Antioxidant therapy offers natural solutions to combating
oxidative stress that causes a range of health issues from heart
disease to diabetes. Our bodies are often unable to keep up with
the production of antioxidants needed to fight off free radicals.
What Are Free Radicals?
Free radicals are unstable molecules trying to regain their
stability by taking the electron they are lacking from other
molecules. The process of oxidation in the body can create free
radicals when electrons are transferred making a new molecule
that is missing an electron. Some amount of free radicals in the
body is normal and necessary and are controlled by antioxidants
in the body deactivating them by supplying the missing electron.
The problem comes in when an over abundance of free radicals
exists and the body does not have enough naturally occurring
antioxidants to combat them. This can be caused by inflammation,
strenuous exercise, exposure to various chemicals, radiation,
alcohol, air pollutants, cigarette smoke and diets high in fat.
Without enough antioxidants to fight free radicals and neutralize
them, the body undergoes oxidative damage as an effect of being
attacked by the free radicals.
How Antioxidant Therapy Can Help
Antioxidants can change free radicals into stable oxygen and
protect cells from oxidative damage. Antioxidants also help with
cellular repair even if the DNA has been subjected to damage by
free radicals. They replace lipids in the membranes that have
been damaged and act as cleansers or scavengers for free
radicals. "Researchers at Oregon State University in Corvallis
are starting to recognize that pigment particles in blue-green
algae may have an antioxidant effect in humans, preventing
unstable compounds from damaging healthy cells." (Jeffrey Bruno
PhD, Edible Microalgae)
Sources of Antioxidant Therapy
The best sources for antioxidants is from natural whole foods.
Sprouts, blue-green algae, coenzyme Q10, edible grasses, Ginkgo
biloba, turmeric, green tea, essential oils, garlic, soy and
green foods all fall into this category. With the number of
stressors in today's lifestyles and especially as we age, it is
difficult to get all the antioxidants we need from food sources
however. Super Blue Green Algae has been shown to have 5 times
more antioxidant capacity than blueberries, which are known to be
a good source of antioxidants. Supplementing your diet with Super
Blue Green Algae is obviously a superior natural solution to
supplement your body with antioxidants.
Antioxidant Therapy: CoQ10
CoQ10 is a co-enzyme that is in every cell of the human body. Low
levels of CoQ10 in the body are linked to muscle weakness,
neurologic defects, mental retardation, congestive heart failure,
obesity, hypertension, fatigue, angina and compromised immune
system function. Using supplements with CoQ10 offers natural
solutions to a variety of health issues through antioxidant
therapy. Simplexity Health's Super Q10 contains 82% of the daily
value of antioxidant vitamin A (beta-carotene) and supports heart
health and the body's defense system with a combination of
antioxidants, coenzyme Q10, and Super Blue Green Algae.
Antioxidant Therapy: Sprouts and Algae
Another natural supplement for antioxidant therapy is Super
Sprouts and Algae from Simplexity Health. This supplement
contains an abundance of antioxidant nutrition which can help
neutralize free radicals before they cause cell damage. It also
provides a superior blend of custom grown wheat sprouts, Super
Blue Green Alpha Sun Algae and red beta algae.
Antioxidant Therapy: Immusun
Immusun from Simplexity Health is another good natural solution
to keeping your immune system healthy. It contains the active
ingredient WGP beta glucan, a patented form of the complex
carbohydrate beta glucan. Studies show that WGP beta glucan is
able to activate white blood cells that are the body's first line
of defense and circulate through the body digesting foreign
To keep your immune system in good working order, give it a
little help with Super Blue Green Alpha Sun Algae, Immusun,
Sprouts and Algae and Super Q10 to get the antioxidant therapy
your body needs.
