Nutrition | Antioxidant

Antioxidants are compounds that protect cells against the damaging effects of reactive oxygen species, such as singlet oxygen, superoxide, peroxyl radicals, hydroxyl radicals and peroxynitrite. An imbalance between antioxidants and reactive oxygen species results in oxidative stress, leading to cellular damage. Oxidative stress has been linked to cancer, aging, atherosclerosis, ischemic injury, inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson''s and Alzheimer''s). Flavonoids may help provide protection against these diseases by contributing, along with antioxidant vitamins and enzymes, to the total antioxidant defense system of the human body. Epidemiological studies have shown that flavonoid intake is inversely related to mortality from coronary heart disease and to the incidence of heart attacks.

This is a very good article on antioxidants. The World's Most Powerful Antioxidant is NOT found in a Berry, a Fruit or a Drink.

It's already in your body!

It's called Glutathione.

Go to for more information and clinical studies on Glutathione and listen to Dr. Keller, one of the top physicians and scientist in the world, talk about it.

Please have a fantastic day.
