Antioxidants are nutrients found in all types of fruits and vegetables, plants, nuts and seeds. They help to protect the body from the damage caused by toxic molecules called free radicals. Free radicals play a role in the aging process and the development of most diseases including cataracts, heart disease, infertility, arthritis, abnormal cell development and many other chronic health conditions.
Antioxidants work by neutralizing free radicals before they can damage cells. They do this by stabilizing them but during this process, the antioxidants themselves become mild free radicals and must be “recycled” back to their original form to keep acting as antioxidant. Moreover, some antioxidants are more effective in certain locations in the body than others, meaning that you need to take the right ones for best results!
The vicious cycle of oxidation can be prevented through taking advantage of the unique complementary interactions of an elite antioxidant strike force: the Networking Antioxidants. There are five networking antioxidants: R (+)-lipoic acid, the vitamin E complex, vitamin C, coenzyme Q10, and glutathione (GSH). When taken together, these essential nutrients form a dynamic team of protectors which can “recycle” one another. By this process, networking antioxidants enhance and extend one another’s capacities.
Other antioxidants play a supporting role to the networking antioxidants. The best understood of these network-boosters are bioflavonoids and the mineral selenium. Among bioflavonoids, carnosic acid and resveratrol are particularly interesting. Carnosic acid is found in the herb rosemary while resveratrol comes from grapes. Selenium also supports the network by maintaining the body’s supply of two key enzymes.
