It's believed that the more cells in the body that are destroyed the greater chance for the aging of the body.* Our potent and powerful antioxidant formulas give you four of nature's top antioxidants that can nutritionally help stop free radicals from snuffing out the life of a cell.* Antioxidants are molecules that slow the oxidation of other molecules. Thus the belief those antioxidants that slow aging do so by slowing down the oxidation (dying and destruction) process of the body's cells.
Grape Seed Extract is a popular antioxidant being studied today. Alpha Lipoic Acid is probably the most popular antioxidant formula sold and used today. Acetyl L-Carnitine is also very poplar.
Ascorbic acid or "vitamin C" is a monosaccharide antioxidant found in both animals and plants. The lack of antioxidants nutrients in the body "opens" the door of disease and sickness.
Antioxidants go after and challenge the cell damage done by free radicals. People who eat more vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidant nutrients have shown lower cancer rates, lower rates of heart disease and some neurological diseases. Oxidative stresses cause muscular degeneration and suppressed immunity which we have know for some time is tied to poor nutrition. Despite the clear role of oxidation stress in cardiovascular disease, controlled studies using antioxidant vitamins have shown no clear reduction in the risk or progression of heart disease. This might suggest that there are other factors such as flavonoids, in conjunction with antioxidants, the help prevent cardiovascular problems. Antioxidants add longevity to cell thus we conclude add life but more important quality of life.
