  Frequent Questions    

What are free radicals?

Free radicals are created by the body during a cell's normal metabolic functions and are also triggered by daily stresses including excess sun exposure, smoking, environmental pollutants and alcohol, among others.

The human body has its own capability to counteract most free radicals through specific synthesized antioxidants absorbed in our diet. But when outside toxins overload our body - our natural defense system fails to provide sufficient protection. This is due to either an overwhelming production of free radicals or a decrease of antioxidants in the body. Often this leads to "oxidative stress" - a condition that occurs when free radicals overload the human body's natural defense system. Oxidative stress causes alterations in cell structure and function and cell death leading to a wide variety of illnesses including heart disease, lung disease, premature aging and cancer. Oxidative stress also damages DNA, resulting in mutations that lead to a variety of cancers.

What are antioxidants?

Already existing in our bodies, antioxidants help fight off free radical damage. In order for antioxidants to be truly effective they must work synergistically and in conjunction with the body's own ability to protect, restore and repair itself from the ravages of free radicals. By replicating the body's synergistic antioxidant cellular defense system, the patented Thione Complex plays an integral role in neutralizing 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. This knowledge is becoming the basis for radical new drugs or compositions that prevent or treat a variety of diseases. This has become the foundation for Thione International's patented Thione Complex.

What are endogenous antioxidants?

Endogenous antioxidants are those that are manufactured normally by the human body. This is one of the differences setting the Thione Complex™ apart from other supplements. By replenishing the body's defenses with its blend of endogenous antioxidants, Thione provides health benefits without any detrimental side affects.

What is L-glutathione?

L-glutathione (GSH) is the body's chief antioxidant and works synergistically with other antioxidants to combat free radical damage. GSH levels inside cells must be maintained in order to have healthy cells and a strong defense system - our bodies would die without glutathione. Much of GSH is supplied mainly from fruits, vegetables, liver, meats, fowl and fish, however most people do not replenish their systems with enough GSH to combat outside pollutants. Glutathione is vital in the regeneration of other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E, from their oxidative state. But even Glutathione cannot stand alone, it needs the proper antioxidant partners to help keep the cycle going, to regenerate glutathione once it has been “spent” in the process of neutralizing free radicals.

What is Selenium?

Selenium is a critical trace mineral in the body. This nutrient is an imperative part of antioxidant enzymes, particularly glutathione peroxidase, that protect cells against the effects of free radicals produced during normal oxygen metabolism. Selenium is also essential for normal functioning of the immune system and thyroid gland.

How are Thione's products different from other products?

Thione's products are scientifically formulated and made up of all-natural ingredients. Constituting a patented group of synergistic antioxidants, we are helping to replenish our body's stores of endogenous antioxidants helping to boost our immune defense system. All products with the Thione Complex have been carefully formulated for optimal absorption and activity in the body.

Why is the synergy of antioxidants found in the Thione Complex™ so important?

Chemically toxic free radicals are very unstable due to the fact that they contain "unpaired electrons". They attract electrons from other substances like proteins and DNA to find a balance, which cause harmful chain reactions and our cells to oxidize. Antioxidants, which naturally occur within our body, scavenge and neutralize free radicals to a less toxic or non-toxic compound by giving up an electron. During this process antioxidants are also oxidized or changed or converted to other molecules. Because of these chemical changes, high doses of vitamin C, vitamin E or other antioxidants, individually or in limited combinations other than the synergistic one found in the Thione Complex™, antioxidants can actually become free radicals themselves making the very problem that they were intended to correct worse. The Thione Complex™ supplies the vital antioxidants needed to neutralize free radicals and regenerate oxidized antioxidants to their natural state, thereby improving the body’s ability to protect, restore and repair itself from the damage and ravages of the noxious free radicals.

As you can see, the antioxidant cycle in our body is made to restore itself, but when we add additional factors such as stress or tobacco smoke, this cycle is compromised and needs additional intake of synergistic antioxidants to help combat the effects of these excess free radicals. This is what makes Thione Complex Inside™ so unique. There are no other antioxidant compositions that can mimic the body’s natural antioxidant defense system like the Thione Complex™. Thione Complex Inside™ is our best defense to prevent disease and maintain a healthy life.

Do all Thione products containing the Complex have all-natural ingredients?

Yes, we are committed to only enhancing our body's antioxidant defense system. We do not add any artificial ingredients to our products.

Are Thione products approved by the FDA?

All of Thione's products are made in strict accordance to FDA regulations and copies of its labels and formulas are filed with the FDA. However, the FDA does not approve or disapprove of any dietary supplements.

What's the best way to ingest the ThioCare™ Oral Lozenge?

The tabs should be taken orally and allowed to dissolve in your mouth. It is best to take one tab in the morning and another in the evening.

Why do the ThioCare™ Oral Lozenge need to be dissolved in the mouth?

Being absorbed in the mouth allows for higher concentrations of antioxidants to be delivered quicker to affected areas and is distributed more evenly than a capsule sitting in the stomach.

Are the ThioCare™ Oral Lozenge gender specific?

All Thione products are made for both men and women.

What is the shelf life and how should it be stored?

Thione's products can be stored in a dry place at room temperature for up to two (2) years. All Thione products are marked with an expiration date.

Are steroids used in ThioSkin™ products?

No. ThioSkin™ cream, spray and shampoo contains zinc pyrithione, a non-steroidal treatment; an antimicrobial and skin healing agent that has been shown to be effective in treating dry, flkay, scaly skin conditions such as psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis. Also containing Thione Complex Inside™ to attack free radicals causing inflammation, which works at the source of the problem. Thione has developed a four-step regimen for gradual steroid tapering through the use of “compounding.” Click here for the four-step treatment program.
