Antioxidants & Free Radicals
Antioxidants are supplements that protect us from free radical damage
Antioxidants are molecules that help to prevent damaging oxidation that occurs in our bodies as a result of reactive molecules called free radicals, produced in excess by pollution, radiation, fried/burnt foods, sunlight and some cellular metabolism. Damaging oxidation is called oxidative stress and is associated with illness, premature ageing and general biological stress.
Supplementing the diet with a high-quality, wide-spectrum antioxidant is considered to be one of the most important things that we can nutritionally take to maintain optimum health. In fact, Patrick Holford says in his book The Optimum Nutrition Bible that, "Since the 1980s more and more research has confirmed that many of the twentieth century's most common diseases are associated with a shortage of antioxidant nutrients, and helped by their supplementation."
Alpha-Guard Plus is a new vastly improved version of our superlative full-spectrum antioxidant complex which offers unparalleled protection from harmful cellular oxidation — a primary cause of cellular deterioration and premature ageing. It also contains specific nutrients to protect the eyes from oxidative damage. Does not contain fillers or other excipients.
AlphaCurcumin Plus is a highly bioavailable curcumin complex with added Essential Turmeric oils, Bromelain and Quercetin. Curcumin is extracted from the turmeric root or rhizome and is known to support healthy cellular functioning. This supplement contains 100% active ingredients without fillers or other excipients.
Pro-Knox is a professional-formula, natural low-molecular weight antioxidant complex that has a strong redox potential and more free radical quenching activity and efficiency than SOD alone. It is made from plant extracts that are rich in vitamins A, C, E, beta-carotene, quercetin, riboflavin, polyphenols, tannin, flavonoids, glutathion, catalase and superoxide dismutase (SOD).
Green tea extract is derived from the leaves of the green tea plant (Camellia sinensis). The extract contains high quantities of effective polyphenol antioxidants, mostly green tea catechins (GTC). These are not only beneficial in helping to reduce excess oxidation, but have many other health properties that are only now being discovered. Green Tea-ND™ Extract by Premier Research Labs is a micro-digested liquid green tea extract that is very highly bioavailable.
Quinol-ND by Premier Research Labs is a supplement containing Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol, also known as Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ 10). This combination CoQ10, a substance found in virtually every cell of the body, helps with energy production, heart health, brain and cognitive function. Ubiquinol acts as a potent antioxidant, while Ubiquinone is used for energy production.
