What is Complete Antioxidants?
Once an antioxidant finds its way into the body it slows down or even prevents the oxidation of other molecules. When molecules in the body oxidize, they can create free-radicals or cellular bi-products. It is very normal to have these free-radicals in the body, but in excess, they can wreak havoc on our cellular structures. Supplement Spot's Complete Antioxidants provides the anti-oxidants your body yearns that your diet may not otherwise provide.*
Supplement Spot's Complete Antioxidants ingredients:
Vitamin A is fat-soluble vitamin, powerful antioxidant. It plays a critical role in maintaining healthy vision, healthy skin, healthy bones, and more. Vitamin A — like all antioxidants — is involved in fighting free radical damage.*
It is water-soluble and is stored throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the adrenal glands. Vitamin C has many health benefits, but it is probably best known as a cell protector, a powerful antioxidant and for supporting healthy immune function.*
Research indicates that Vitamin E:*
- May support eye health
- Assists in the formation of red blood cells
- Supports healthy cardio function
- Supports healthy immune function
- Supports healthy skin and hair growth
- Helps the body make optimal use of Vitamin A and Iron
- Protects fatty acids in the body
- May support normal cholesterol levels
Until the late 1950's, selenium was thought to be toxic but is now known to be an essential trace mineral with antioxidant properties. Although it can indeed be toxic at high doses (more than one milligram a day), it is now recognized as an important element of nutrition. It helps protect cells against the effects of free radicals that are produced during normal oxygen metabolism.*
Grape Seed Extract:
Grape seed extract is thought to exert a powerful, positive influence on blood vessels. Grape seed extract is both water and fat-soluble and may, therefore, penetrate all types of cell membranes delivering powerful antioxidant protection. It is also one of the few antioxidants that can cross the blood-brain barrier, potentially helping to protect brain cells from free radical damage.
Pine Bark Extract:
Pine bark extract is made from the bark of the maritime pine tree (Pinus pinaster), which contains naturally occurring chemicals called proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins provide multiple health benefits including being a powerful antioxidant.
Alpha Lipoic Acid:
Scientists in the late 1980's discovered ALA possessed powerful antioxidant properties. It recycles other antioxidants, specifically Vitamin C and Vitamin E, enhancing their potency. ALA has the unique ability to be active in both water and fat compartments in the body, thus sometimes referred to as a "universal antioxidant”.
Research indicates that Calcium may:*
- Support bones and healthy teeth
- Help maintain normal PH levels
- Support normal blood clotting function
- Assists in transmission of nerve impulses
- Support healthy cholesterol levels
- Play an important role in producing hormones and enzymes that regulate digestion and metabolism
CoQ10 is an antioxidant that’s essential for the body's cells, tissues, and organs. CoQ10 is present everywhere in the body and without it, our cells can't function. Every cell needs this vital co-enzyme to create energy within the cell and keep up with life's unceasing demands on our bodies.
