Endogenous Antioxidants & Cofactors 30c is available by Pharmax.
Features & benefits
? Glutathione is extensively broken down in the intestine if taken orally and hence N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), which is the primary precursor, is provided in Endogenous Antioxidants & Cofactors. NAC has been shown in numerous trials to reliably boost cellular levels of glutathione in a dose-dependent fashion.
? Alpha-lipoic acid is a cellular antioxidant in its own right but, because of its ability to function in both aqueous and lipophilic systems, it also functions to regenerate all of the other cellular antioxidants, i.e. vitamin E, vitamin C and CoQ10.
? Vitamin E is the primary lipophilic antioxidant, having a primary role in preventing lipid peroxidation in all cellular systems.
? Vitamin C is the primary free radical scavenger in plasma and is the most important regenerator of vitamin E.
? CoQ10 is the primary antioxidant in the mitochondria of all cells. It has a critical role in energy generation but also acts as a direct free radical quenching antioxidant within the mitochondria, where it also operates to regenerate vitamin E.
? Selenium does not act as an antioxidant in its own right but is a co-factor for glutathione peroxidase, which recycles glutathione.
This is a very important product within the Pharmax range. It provides the foundation to all of the antioxidant regimes that are used.
