AntiOxidant Synergy contains a blend of highly effective antioxidants which together offer powerful, multi-action protection against a wide range of free radicals: hydroxyl radicals, superoxides, singlet oxygen, fatty acid peroxides and oxidised proteins.
¤ Grapeseed extract
contains leucocyanidins, with five times greater antioxidant potency than that of vitamin E, and which also enhances the effect of vitamin C.
¤ Pine bark extract
boosts the body's antioxidant defences :
- rich in bioflavonoids, it neutralises all types of reactive oxygen species or free radicals;
- it stimulates production of the cellular antioxidants superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione ;
- it prolongs the life of the antioxidant vitamins E and C.
¤ Alpha lipoic acid is both water- and fat-soluble and thus functions in all compartments of the body to neutralise free radicals. It also helps regenerate endogenous antioxidants.
¤ Green tea extract
contains the polyphenol epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which can quench reactive oxygen species and free radicals. It crosses the blood-brain barrier easily and helps protect the brain from oxidative stress.
¤ Curcuma extract
contains curcumin which inhibits lipid peroxidation and neutralises superoxide and hydroxyl radicals.
acts as a substrate of enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase which eliminates radical peroxides. It destroys free radicals and is highly concentrated in many body tissues such as the eyes and the liver, where it prevents oxidative damage.
¤ Mangosteen extract
(Garcinia mangostana) contains xanthones with antioxidant properties which can decrease LDL oxidation and reduce the use of other antioxidants such as tocopherols.
¤ Pomegranate extract
has direct antioxidant activity and helps protect levels of the endogenous antioxidants catalase, peroxidase and superoxide dismutase.
contains a potent antioxidant blend of fruit powders and extracts, rich in polyphenols, anthocyanins, proanthocyanins, ellagic acid, chlorogenic acid, resveratrol and quinic acid, all of which are exceptionally active antioxidants
¤ Sea buckthorn extract
(Hippophae rhamnoides) has antioxidant activity which in particular, can neutralise the superoxide radical.
decreases production of reactive oxygen species, destroys superoxide radicals which form in the mitochondria and inhibits lipid peroxidation.
¤ Black rice extract
contains cyanidin-3-glucoside, an anthocyanin and particularly potent antioxidant, which has been shown to reduce age-related oxidative stress. It also has health benefits in terms of cerebral function.
One antioxidant alone cannot protect the body from constant attack by a variety of free radicals. Only a blend comprising a range of powerful antioxidants, such as AntiOxidant Synergy, can provide effective, long-lasting protection against excess free radicals and boost the body's endogenous defence system.
