Antioxidants

Antioxidants are an essential part of optimal health.

Even conventional Western physicians now acknowledge the significance of getting sufficient antioxidants from your diet or taking high-quality antioxidant supplements.

But do you know how antioxidants function in your body and what types you need?

Antioxidants are a class of molecules that are capable of inhibiting the oxidation of another molecule. Your body naturally circulates various nutrients in your body due to their antioxidant properties. It also manufactures antioxidant enzymes in order to control free radical chain reactions. Some antioxidants are produced by your body, but some are not. In addition, your body’s natural antioxidant production can decline as you age.Antioxidants play a significant role in your health, as they can control how fast you age by fighting free radicals.1

Vegetables and fruits are rich sources of antioxidants.

There is good evidence that eating a diet that includes plenty of vegetables and fruits is healthy, and official U.S. Government policy urges people to eat more of these foods. Research has shown that people who eat more vegetables and fruits have lower risks of several diseases; however, it is not clear whether these results are related to the amount of antioxidants in vegetables and fruits, to other components of these foods, to other factors in people’s diets, or to other lifestyle choices.

Top 5 Antioxidant Supplements

Co Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

Co Enzyme Q10, more commonly referred to as CoQ10, is found in almost every cell in the body. CoQ10 plays a role in producing energy in the mitochondria. Co is an abbreviation of cofactor, meaning that it’s a cofactor which other enzymes require for their own function.

CoQ10 can be found in the diet; common sources included meat and fish. However, dietary intake of CoQ10 is typically in low amounts. CoQ10 can also be synthesised in the liver from L-Tyrosine but, again, in typically low amounts.

Krill Oil

krill oil anti inflammatoryKrill Oil is extracted from an ocean-dwelling, shrimp-like crustacean, called the krill. Krill Oil has a huge range of health benefits, mainly deriving from its high natural levels of the Omega 3 fatty acids Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA).

The source of krill used in our Krill Oil Softgels is an Antarctic species known as the Euphausia Superba, which lives deep in the Antarctic waters of the Southern Ocean. Due to being at the bottom of the food chain, the Euphausia Superba is free from contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides, which you will be happy to know means that our krill oil softgels are too

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid is derived from Octanoic Acid and plays a vital role in aerobic metabolism.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is often used in place of carbohydrate – one such example, is where Creatine is combined with Alpha Lipoic Acid instead of with additional carbohydrate.

Spirulina

spirulina powderA nutrient dense, dark green powder, containing all of the essential amino acids alongside many vitamins and minerals, including B Vitamins and Iron.

Spirulina is an algae that grows in natural alkaline lakes, in a tropical and sub-tropical environment. Spirulina was consumed as a food source hundreds of years ago. In more recent times, Spirulina was ‘re-discovered’ in the 1960s.

Organic Chlorella

Chlorella Algae is a nutrient rich, blue to green algae, commonly found in both subtropical and tropical waters. Affluent in its nutritional value, the Chlorella cell is protected by a tough wall, which is broken using high impact jet spraying. This broken cell wall preserves the nutritional integrity of the cell contents so that these are accessible and undamaged when consumed
