Description: Basic Anti-Oxidant 100t is available by Douglas Laboratories.
A Dietary Supplement
provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a potent antioxidant dietary
supplement that includes several vitamins and minerals that effectively
participate in our body’s antioxidant defense system.
Basic Antioxidant may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to increase their intake of antioxidants.
Body cells and tissues are threatened
continuously by damage caused by toxic free radicals and reactive
oxygen species (e.g., peroxides) which are produced during normal
oxygen metabolism, by other chemical reactions and by toxic agents in
the environment. Free radicals, once formed, are capable of disrupting
metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs, additional
free radicals are produced, which in turn can result in more extensive
damage to cells and tissues.
The uncontrolled production of
free radicals is thought to be a contributing factor to many
degenerative pathologies. The body’s antioxidant defense system is more
than the sum of its parts. That’s because antioxidants depend on each
other for ongoing effectiveness. For example, beta-carotene supports
Vitamin E, recognized as the body’s most valuable fat soluble
antioxidant. It prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by
inactivating free radicals, thus stabilizing and protecting cell
membranes, e.g. in the lungs, eyes, and arteries.
can be regenerated by vitamin C. Vitamin C is a potent water-soluble
antioxidant nutrient, also protecting cells from oxygen free radical
damage. It is essential for connective tissue and bone metabolism,
capillary health, and immune function. Vitamin C works together with
vitamin E. When vitamin E is inactivated by neutralizing free radicals,
vitamin C regenerates it back to full activity. In this process,
however, vitamin C is oxidized and loses its antioxidant activity.
a cofactor of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), zinc
can be considered an antioxidant nutrient. Zinc supplementation has
been shown to increase the antioxidant activity of SOD, and provide
increased free radical protection. Zinc deficiency is associated with
increased oxidative damage. Selenium is an essential cofactor of
glutathione peroxidase, a potent antioxidant. Magnesium is involved in
energy metabolism, and is notably important in the heart, skeletal
muscles, and nervous system.
