The Science Behind Thione's
example of an apple, which becomes quickly discolored after it is
cut open, is a good way to understand the normal process our body's
cells undergo during metabolism.
Normal cell metabolism produces toxic substances within our bodies
called Free Radicals. Daily stress, exposure to tobacco smoke and
other pollutants, drinking, lack of rest, and an unhealthy diet,
greatly accelerate this oxidation process. These factors create
a level of toxic free radicals beyond what our body can fight on
its own, making us susceptible to chronic disease and premature
Antioxidants - Our Bodies Natural Defense
Antioxidants are the body's natural combatant against free radicals.
Unfortunately, this defense mechanism often fails to provide sufficient
protection when lifestyle and environmental factors cause the
increased production of free radicals, and the depletion of critical
compounds used by our body's antioxidant defenses. Simply put,
our systems need help in rebuilding these life-giving agents that
neutralize harmful toxins.
Free Radicals - Rust Never Sleeps
This process of cell metabolism occurs when our cells burn energy.
As an end result, toxic substances called Free Radicals are produced
and circulate throughout our bodies. These toxic Free Radicals
are what causes our body to actually oxidize or "rust",
much like the apple turns brown, which is also a process of oxidation.
They affect cell membranes and other metabolic processes and are
the direct cause premature aging, immune disorders, and over 50
chronic diseases including heart disease and cancer.
Your Body's Natural Defense
The human body has built-in antioxidant mechanisms to absorb
and neutralize Free Radicals. But these defensive mechanisms are
inadequate to provide sufficient protection to the body due to
an overabundance of toxic Free Radicals caused by stress, exposure
to tobacco smoke and other pollutants, drinking, lack of rest,
overexposure to sunlight, and an unhealthy diet. When this occurs,
we need to secure reinforcements in order to restore the body's
ability to fight disease and stay healthy.
Antioxidant Science Made Easy
Chemically toxicFree Radicals are very unstable due to the fact
that they contain "unpaired electrons". They attract
electrons from other substances to find a balance, which cause
harmful chain reactions and our cells to oxidize or "rust".
This in turn leads to greatly increased susceptibility to chronic
diseases and premature aging.
Antioxidants, which naturally occur within our body, scavenge
and neutralize Free Radicals to a less toxic or non-toxic compound.
However, an overabundance of Free Radicals or the decrease of
antioxidant protectants in the body can lead to this natural defense
mechanism breaking down. When this occurs, we need help to restore
the system's ability to fight disease and stay healthy.
Dr. Hersh's Amazing Discovery - The Thione Complex
Thione's founder and driving force, Dr. Theodore Hersh discovered
in his medical research at Emory University that the antioxidant
know as L-glutathione acts as the "commander in chief"
and regulates the function of all other antioxidants. Replenishing
the body of L-glutathione helps rebuild our restorative powers
it needs to stay youthful and healthy. But what was more important,
Dr. Hersh learned that L-glutathione's effects are dramatically
increased when combined in specific ratios with other antioxidants
such as selenium and vitamin C & vitamin E. This discovery
led Dr. Hersh to develop the Thione Antioxidant Complex.
Today, the Thione Complex is the centerpiece of all Thione
