Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful endogenous antioxidant known to combat various forms of oxidative stress and to recycle other antioxidants. Together with glutathione, they protect the fat and water portions of the cells from different types of free radicals.
RiboCeine™ is a breakthrough nutrient compound clinically proven to deliver the key precursor nutrient, cysteine, to the cell. RiboCeine enables the cell to produce optimal levels of glutathione. Backed by 25 years of research and 20 published and peer-reviewed scientific studies funded by the National Institutes of Health and other scientific institutions, RiboCeine was proven to significantly outperformed all other means of glutathione enhancement.
Broccoli Seed Extract (sulforaphane glucosinolate) acts as a catalyst to boost antioxidant activity for as much as three days. Protects against DNA damaging electrophiles and helps cells neutralize toxins and carcinogens so they are eliminated from cells. It also helps to raise and replenish glutathione levels and induces the antioxidant enzymes used in the Phase II detoxification pathway.
Turmeric Root Extract (Curcumin) is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals and is known to reduce inflammation. Curcumin also induces Phase II enzymes that support the glutathione detoxification pathway.
Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in high concentrations in grape skin, also found in wines, with higher concentrations in red wine verse white wine. Resveratrol is thought to account in a large part for the so called ‘French Paradox’. The French Paradox – the findings that the rate of coronary heart disease in France was observed to be lower than in other countries with a similar risk factor – has been attributed to the consumption of red wine. Resveratrol is an antioxidant known to have cardio-protective properties.
Quercetin is a supporting flavonoid antioxidant that scavenges free radicals that can damage cells. One of the highest food sources of quercetin can be found in the tiny caper. Other food sources include: raw dock, dill, red onion and watercress.
Selenomethionine (Selenium) is the essential catalytic component of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and is absolutely required for its function. Selenium is needed as selenomethionine for the antioxidant enzyme, glutathione peroxidase. The glutathione peroxidase enzyme is responsible for the detoxification of lipid peroxides, and glutathione is absolutely required to regenerate this enzyme.
Cordyceps has been used as a Chinese medicine for centuries and has been valued for its activity in restoring energy, increasing stamina, promoting longevity and improving quality of life.
Black Pepper (BioPerine) assists in the absorption of selenomethionine, vitamin C and curcumin (turmeric root)
Aloe Extract has the most bio-active content of acemannan, the active ingredient in aloe. Aloe is known to support the immune system and has antioxidant functions.
Milk Thistle (silymarin) is a powerful antioxidant used to support a healthy liver by removing harmful toxins and heavy metals that are stored in the liver.
