rods from light and oxygen-induced damage. Lutein is protective against macular degeneration and the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
