Bluebonnet Nutrition Super Antioxidant Formula are specially formulated with a full range of potent antioxidants, including GliSODin, the first vegetarian form of SOD from cantaloupe melon, plus coenzyme Q10, Pycnogenol, red wine polyphenols and N-acetyl-cysteine in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption. Super Antioxidant Formula is gluten free.
Antioxidants remove potentially damaging oxidizing agents – known as free radicals – from within the body. Free radicals can damage DNA, as well as proteins and lipids within cells, altering or inhibiting cellular function. They may be generated by strenuous physical activity; physiological processes, especially in defense against microbes and other foreign substances; and especially exposure to harmful environmental factors, such as smog, ozone, chemicals, drugs, smoking and radiation. Dietary antioxidants – which include carotenoids and vitamins E and C – help control or eliminate free radicals by donating electrons to cells throughout the body. This offsets the potential damage caused by free radicals and helps maintain cellular health.
Exogenous antioxidants are available through the diet and include amino acids (N-acetyl-L-cysteine, taurine and L-glutathione), carotenoids (beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin), minerals (selenium and zinc) and vitamins C and E. Endogenous antioxidants are produced in the body and include ubiquinone/ubiquinol (CoQ10), alpha lipoic acid, and superoxide dismutase (SOD), the master cellular defense enzyme. However, supplementation of endogenous antioxidants is essential since many factors – the normal aging process, medications and oxidative stress – have been found to compromise their levels in the body.
As a dietary supplement, take three capsules daily, preferably with a meal or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
