EverGreen Antioxidant Formula 120 caps
*The Strongest Antioxidant on the Market!
The Antioxidant Formula is the best most powerful antioxidant formula made. It is the strongest anti-aging, immune system enhancing formulation available. It is designed to be taken in addition to your Multi-Vitamin. It contains:
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) 100mg: A powerful antioxidant-both on its own and as a recycler of Vitamin E and Vitamin C. It can restore the antioxidant properties of these vitamins after they have neutralized free radicals. ALA is soluble in both water and fat and can therefore move into all parts of cells to deactivate free radicals. ALA has been used for three decades in Europe to treat peripheral nerve degeneration and to help control blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. It can play an important role in the prevention and treatment of chronic degenerative diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. ALA is known as a metabolic antioxidant, because without it, cells cannot use sugar to produce energy.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) 100mg: CoQ10 is a fat soluble antioxidant that is structurally similar to vitamin E. It plays a crucial role in the generation of cellular energy, enhances the immune system, increase circulation, has antiaging effects and is beneficial to the heart. It is well known in treating congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. It is believed that as many as 75 percent of people over fifty may be deficient in CoQ10. A lack of CoQ10 can lead to cardiovascular disease, without enough of it; the heart cannot circulate the blood effectively.
Resveratrol: 100mg: Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant found in Red Wine. It is often referred to as the “miracle” antioxidant. The dosage of Resveratrol in the Antioxidant Blend has the equivalent to 25 bottles of red wine. Resveratrol has been clinically shown to expand the lives of laboratory animals by more than 30%. Resveratrol accomplishes this huge feat by turning on your “survival genes”—the same ones that switch on during calorie restriction. These genes kick in your body’s production of sirtuins, which are proteins that play multiple roles in health and longevity. They facilitate DNA repair and maintain genome stability, protect against oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation.
Astaxanthin: 4mg: Astaxanthin is by far the most powerful antioxidant when it comes to free radical scavenging. It is a carotenoid that makes salmon pink. It prevents the damaging effects of sunlight (potent UVB absorber) and radiation in our environment. Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier AND the blood-retinal barrier (beta carotene and lycopene do not), which brings antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to your eyes, brain and central nervous system and reducing your risk for cataracts, macular degeneration, blindness, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Astaxanthin can actually help to prevent sunburn, and protect you from the damaging effects of radiation (i.e., flying in airplanes, x-rays, CT scans, etc.)
Grape Seed Extract and Pine Bark Extract: 100mg each: These are the two main sources of Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) which are naturally occurring substances present in a variety of food and botanical sources. Clinical tests show that grape seed extract and pine bark extract may be up to fifty times more potent than vitamin E and C in terms of antioxidant activity. OPC’s have shown to protect the brain and spinal nerves against free radical damage. They have also been shown to support the immune system, slow aging, reduce allergy symptoms, and protect the liver.
Vitamin C: 500mg: Vitamin C is a water soluble antioxidant and has been shown to be the first line of antioxidant defense in plasma against many different kinds of free radicals. This vitamin also guards against atherosclerosis by preventing damage to artery walls. It helps to prevent cancer, protects against infection, and enhances immunity.
Vitamin E: 200IU: Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that prevents the oxidation of lipids (fats). Fat oxidation has been implicated in the process that leads to atherosclerosis. Vitamins E is fat soluble and, since cell membranes are composed of lipids, it effectively prevents the cells’ protective coatings from becoming rancid as a result of the assault of free radicals. Vitamin E also improves oxygen utilization, enhances immune response, prevents cataracts caused by free radical damage, and may reduce the risk of heart disease. It naturally thins the blood and has been shown to prevent strokes. The natural form (d-alpha-tocopherol) is superior to the synthetic version (dl-alpha-tocopherol).
Selenium: 100mcg: A vital antioxidant that protects the heart and immune system by working closely in combination with Vitamin E. Selenium has also been found to function as a preventive against the formation of certain types of tumors. One study found that men who took 200 mcg of selenium daily over a ten year period had half the risk of developing lung, prostate, and colorectal cancer.
What are Antioxidants? Antioxidants are natural compounds that help protect the body from harmful free radicals. Free Radicals are atoms that contain at least one unpaired electron. If an electron is unpaired, another atom or molecule can easily bond with it, causing a chemical reaction. Because they join so readily with other compounds, free radicals can effect dramatic changes in the body, and they can cause a lot of oxidative damage. Some examples of free radical processes are muscle soreness, cancer, and heart disease. Antioxidant s neutralize free radicals by binding to their free electrons.
- Boost the immune system. A high intake of antioxidant nutrients appears to be especially protective against cancer.
- Have strong antiaging properties. Free radical damage is thought by scientists to be the basis for the aging process.
- Play a beneficial role in the prevention of disease, including heart disease.
Antioxidants work synergistically in giving protection against free radical damage, so it is better to take smaller doses of several different antioxidants than a large amount of only one.
