Antioxidant supplements are your best defence against the damage that free radicals can cause in your body. It is believed that free radicals play a role in more than sixty different health conditions, including the aging process, cancer and cardiovascular disease. Antioxidant supplements are also thought to play a role in helping prevent and + Read more >
treat respiratory illnesses such as asthma. Reducing exposure to free radicals and increasing our intake of antioxidant supplements has the potential to reduce the risk of many of these free radical-related health problems. Dietary antioxidant (most commonly found in foods) is a substance that significantly decreases the harmful effects of "reactive species", such as reactive oxygen and nitrogen molecules. These molecules disrupt normal physiological function on a cellular level in humans, leading to health problems. Antioxidant supplements provide the beneficial nutrients vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and the carotenoids. Many other nutrients including minerals such as copper, manganese and zinc, flavonoids (such as grape seed extract and phenols from green tea) and coenzyme Q10 also possess important antioxidant properties. Supporting your body’s abilities to fight the free radicals that harm our health is easy to do with the quality antioxidant supplements from Body Energy Club’s online discount vitamin store. Before starting any new nutritional and multivitamin supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.
Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound found in various berries (cranberry, blueberry, grapes) and herbs. Studies with trans-resveratrol have reported a diverse range of benefits in the areas of heart health, immunity and inflammation. Research has also revealed that trans-resveratrol mimics the biological longevity effects of a calorie-restricted diet. There is no doubt that many among us, in the context of dinner-party banter or some other setting conducive to the transfer of anecdotal wisdom, have heard that a glass of wine a day is good for your health. ‘A healthy heart and a long life' is usually the jist of this particular nugget of scientifically secular populist enlightenment. The long life that is inferred is attributable to a substance that the scientifically observant elite have identified as resveratrol, a phytonutrient originating -in this case - in the vinyards. Resveratrol, in turn, elicits this wondrous effect largely by mimicking many of the biological chain of events seen in the practice of Calorie Restriction Optimum Nutrition (CRON), or simply Caloric Restriction (CR).$33.88
Aor Active Green Tea is a high-potency standardized extract of green tea, high in epigallocatechin gallate, believed to be the key phytonutrient in green tea, responsible for its health benefits. Studies most consistently report health benefits in persons drinking ten cups a day of high-EgCG sencha-style Japanese green tea; each cup of this tea contains 150 milligrams of EgCG. The labels of most green tea extracts exaggerate the number of cups of tea represented in their capsules by comparing the product to poor-quality teas. Active Green Tea allows you to more fully enjoy the healthy properties of a sencha-rich lifestyle without consuming large volumes of tea.

Antioxidant Synergy includes the complete "Antioxidant Network," the body's five-member antioxidant defense and recycling system. Most antioxidants lose their protective power once they have quenched a single free radical. These five antioxidants - R(+)-lipoic acid (the natural mitochondrial form of lipoic acid), the complete vitamin E complex (tocopherols and tocotrienols), vitamin C (in both fat- and water-soluble forms), glutathione (as effective precursors), and coenzyme Q10 - are unique in their synergistic ability to "recycle" one another into their active antioxidant forms. Selenium (an essential cofactor of the enzyme thioredoxin reductase) and flavonoids are proven network "boosters.

Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid that offers exceptional protection to the cell membrane from lipid peroxidation. It is 550 times more potent than Vitamin E in this role, and 40 times more potent than beta-carotene in quenching singlet oxygen free radicals. Studies have shown astaxanthin to be effective for ocular, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health.

C+ Bioflavonoids contains pure vitamin C with the synergistic action of citrus bioflavonoids, rich in eriocitrin, hesperidin, neohesperidin, and other flavonols, flavanones, and flavones and their glycosides. Bioflavonoids synergistically support the functions of vitamin C, "recharging" oxidized ascorbate and apparently assisting in the maintenance of capillaries, as well as being potent phenolic antioxidants in their own right.

Carnosine is a dipeptide found in high concentrations in brain and muscle tissues. A potent inhibitor of damage to proteins from sugar (glycation) and scavenger of free radicals, carnosine has been shown to reverse cellular senescence in culture. Preliminary evidence suggests that it may provide support conditions of sub-optimal brain homocarnosine metabolism leading to impairment in social interaction, communication, stereotyped behavior, and symbolic or imaginative interaction.
