Antioxidants

What are Antioxidants?

 Antioxidants are man-made or natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. Diets high in vegetables and fruits, which are good sources of antioxidants, have been found to be healthy; however, research has not shown antioxidant supplements to be beneficial in preventing diseases. Examples of antioxidants include vitamins C and E, selenium, and carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. This fact sheet provides basic information about antioxidants, summarizes what the science says about antioxidants and health, and suggests sources for additional information.

¿Qué son los antioxidantes?

Las células en su cuerpo están expuestas al oxígeno todo el día. El oxígeno es importante para la salud de su cuerpo, pero estar expuesto al oxígeno también causa oxidación. Durante la oxidación, las substancias químicas corporales se alteran, convirtiéndose en lo que se conoce como radicales libres. La exposición a factores ambientales tales como el sol, humo del cigarrillo, alcohol y la polución también crea radicales libres.

Con el tiempo, los radicales libres pueden desencadenar una reacción en su cuerpo que daña substancias químicas importantes, el ADN (DNA en inglés) y algunas partes de sus células. Algunas células pueden sanar pero en otras el daño es permanente. Los científicos creen que los radicales libres pueden contribuir al proceso de envejecimiento, al igual que al desarrollo de enfermedades tales como cáncer, diabetes y enfermedad del corazón.

Los antioxidantes son substancias que ocurren en la naturaleza y que pueden interrumpir o limitar el daño que los radicales libres han ocasionado. Su cuerpo utiliza antioxidantes para estabilizar los radicales libres. Esto les impide causar más daño en otras células. Los antioxidantes pueden proteger y revertir hasta cierto punto el daño que los antioxidantes han causado.

  • Ubiquinol is the reduced and active free radical quencher form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).* CoQ10 is found in all cells of the body, with especially high concentrations in the heart, and is essential to mitochondrial energy production and functions as a powerful, fat soluble, free radical scavenger.* These properties make Ubiquinol an ideal supplement for the support of energy production and free radical protection in the heart, vascular structures, brain and neurons.* Ubiquinol has been shown to be highly bioavailable and the addition of MCT Oil (medium chain triglycerides) to this product naturally improves its solubility and enhances intestinal absorption, thereby creating a product with superior biological value.*

  • Corydalis is an herb often used in traditional Chinese medicine for pain relief. Experts say it can be
used for headaches, menstrual pain and back pain – even back pain caused by nerve problems or muscle spasms.
Though corydalis has been used since ancient times, much of the modern research done on corydalis so far is still
in early stages. Studies done in animals suggest that corydalis may be effective at treating pain triggered by cold
and may help block inflammation and nerve pain.

  • What is Doctor’s Best Alpha-Lipoic Acid?
Alpha-lipoic acid is a sulfur-containing fatty acid that performs vitamin-like roles in the body. It functions as a co-enzyme in the metabolism of carbohydrates and is required for synthesis of acetyl CoA, a key metabolite in the cellular process that turns glucose (blood sugar) into energy. Because the body produces alpha-lipoic acid on its own, it is not classified as a true vitamin. But as with other non-essential nutrients, internal production may not always be optimal.

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid is a coenzyme and an antioxidant. It is referred to as the universal antioxidant because it is water and fat soluble, enabling it to function in both the membrane and aqueous parts of cells, to help fight cell-damaging free radicals in the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid supports the regeneration of glutathione, one of the body’s primary antioxidants, and helps to recycle Vitamins C and E, and Coenzyme Q10. In addition, it supports healthy nerve function and helps to metabolize sugar in the body.*
