Antioxidants, primarily found in brightly colored fruits and vegetables, are substances that rid the body of free radicals.
Free radicals are unstable compounds made inside of the body but also from exogenous substances such as fried foods, alcohol, smoking, and pollutants. Excess free radicals create oxidative stress in the body and can damage tissues, cells, and accelerate signs of aging. Increased free radical production is associated with the development of chronic disease and inflammatory conditions.
Fatigue, low mood, and stubborn weight loss are all signs of increased free radical exposure and toxin accumulation in the body.
Antioxidants help lower inflammation and protect cells from damage, especially important in our toxic world today as we are often overexposed to chemicals, radiation, UV sunlight, and pollution. Antioxidant-rich foods include berries, green tea, cacao, cloves, turmeric, and coffee beans.
Supplementing with vitamins and antioxidants can provide superior natural antioxidant protection than diet alone.
Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in various berries (cranberry, blueberry, grapes) and herbs. Acta-Resveratrol provides antioxidants and other factors for the maintenance of good health.
A vitamin-like essential nutrient, coenzyme Q10 facilitates energy delivery to metabolic processes in the body. Due to its role in ATP synthesis, CoQ10 affects the function of all cells in the body, making it essential for the health of all tissues and organs. It is known to have a beneficial impact on immune performance, cardiovascular performance, and liver and kidney performance. CoQ10 also provides antioxidant protection against oxidation in the body.
Natural Factors Ubiquinol QH Active CoQ10 is the active form of CoQ10, which is produced by our cells and is significantly better absorbed, particularly as we age. Blended with organic flaxseed oil, these soft gels are a source of omega-3 fatty acids and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) for the maintenance of good health.
Concerned about sun damage to your eyes? Lutein helps to reduce the risk of developing cataracts and it also helps to maintain eyesight in conditions such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration that are associated with sunlight damage.
Lutein is a carotenoid that is typically found in combination with its stereoisomer, zeaxanthin. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the two major carotenoid pigments in the human macula and retina.
Astaxanthin is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, known as the “king of carotenoids”. It is significantly more potent, in terms of quenching free radicals, than other members of the carotenoid family. Astaxanthin Plus by Natural Factors combines astaxanthin with lutein and zeaxanthin to protect against oxidative damage, providing cardiovascular and immune system support and protecting the skin from premature aging and other health risks associated with UV exposure. Astaxanthin also has gastro-protective effects and helps support eye health.
Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is made by the body and is found in every cell; it helps turn glucose into energy. Thus, ALA can help promote healthy blood sugar levels, and also quench free radicals.
Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells in the body.
CanPrev's Alpha Lipoic Acid contains 600mg of DL-ALA, a stable and safe form of alpha-lipoic acid. CanPrev's Alpha Lipoic Acid is supported with thiamine (vitamin B1) and biotin (vitamin B7) to help prevent potential nutritional deficiencies that can occur with alpha-lipoic acid supplementation.
