Super Antioxidants – This is the Magic

What are antioxidants?
he basic function of an antioxidant is to inhibit oxidation. Oxidation leads to the production of free radicals that in turn may lead to cellular damage of organisms. Damage to cells can have detrimental effects on the overall well-being of an individual. The natural purpose of antioxidants is to terminate free radicals leading to healthy and efficient cellular activity.

What are Super Antioxidants?
Super Antioxidants are the master or most potent antioxidants in our cells handled in a correct way to unleash their incredible potential. Some of these are Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione, Resveratrol, Hydroxytyrosol, and few others. When these substances are handled correctly they can provide the most protection against free radicals and subsequent inflammation. Stopping inflammation at its source is our specialty.

How do antioxidants function in our bodies?
Free radicals are dangerous molecules in the sense that they are unstable. They are looking to gain more electrons to become stable, but until they do they can cause damage to cells and even our DNA. Antioxidants are molecules that are ready to share electrons with these free radicals, neutralize them, and dispose of them. Antioxidants are essential to almost all chemical reactions that take place in our body.

Why does aging cause us to lose our ability to make/utilize antioxidants?
As we age we naturally lose the ability to make and recycle antioxidants in our bodies. Supplementing with Super Antioxidants may be the key to impressive anti-aging benefits. Scientists have known and published study after study about the untapped potential of antioxidants, seeing all the key pathways that they should work in, but without a functional product, none have been able to produce these amazing results… until now. The first Super Antioxidants are now becoming available. Aging caused by oxidative stress is the progressive loss of tissue and organ function. Providing a strong defense against oxidative stress can make all the difference for natural age progression. Slow down the effects of aging.

What is the Master Antioxidant?
Glutathione is known as “The Master Antioxidant.” That is why there are so many supplements and cosmetic products available. None of those products have reached the potential of the Super Antioxidant. Handling these molecules correctly during production all the way until it is used by someone is crucial. Antioxidants oxidize. Reduced Glutathione or GSH, is one molecule that is ready to give up an electron to unstable substances that cause oxidative stress. By combining with these dangerous substances, GSH becomes the oxidized version of itself or GSSG. Generally antioxidants go through the REDOX cycle and are able to be used time and time again, are formed or become reduced and ready to stop a dangerous particle, then oxidized, having done its job, but now inutil.

Aging lessens our ability to put glutathione through the REDOX cycle, leading to more and more severe oxidative damage, causing our cells to become less efficient over time. These and many other factors lead to age progression. Slowing down the effects of oxidative stress slows the aging process.

V.A.R.S. –
The Lost Hope of Antioxidants or The Untapped Potential of Antioxidants A Super Antioxidant must be handled and formulated correctly for its potential to be unleashed. We call this VARS™.

    • Validated – There has to be validation behind why an antioxidant should work. Also validation of the final product is important in creating a trusting line of products.
    • Absorbable – It’s absolutely critical that the final product is bio-absorbable, meaning it is capable of penetrating either the dermal layers of the skin or or mucosa of the mouth and enter the GI tract.
    • Reduced – The final product must be in its active or reduced form for it to have the efficacy of a Super Antioxidant. Most supplement and cosmetic products are already oxidized by the time the substance is given to a patient. Great care must be taken to keep an antioxidant in its reduced form for as long as possible.
    • Stable – Each product must have a shelf life of over 1 year.
