A new and improved concept in Antioxidant Protection
Power AntioxidantTM is a unique dietary supplement that
contains a powerful array of eleven herbal and nutritional
antioxidants and supporting herbs. This combination contains two
patent-pending herbal extracts from Sabinsa Corporation: Curcumin C
Complex derived from the fruits of the black pepper plant. Also
included is a green tea extract that contains over 50% polyphenols - a
class of plant principles which have powerful antioxidant properties.
Selenium is supplied in the organically-bound amino acid form of
L-selenomethionine, and is recognized as a powerful antioxidant trace
mineral. Other herbs and spices with traditional adaptogen,
preservation, or antioxidant properties include: Ginseng root, ginger
rhizome, cranberry fruit, Astragalus root, lemon peel, and allspice
Why Take Antioxidants?
Antioxidants have been around since life began. Basically they are
natural substances found in plants and animals that protect the fats,
oils, proteins, and nucleic acids from premature aging and destruction
from ultraviolet light found in sunlight, cosmic radiation, chemicals,
internally generated free radicals, etc. Certain spices such as ginger
and turmeric were used as natural food "preservatives" long before the
word "antioxidant" was coined. Basically, certain spices, herbs and
nutrients, called antioxidants, help prevent damage to fats, oils,
proteins, and nucleic acids in plant and animal tissues by
neutralizing destructively active molecules called "free radicals."
Examples of damage include rancid butter, rancid cooking oils and
older refrigerated cooked meats. Rancidity is often described as an
unfresh, refrigerator-like taste. Other examples of antioxidant
activity include extreme skin wrinkling on those who get excessive sun
exposure. In this case, skin loses its flexibility because parallel
protein fibers become cross-linked. Other examples include: car
dashboards with sun and heat cracks, warped, wrinkled vinyl, cracked
inflexible garden hoses left out in direct sunlight. Dietary
antioxidants basically slow down free radical damage by quenching and
neutralizing excess free radicals, and preventing their destructive
effects upon the body's oils, fats, proteins, nucleic acids and other
sensitive materials. While excess free radicals are undsirable, the
body does need and use some free radicals it generates, such as
hydrogen peroxide and the superoxide radical, as part of the immune
system, to attack and kill invading bacteria. So, it is not desirable
to eliminate all free radicals, just excess production which can
damage the body's cells and tissues.
Why Combine Antioxidants?
Antioxidants often work synergistically with each other-that is the
action of two or more antioxidants is often greater than the sum of
their individual components. Futhermore, different antioxidants may
neutralize different varieties of free radicals; and some antioxidants
seem to gravitate toward different parts of the body. For example,
turmeric appears to have an affinity toward the liver, while selenium
concentrates in the skeletal muscles and heart muscles.
Power Antioxidant is a blend of patent-pending herbal extracts;
as well as antioxidant green tea extract, organically-bound
selenium, and several highly desirable herbal materials. Just
two capsules of Power Antioxidant daily supply 480 mg of
patent-pending extracts of 90-95% curcuminoids derived from
the spice turmeric. These curcuminoids are regarded as strong
antioxidant substances, and are called Curcumin C3 Complex.
Also included is 5 mg of patent-pending piperine extract, called
Bioperine, containing 95-98% piperine, which is derived from
the fruits of the black pepper plant. Two capsules also supply
60 mcg of organically-bound selenium from L-selenomethionine,
and 461 mg of herbs and extracts including: Green tea extract
with over 50% polyphenols (strong antioxidant substances), as
well as cabbage powder, Korean Ginseng root, Astragalus root,
cranberry fruit, ginger rhizome, allspice, and lemon peel.
