Just some of the antioxidants you will find in the food you eat...
L-Carnosine is a multi-potent
super-antioxidant which stabilizes and protects the cell membrane. Specifically,
as a water-soluble free radical scavenger it prevents lipid peroxidation within
the cell membrane. Many antioxidants (like vitamins E and C) are aimed at preventing
free radicals from entering the tissues, but have no effect after this first line
of defense is broken. Free radicals cause oxidative stress in the body.
L-Carnosineis not only effective in prevention, but it is also active after free radicals
react to form other dangerous compounds, like lipid peroxides and and secondary
products. So, it protects the tissues from these damaging 'second-wave' chemicals.
L-Carnosine is naturally found in the human body but the level of L-Carnosine reduces with age.
Carotenoids are perhaps best known for their ability to be converted to vitamin
A, which is essential for healthy vision and reproduction, and for maintaining
body tissues. Carotenoids are also powerful antioxidants on their own right.
|Co Q10 is involved in the body's
metabolic processes, particularly in the release of energy from food. It is also
a potent antioxidant. Antioxidants can mop up damaging chemicals (free radicals)
in the body and guard against many chronic diseases, especially in the heart.
|Green tea is an excellent source
of potent polyphenols, a strong antioxidant and inhibitor of harmful Angiogenesis|
|Vitamin A, is a fat-soluble vitamin
and is involved in the formation and maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and mucous
membranes. Vitamin A helps us to see in dim light and is necessary for proper
bone growth, tooth development, and fertility and has been well documented for
decades. It is also an important antioxidant.|
|It has been recently discovered that
several of the B vitamins have antioxidant effects and that they stimulate the
activity of the immune system.|
|Vitamin C is an important antioxidant,
in protected the body against free radicals it helps protect against cancers,
heart disease, stress. Vitamin C is also part of the cellular chemistry that provides
energy and is essential for sperm production, and for making the collagen protein
involved in the building and health of cartilage, joints, skin, and blood vessels.
| Alpha-tocopherol is the most active
form of vitamin E in humans, and is a powerful biological antioxidant. Antioxidants
such as vitamin E act to protect your cells against the effects of free radicals,
which are potentially damaging by-products of the bodys metabolism. |
has become the central topic of discussion in the debate on trace elements in
which some doctors have dismissed the mineral as humbug, while others recommend
it as a valuable component in preventative medicine, or even prescribe it as part
of a course of treatment. Veterinary surgeons, on the other hand, have been using
adjunct selenium therapy for many years.|
Soy & Isoflavones
Research suggests that soy may offer a number of health benefits related to:
- menopause symptom relief
- cardiovascular disease
is vital to about 200 different enzymes, to the formation of bone tissue, in the
healing of wounds and sores, to the production of proteins, the regulation of
ribosomal, ribonucleic acid synthesis and insulin and in the carbohydrate metabolism.
Zinc is also an antioxidant. |
