Understanding the Relationship Between
Antioxidants and Free Radicals
During a cell's normal life cycle, the body produces poisonous
waste products called free radicals. The human body has its own
capability to counteract most of these chemicals through antioxidants
absorbed in our diet. But when outside toxins, such as smoke,
excess sun exposure, environmental pollutants and alcohol consumption,
to name a few, overload our bodies - our natural defense systems
fail to provide sufficient protection. This is due to either an
overwhelming production of free radicals or a decrease of antioxidants
in the body.
When levels of free radicals overload the human body's defense
system, it causes a condition known as oxidative stress, which
can lead to a wide variety of illnesses including heart disease,
lung disease, premature aging and cancer.
One of the only ways to keep your body healthy and ensure that
the levels of free radicals inside your body don't reach oxidative
stress levels, is to have a continuous build-up of antioxidants
in your body at all times.
Antioxidant sources include:
- Naturally produced in the body
- Fruits & vegetables
- Nutritional supplements
Unfortunately, as antioxidants fight off free radicals - there
comes a point in the cycle where antioxidants becomes free radical
themselves. The "antioxidant turned free radical" must
then be neutralized or regenerated into an antioxidant again.
One question remains: how do we ensure that
an oxidized by-product of an antioxidant will be neutralized,
enabling it to fight against free radicals instead of becoming
Working to Protect Against Free Radicals &
Promote Healthier Life
By replicating the body's synergistic antioxidant cellular defense
system, the patented Thione Complex plays an integral role
in detoxifying free radicals and converting them into non-toxic
molecules. A singular antioxidant cannot regenerate itself. It
needs the help of specific synergistic antioxidants to do so.
The patented Complex works together with other enzymes to speed
up the process and ensure that all cellular antioxidant partners
remain partners, and not enemies.
The Thione Complex:
- Prevents damage to cell structure and function
- Reduces free radical damage to DNA
