Anti Oxidant

R240.00

Biochemical processes naturally lead to the formation of free radicals and under normal circumstances the body can keep them in check.
Not all free radicals are bad some are needed for various functions within the body, but in excess free radicals cause damage to cells and tissues, impairs the immune system and leading to infections and various degenerative diseases.
What causes too may free radicals to form?
Exposure to radiation (from the sun or x-rays), exposure to environmental pollutants (tobacco smoke, exhaust fumes & household chemicals), and poor diet.

Free radicals can cause a lot of oxidative damage, which may be irreversible, particularly damage to the heart muscle cells, nerve cells, and immune system sensor cells, Leukaemia, cancer and heart disease are just some of the more serious diseases that can result from free radical exposure. Dr. Gladys Block (University of California Berkley) found in mouth, throat, stomach cancers, showed evidence of patients that took anti-oxidants were 40% less susceptible to the above cancers.

WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS
Antioxidants are natural compounds that help protect the body from harmful free radicals. Anti-oxidants neutralise free radicals by binding to their free electrons. Therefore antioxidants can be taken as a preventative or considered by those who do not follow a healthy lifestyle for what ever reason. If you are approaching 50, I would advise the use of anti-oxidants. In today’s world there are so many things that attack our immune system (pollutants, toxins, poor nutrition & stress). Even for a healthy athlete, increased stress in terms of training can leave one susceptible to infection.

WHY USE AN ANTIOXIDANT SUPPLEMENT
Although many antioxidants can be obtained from food sources such fresh fruits and vegetables, it is difficult to get enough of them from these sources to hold back the free radical constantly being generated in our polluted environment. We can minimise free radical damage by taking an antioxidant supplement which consists of the key nutrients. It is better to take a antioxidant which has several different antioxidants than one large amount of only one or two.

Our Anti-Oxidant formula combines vitamin A, C & E, along with several amino acids which are known to be some of the best anti-oxidants & will with the necessary enzymes act against free radicals to help the metabolism recover. When should a product such as Anti-Oxidant be used? For fit healthy individuals it would be advisable to supplement with during intense training or during winter. For the elderly and un-healthy individual it would be advisable to take them year round to give yourself a much greater chance of warding off infection and disease.
