From the manufacturer's website:
AntiOxidant Essentials is a potent antioxidant dietary supplement that includes not only antioxidant vitamins such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E, but also other nutrients that effectively participate in our body’s antioxidant defense systems.*
Antioxidant nutrients are necessary to protect the body from the destructive effects of harmful molecules that cause oxidation. Because these molecules are highly reactive, they are called reactive species. Some reactive species are called free radicals, because their structure contains an unpaired electron that has a strong tendency to grab an electron from other molecules. This damages delicate cellular structures by taking electrons from proteins and unsaturated fatty acids and injures vital tissues such as cell membranes and DNA (genetic material). Thus, the role of antioxidants is to prevent this damage. Free radicals are constantly being created in the body from normal physiological processes. Free radical production is a consequence of energy production in the cells. In the immune system white blood cells actually use free radicals as a weapon to destroy foreign invaders, such as bacteria and viruses. Free radicals are also generated from exposure to chemicals, drugs, smog, and radiation. Evidence suggests that oxidative stress contributes to the development of many common health problems, including atherosclerosis and diabetes. In addition, it is implicated in the aging process, in part through negative effects on mitochondrial DNA. AntiOxidant Essentials provides a comprehensive blend of water soluble antioxidants (including Vitamin C and glutathione) and fat-soluble antioxidants (including Vitamin A and Vitamin E). Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant capable of neutralizing both fat- and water-soluble free radicals. Zinc, copper and manganese are necessary components of the endogenous antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD).
Warning: Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children.
