WHAT IS IN THE MEDICINE?
Many diseases and symptoms of premature aging are associated with the accumulation of free radicals in the body. Free radicals are highly reactive and unstable chemicals formed during normal physiological and biochemical processes such as respiration, metabolism and immune system response. Antioxidants function as scavengers to detoxify these free radicals. This nutritional supplement combines vitamins A, C, E, and zinc, antioxidant nutrients that protect cells from harmful free radicals and help boost immune function.
ANTIOXIDANT AND OTHER FUNCTIONS
- A fat-soluble antioxidant which stabilizes and protects against free radicals in the lipid (fat) phase of cells
- Stimulates the production of T-lymphocytes, important immune cells which protect the body against harmful bacteria, parasites and viruses
- Helps maintain the normal health and function of the skin which provides the first line of defense against invading microorganisms
- Helps maintain normal vision
- Deficiency of vitamin A results in hyperkeratosis (thickening of palms, soles, elbows, knees, wrists, and ankles), impaired immune function, and nightblindess
- The major water-soluble antioxidant which acts as first defense against free radicals in the aqueous (water) phase including blood, plasma and other intracellular and extracellular fluids
- Cofactor of enzymes involved in the formation of collagen, the most abundant protein essential in the formation of bones, teeth, cartilage, and skin. Collagen provides elasticity to the skin and helps promote faster wound healing.
- Forms part of the body’s natural immune system; stimulates the activity of antibodies and immune cells which inhibit foreign antigens harmful to the body
- Deficiency of vitamin C results in delayed wound healing, impaired immune function and scurvy manifested as weakness, shortness of breath, muscle cramps, dry, rough and feverish skin covered with reddish-blue spots, and bleeding gums
- The major fat-soluble antioxidant which stabilizes and protects against free radicals in the lipid (fat) phase of cells
- Helps maintain healthy skin by inhibiting the formation of lipofuscin, a brown pigment that accumulates in tissues during aging
- Deficiency in vitamin E results in various neurological disorders, skin damage, hemolytic anemia (breakdown of red blood cells), retinopathy (defective eye function), and abnormalities in function of platelets and lymphocytes (white blood cells)
- Essential for skin integrity, wound healing and acts as cofactor of various enzymes involved in cell division and growth
- A cofactor of the enzyme superoxide dismutase which is involved in the removal of harmful free radicals.
- Required for the normal development and maintenance of the immune system; helps regulate the activity of cells involved in immune function
- Deficiency in zinc results in dermatitis of extremities or limbs, delayed skeletal maturation, impaired immune infection, diarrhea, and growth retardation
