Protect Your Body and Slow Down Aging With Antioxidants


The Challenge of Free Radicals to Your Body

Your body is under constant attack--not only from pathogens of all kinds--but also, at the molecular level, from "free radicals." Free radicals are unstable molecules that result inevitably from the oxidation of nutrients in your body to produce energy. If they are not effectively counteracted, they systematically damage the cells of your body. This accelerates aging and can ultimately lead to many chronic degenerative diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, cataracts, and arthritis.

Just as your immune system defends your body against various kinds of pathogens, your main defense against free radical damage is the antioxidant defense system. This consists of a group of compounds that effectively disarm free radicals before they attack your tissues.

They accomplish this disarming action by engulfing free radicals and then joining their molecular structure. Although this results in the new molecule becoming a free radical itself, it is much weaker than the original free radical and is, thus, much less likely to cause harm to the cells of your body. So this is a classic instance of "when you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Dr. Lester Packer spent his entire career researching the details of this process. He, along with a team of colleagues and other scientists, have established that it involves a dynamic interplay among five key antioxidants: vitamins C and E, Coenzyme Q10, lipoic acid, and glutathione. These key substances work together in such a way that they bolster each other and maintain a balance of the overall system that they comprise. By systematically rejuvenating each other, they are said to work "synergistically." Collectively, they are called "the antioxidant network."

You can read about all the details of how free radicals--if they are not quelled--damage the body, and also learn the specifics of how the antioxidant network works to protect you in Dr. Packer's recently-published, enlightening book, "The Antioxidant Miracle."

One very important conclusion of his work, which is stressed in his book, is that the modern diet does NOT provide an adequate intake of key antioxidants and that it is, therefore, crucially important for EVERYONE to supplement their diets with high quality antioxidants in order to slow down aging and help prevent the development of degenerative disease. As he points out very cogently, the research evidence indicates that some of these diseases, such as cataracts, can be prevented COMPLETELY through effective supplementation.

How To Get The Most Potent Antioxidant Available

Although there are a great many antioxidant products on the market, very few of them meet the crucially-important criterion established by Dr. Packer and his colleagues of supporting the entire "antioxidant network." Interestingly, there is now much research evidence showing that supplementing with a single antioxidant, such as vitamin E for example, actually seems to CONTRIBUTE to the development of degenerative disease. Further, due to inadequate quality control, many so-called antioxidants actually have little or no effect in quenching free radicals in the body and some of them have actually been found to have a PRO-oxidative effect.

There is one particular antioxidant supplement, however, that has been specifically designed to support the synergistic process of the antioxidant network. Under development for over three years before its release in 9/03, this product has been shown in comparative laboratory testing to be three times more potent than the next closest competitor of 90 antioxidant products tested. Moreover, it was shown to be 10 times more effective than the AVERAGE of these other products.

This product combines an unique glyconutritional complex, which mobilizes the body's own production of glutathione, with a freeze-dried extract of 12 vine-ripened fruits and vegetables, AND a carefully-balanced blend of five antioxidants: vitamin E, quercetin, grape pomace extract, green tea extract, and vitamin C from the Australian Bush Plum. (The Australian Bush Plum contains a much higher concentration of vitamin C than any other natural source on the planet.)

Another impressive fact about this supplement is that, as a part of its development, the company that created it also created a new, improved test for measuring the actual antioxidant potency of ALL antioxidants in the body--including those that are soluble in water, as well as those that are soluble in lipids. Previously, there had been no effective way to measure the lipid-based antioxidants.

Finally, this product stands out from the vast majority of other antioxidants in that it conforms to Good Manufacturing Practices, ensuring a very high degree of quality control.
