"Many scientists believe that free radicals cause the damage that is characteristic of both the aging process and many degenerative diseases. Because many of the antioxidants required to neutralize free radicals must be acquired through our diet, it is vital to supplement with generous amounts of antioxidants to ensure optimal health.
Super Antioxidant Formula is one of the most progressive antioxidant formulas available because it provides a broad spectrum of antioxidants capable of neutralizing free radicals in several very important ways. The formula contains potent compounds that neutralize both water-soluble and lipid-soluble free radicals.
Our Super Antioxidant Formula is as complete as any on the market, containing all of the well-known antioxidants as well as several other powerful additions such as Alpha Lipoic Acid."

History and Usage:
In recent years scientists have come to more fully understand the process and implications of free radical production in the body and the importance of antioxidants to combat their damage. The terms free radical and antioxidant appear frequently in descriptions and discussions regarding natural health supplements, so it is important to understand their meaning and how they impact your health.
Despite what you might think, free radicals are not leftover protestors from the 60s! Technically, a free radical is an atom with at least one unpaired electron. Because of this, they can easily attach to other atoms resulting in a chemical reaction. Not all free radicals are bad. The immune system produces free radicals to fight off bacteria and viruses. Free radicals are important in producing some hormones and in activating some enzymes. When their production becomes excessive though, they can lead to cell damage, an impaired immune system and other diseases like heart disease. Excessive production can result from environmental stresses like tobacco smoke or pollutants, exposure to radiation (including the sun) or from a high fat diet. Free radicals are neutralized in the body by antioxidants.
Antioxidants are a group of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that counteract the production of free radicals. By destroying free radicals, antioxidants detoxify and protect the body. Super Antioxidant Formula contains a number of important antioxidants.
Vitamin A is a powerful free radical scavenger. It helps protect against heart disease and stroke. Vitamin C not only works as a strong antioxidant but also protects other antioxidants like Vitamin E. Vitamin C may be particularly helpful in protecting the cells of the brain and spinal cord from free radical damage. Vitamin E works to prevent oxidation of lipids that compose cell membranes. Zinc and Selenium work synergistically with vitamin E. In addition to helping vitamin E, Selenium is important in the production of the key antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which targets harmful hydrogen peroxide converting it to water. Zinc is an antioxidant by itself but also a key component of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), which neutralizes the most common and possibly most dangerous free radical, superoxide. Alpha lipoic acid enhances the antioxidant work of vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione. L-cysteine helps produce glutathione and helps detoxify the body of tobacco smoke and other pollutants. N-acetylcysteine also boosts the production of glutathione which is key to protecting and reversing cell damage.
We cant avoid the production of free radicals in our bodies but we can do our best to limit their effects on us. Super Antioxidant Formula is a complete, natural remedy to help counteract free radical activity.
