AntiOxidants - Free radicals are highly unstable particles that are produced in body cells as a normal part of metabolism; e.g. as a by product of fat oxidation. They are also created in the body by exposure to sunlight, x-rays, and pollutants such as tobacco smoke, car exhaust and ozone.

Free radicals attack body cells in a number of ways. They can damage mitochondria (the cells own energy powerhouses), rupture cell membranes, and damage DNA thereby altering or destroying cell function.

The body can normally cope with low levels of free radicals but high levels may initiate or contribute to premature ageing, atherosclerosis and heart disease, cancer, cataracts, arthritis, infertility in men, and other degenerative diseases.

Antioxidants are substances that combat or neutralise free radicals before excessive damage occurs to our body cells. Antioxidants show promise as agents that can prevent or delay many disease processes.

A wide range of antioxidants include vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals (including carotenoids). We have selected the best single and combination formulas and herbal antioxidants. Recommended usage includes support for anti-aging, immunity, skin, cholesterol and sports depending on your needs.
