A Dietary Supplement
Basic Antiox is a
potent antioxidant and multivitamin/ mineral supplementation program in
two daily packets, each containing 3 Basic Preventive® 5 tablets, 1
Vitamin C tablet, 1 Vitamin E softgel, 1 Co-Enzyme Q10 tablet, 1
Glutathione Plus™ capsule, and 1 Taurine capsule. All components of
Basic Antiox™ use only the purest, most hypoallergenic ingredients and
contain no yeast; corn; wheat; sugar or other sweeteners; artificial
colors, flavors or preservatives.
Basic Antiox nutrient packets may be a
useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their
intake of a broad spectrum of nutritional 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 major contributing factor to many
degenerative diseases. 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, coenzyme Q10 and
beta-carotene support vitamin E; vitamin E is regenerated by vitamin C;
glutathione reactivates vitamin C; selenium and B-vitamins are needed
to keep glutathione effective, and zinc, copper and manganese are
needed to keep the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase active.
Basic Antiox™ is formulated to supply significant amounts of the key
antioxidants participating in the body’s synergistic antioxidant
Basic Preventive® 5 is a comprehensive, highly
concentrated vitamin-mineral-trace element supplement containing more
than 30 essential nutrients and cofactors. Basic Preventive 5
essentially combines four formulas in one: a potent antioxidant formula
rich in natural beta-carotene (from D. salina), vitamin C and natural
vitamin E; a high-potency B-complex supplement; a significant source of
bioavailable calcium and magnesium; and a full-spectrum trace element
supplement, providing zinc, copper, chromium and selenium. Basic
Preventive 5 is iron-free.
Vitamin E is recognized as the
body’s most valuable fat-soluble antioxidant. Vitamin E prevents
oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by trapping free radicals. This
helps stabilize and protect cell membranes, especially red blood cells
and tissues sensitive to oxidation, such as lungs, eyes, and the
arteries. Vitamin E has synergistic effects with co-enzyme Q10, vitamin
C, glutathione, and other anti-oxidants. Basic Antiox supplies a total
of 1,200 I.U. natural vitamin E per day.
Co-Enzyme Q10 (or
ubiquinone) is an important cofactor in the mitochondrial electron
transport chain, the biochemical pathway in cellular respiration from
which adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and metabolic energy is derived.
Co-enzyme Q10 is a naturallyoccurring antioxidant nutrient which
inhibits free radical formation in biological systems. Co-enzyme Q10
resembles vitamin E and vitamin K in chemical structure. Biochemically,
it functions much like vitamin E in that it participates in antioxidant
and free radical reactions. Vitamin C is a potent water-soluble
antioxidant nutrient, 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.
vitamin E is inactivated by neutralizing free radicals, vitamin C
regenerates it back to full activity. In this process, however, vitamin
C is oxidized. Basic Antiox provides 3,200 mg vitamin C per day.
Glutathione (from Glutathione Plus™) is a naturally occurring
tripeptide which is a major component of two anti-free radical enzymes
- glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. As such,
glutathione offers one mechanism for scavenging toxic free radicals and
inhibiting peroxidation thereby slowing down freeradical catalyzed
chain reactions. Glutathione can alsoreactivate (reduce) oxidized
vitamin C. Glutathione per se is well absorbed in the intestine, and
enters the blood and other extracellular compartments where it exerts
much of its beneficial antioxidant effects.
However, it can
not effectively enter the cell. N-Acetylcysteine (from Glutathione
Plus™) is a precursor for the sulfur amino acid cysteine which is used
by the cells to synthesize glutathione. In contrast to glutathione,
N-acetylcysteine is efficiently transported into the cell where it is
readily converted to cysteine for glutathione synthesis. Thus,
supplementation with Nacetylcysteine is recognized as a safe, highly
effective method of increasing intracellular glutathione stores. Aside
from providing cysteine as a glutathione precursor, N-acetylcysteine
also appears to have antioxidant properties as such, and is a valuable
sulfur donor for various metabolic needs. Taurine is an abundant free
amino acid in the body that provides protection to biological membranes
against lipid peroxidation.
This protects cells from abnormal
calcium ion or water entry which can occur as a result of lipid
peroxidation. Taurine lends its protective ability to oxidant-sensitive
tissues, such as the retina, where it helps protect visual cells from
light-induced oxidative damage. The cell stabilizing effect of taurine
is also important in the central nervous system, skeletal muscle, and
heart, where it is found in the highest concentrations.
