Pioneer Antioxidants offers a sophisticated, broad-spectrum blend of 400 IU vitamin E, standardized herbs, Green Foods, vitamins, minerals and amino acid antioxidant cofactors.
Although oxygen is absolutely essential for human life, it is also responsible for much of the cell damage and physical debilitation associated with aging and certain disease states.
Free radicals are highly-reactive, oxygen-containing chemicals formed as by-products of normal cellular metabolism, or in response to external stimuli such as air pollution, cigarette smoke, herbicides, pesticides, environmental toxins, drugs, radiation, fried foods and alcohol. Free radicals are toxic because they can attack and weaken cell membranes, inactivate enzymes and damage genetic material in the cell nucleus. Free radical exposure can result in premature aging, cellular mutation and death.
The body's own vital free-radical scavenging enzymes include superoxide dysmutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase, and cata-lase. Although research shows that taking such enzymes orally does not directly increase their levels in tissues, taking antioxidant vitamins and cofactors (vitamins C, E, B1 and B2, beta carotene, selenium, zinc, manganese and others) can raise levels by supporting enzyme production. In this and other ways, antioxidants help prevent oxygen from damaging body cells.
Consider These Advantages: 1.Comprehensive and Absorbable. Pioneer Antioxidants contains an exceptionally wide array of vitamin, mineral and plant antioxidants and their precursors in highly bioavailable forms.
2.High Levels of Vitamin E and Beta Carotene. 400 IU of vitamin E and 25,000 IU of beta carotene eliminate the need for additional supplementation in most people.
3.Tissue-Specific Herbal Bioflavonoids. Flavonoids are a large group of natural plant pigments that appear to enhance the body's natural defense system. They are also active scavengers of oxidants and free radicals. Various flavonoids found in Milk Thistle, Ginkgo Biloba, Hawthorn, Bilberry, and Turmeric have affinity for different body tissues and act in those tissues as cellular antioxidants. Herbal equivalency per two tablets of Pioneer Antioxidants is 2870 mg, from seven different plants.
4.Highest Quality Standardized Herbs. Growing conditions, harvesting and curing procedures, processing and packaging methods all impact the final effectiveness of a finished herbal product. Pioneer uses only herbal extracts that have been concentrated and analytically measured to be sure they contain stated amounts of known active ingredients.
5.Water-Soluble and Fat-Soluble Vitamin C. In addition to naturally buffered, water-soluble mixed mineral ascorbates, Pioneer Antioxidants contains ascorbyl palmitate, a fat-soluble form of vitamin C. Fat-soluble vitamin C can penetrate tissue areas that are inaccessible to water-soluble forms (such as the lipid portion of cell membranes), providing more complete protection from free radical attack.
6.Sulfur-Containing Amino Acid Antioxidants. N-Acetyl l-cysteine is required for the production of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione. L-taurine may protect cell membranes by reducing toxic compounds such as oxidants and secondary bile acids.
7.Spirulina and Blue-Green Algae. Our natural, whole Green Foods are rich in chlorophyll, beta carotene, trace minerals and B vitamins, including B12.
8.Amla (Indian Gooseberry). Greatly revered in the Indian Ayurvedic tradition, vitamin C-rich Amla is regarded as one of the most important general tonifying herbs.
