Benefits of Antioxidant Plus
Designed to help slow down the oxidation of LDL cholesterol
Supports the transformation of free radicals into waste.
Provides key nutritional support for the immune system and helps the body's natural skin and tissue defense system against infections.
Antioxidant Formula has the potential to mitigate tissue damage caused by excessive free radicals in patients with multiple cardiovascular risk factors. A recent study showed that a combination of vitamin C, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10 and selenium had positive effects on numerous parameters of cardiovascular disease. Arterial elasticity was improved along with positive changes in glucose and lipid markers. Genetic research shows that individuals with a family history of cardiovascular disease may be at higher risk of developing heart related problems. A healthy heart plays a critical role in nourishing, oxygenating, and removing waste from cells throughout the body. Coenzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid (the only fat- and water-soluble antioxidant), and consumption of tocotrienols is associated with reduced risk of coronary heart disease, reduced susceptibility to ischemia-induced arrhythmia, and reduced heart rate accompanied by improved myocardial efficiency. These essential nutrients are available in Antioxidant Plus, which is formulated to promote optimal cellular function and a healthier heart.
Antioxidants are important to immune cell function across all ages helping to shield immune cells by neutralizing free radicals which become increasingly critical as we age as the free radical formation and oxidative damage is on the rise. Antioxidant Plus is designed to boost your immune system’s efficiency with antioxidant nutrients such vitamin A and C, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC), CoQ10, Alpha Lipoic Acid and selenium known to neutralize the destructive chain reactions of free radicals. Research has found vitamin A to play a critical role in immunity by regulating the migration of both innate and adaptive immune cells. Evidence has shown vitamin A to activate specific receptors in innate lymphoid cells that act like homing devices, making it possible for these immune cells to migrate from the lymph nodes to the epithelial cell barrier of the intestines to fight infections from parasites, bacteria and viruses at the point of entry. Studies have found the antibacterial properties of NAC to be successful in inhibiting biofilm formation which may be involved in many infections including upper respiratory airway infections, bronchitis and pneumonia. Vitamin C supports epithelial barrier function which serves as a protective barrier against infectious pathogens, promotes the antioxidant and free radical scavenging of the skin and helps protect against environmental oxidative stress. Research indicates Antioxidant Plus for immune system protection could be considered.
Low serum levels of Selenium, Vitamin E, and Zinc have been associated with hyperglycemia. Studies show that Supplementation with Antioxidants showed improvement or no progression of their retinopathy.
