What Is It?
Many antioxidants, once they have quenched a free radical, become mild free radicals themselves. But not those found in Antioxidant Synergy. This antioxidant formula is based on the interactions between specific antioxidants in the body known as the “networking antioxidants”. This “aniotixdant network” includes R-lipoic acid, vitamin E, vitamin C, coenzyme Q10 and N-acetyl-cysteine, with added support from selenium, resveratrol and rosemary extract.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Antioxidants benefit your health by cleaning free radicals out of your bloodstream. By protecting your cells from damage, they help protect against aging and disease. The networking antioxidants have a genuine synergy with one another. In fact, the ability of other antioxidants to play a protective role in the body depends on first having a functional antioxidant network. Networking antioxidants "recycle" one another from their "radicalized" forms back into their active, antioxidant forms. By this process of mutual regeneration, networking antioxidants enhance and extend one another's capacities.
Who Should Take It?
Those looking to make the most out of their antioxidant supplements should make Antioxidant Synergy their staple. Antioxidants promote general health and longevity.
Take 1 capsule four times daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
