Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR) Antioxidant Synergy
Antioxidant Synergy may help to provide antioxidants for the maintenance of good health.*
During the normal metabolism of cells, oxidation reactions produce harmful byproducts referred to as free radicals. These highly reactive molecules react with DNA, protein and other cellular components, causing a great deal of damage. In the process, they produce more free radicals in a chain reaction. Antioxidants are compounds that are able to help quench free radicals and stop them from causing cellular damage. However, most antioxidants could become mild free radicals themselves in this process, which, in the long term can cause harm if not dealt with.
The body contains 5 antioxidants that are able to recycle other antioxidants, keeping them in their active states. These include R+ lipoic acid, the vitamin E complex, vitamin C, glutathione (for which Nacetylcysteine is a precursor) and coenzyme Q10.* These 5 work together to promote and extend each other’s antioxidant capacities. Other compounds act as antioxidant boosters, including bioflavonoids such as carnosic acid from rosemary, and selenium.*
AOR’s Antioxidant Synergy contains the five antioxidants to help keep cells working optimally, along with the boosters to help their actions have the most impact.*
