Antioxidants

antiox.gif

ANTIOXIDANTS are formulas that may contain ingredients found in Herbal Formulas, Vitamins, Enzymes, Amino Acids and Minerals.
Antioxidants work in several ways:
~ they may reduce the energy of a free radical, they may stop the free radical from forming in the first place and they may interrupt an oxidizing chain reaction (reducing free radical damage).*

The environment is the source of many free radicals, also known as oxidizing agents - compounds that may cause damage in our cells.* A few of these oxidizing agents are:

  • ionizing radiation (from sun exposure, cosmic rays & medical X-rays*
  • ozone & nitrous oxide (from automobile exhaust)*
  • heavy metals (such as mercury, cadmium & lead)*
  • cigarette smoke (both active & passive)*
  • alcohol*
  • unsaturated fat (creating a strain on natural antioxidants in the body)*>
  • other chemicals from food, water and air*
