ANTI OXIDANTS SUPPLEMENTS
KEY ANTI OXIDANTS SUPPLEMENTS
Super Oxide Dismutase, Vitamin C, Glutathione Peroxidase, Quercetin, Bilirubin
ANTI OXIDANTS IN WEIGHT LOSS
How Excess Cellular Oxidation Creates Weight Gain:
New research demonstrates Oxidative Stress impairs glucose homeostasis. This means Oxidative Stress promotes insulin resistance.
Ironically, excess sugar consumption promotes Oxidative Stress.
Moderate and careful Anti-Oxidant supplementation may serve a vital role in the prevention of age related weight gain and metabolic damage from sugar and processed food by reducing oxidative stress.
ANTI OXIDANTS FOODS:
Montmorency Cherries, Red
Peppers, Kakadu Plums,
capers, apples, blueberries,
onions, barley grass,broccoli
The primary function of anti-oxidants are to protect against Oxidative Stress.
Oxidative Stress is a state of imbalance between Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and natural protections within the cell.
ROS are formed within the mitochodria and external to the cell by reaction of unstable molecules. ROS are vital to many important cellular signalling functions (REDOX signalling).
Your cells have natural mechanisms for reducing ROS such as SuperOxide DIsmutase, Glutathione Peroxidase and Catylase. When these systems become overwhelmed by excess ROS, a state of Oxidative Stress occurs.
Think of Oxidative Stress as a state of accelerated cellular rusting.
LITTLE KNOWN FACT
Enzymes are the most powerful class of anti-oxidants.
The most powerful anti-oxidants, Super Oxide Dismutase, Catylase and Gutathione Peroxidase are all enzymes.
