5-IN-1 ANTIOXIDANT COMPLEX
Oxidative stress in the body is caused by free radicals. These are very reactive, unstable molecules that strive to compensate for their unstable state. They try to do this by ""attacking"" and damaging cell structures such as proteins or fatty acids. As protection against these attacks, the body has various defence mechanisms at its disposal. These include antioxidants, which act as radical scavengers and can counteract the formation of oxidative stress.
For our 100% plant-based Antioxidant Complex we combined highly concentrated and standardised extracts from fruits that are especially rich in antioxidants, namely Acai extract, Aronia extract, Pomegranate extract, Rosehip extract and Cranberry extract. They provide a variety of beneficial phytocompounds such as ellagic acid, flavonoids and proanthocyanidins which are known for their high antioxidant potential. Of course, our AntiOx Complex is non-GMO, free from additives and suitable for vegans.
The production of free radicals in the body cannot be prevented as it is a natural process caused by basic metabolic reactions. However, their formation is favoured by certain environmental influences such as cigarette smoke, alcohol consumption, UV rays, as well as by certain chemical substances. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals so they can’t damage healthy cells.
GOOD TO KNOW
Vitamins A, C and E, as well as certain minerals are also considered antioxidants.
Besides berries and other fruits, spices and herbs are also particularly rich in antioxidants.
