Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules in your body that harm your cells. Our Antioxidants has been optimised to contain a powerful blend of vitamins, minerals and plant extracts.
Research suggests that the components in our Antioxidants:
Enhance brain function
Boost the immune system
Support cardiovascular health
Combat joint and muscle pain
Protect against neurodegenerative processes
No Artificial Additives
A unique formula
Contains hydroxytyrosol, one of the most potent natural antioxidants, found in olive trees.
Our formulation contains no unnecessary fillers and is ideal for vegans.
Benefits backed by science
Essential Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can boost your blood antioxidant levels which may help boost your immune system.
Vitamin E is recommended for all conditions associated with increased oxidative stress, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neurologic disorders and others.
Selenium is a trace element and an antioxidant that helps lower oxidative stress in your body, which reduces inflammation and is crucial for the health and proper functioning of your immune system.
Resveratrol and Hydroxytyrosol
Resveratrol is part of a group of compounds called polyphenols, an antioxidant-like compound found in red wine, berries and peanuts. Resveratrol has been linked to a range of health benefits, including protecting brain function and lowering blood pressure.
Hydroxytyrosol, one of the most potent natural antioxidants, is found in olive trees. It has been linked to a range of health benefits, including protecting the cardiovascular system, reducing neurodegenerative processes and boosting the immune system.
Why take our Antioxidants
Polyphenols, such as resveratrol, are thought to act like antioxidants, protecting the body against damage that can put you at higher risk of diseases like cancer and heart disease. Due to its antioxidant properties, resveratrol could a promising supplement for lowering blood pressure, decreasing levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and increasing levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. It also shows promise in protecting brain cells from damage and may slow down age-related cognitive decline.
Hydroxytyrosol is said to be of the most potent natural antioxidants, surpassing even the antioxidant capacity of vitamins E and C. Research indicates that it has a range of health benefits, including, improving cardiovascular health and reducing the risks of having heart problems, especially when used as part of a Mediterranean diet. It is said to be a natural stress reliever, and may also prevent oxidative stress in your body which increases your risk of developing a range of health conditions, fight the signs of aging, battle inflammation and prevent eye lens damage that leads to vision loss.
Yes, some examples of antioxidants that come from outside the body include vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, selenium manganese, and zeaxanthin.
Flavonoids, flavones, catechins, polyphenols, and phytoestrogens are all types of antioxidants and phytonutrients which are all antioxidants found in plant-based foods.
Vitamin A: Dairy produce, eggs, and liver
Vitamin C: Most fruits and vegetables, especially berries, oranges and bell peppers
Vitamin E: Nuts and seeds, sunflower and other vegetable oils, and green, leafy vegetables
Beta-carotene: Brightly colored fruits and vegetables, such as carrots, peas, spinach and mangos
Lycopene: Pink and red fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes and watermelon
Lutein: Green, leafy vegetables, corn, papaya and oranges
Selenium: Rice, corn, wheat, and other whole grains, as well as nuts, eggs, cheese and legumes
Oxidative stress occurs when there’s an imbalance between free radical activity and antioxidant activity in your cells. When functioning properly, free radicals can help fight off pathogens. Pathogens lead to infections.
When there are more free radicals present than can be kept in balance by antioxidants, the free radicals can start doing damage to fatty tissue, DNA, and proteins in your body. Proteins, lipids, and DNA make up a large part of your body, so that damage can lead to a vast number of diseases over time.
Oxidative stress has been linked to heart disease, cancer, arthritis, stroke, respiratory diseases, immune deficiency, emphysema, Parkinson’s disease, and other inflammatory or ischemic conditions.
In short, free radicals are unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental and other pressures. Free radicals also serve important functions that are essential for health. For example, your immune cells use free radicals to fight infections. As a result, your body needs to maintain a certain balance of free radicals and antioxidants.
Research suggests you can take Antioxidants when it's convenient for you. We'd recommend earlier in the day and with a meal and water to help absorption. Avoid taking with caffeine as this can prevent absorption and increase excretion.
