Today, whether you live in urban areas or rural locations, we are routinely exposed to tens of thousands of man-made chemical toxins, which were not found in our environment even 20 years ago. When these chemicals enter our bodies through food, water, and air, each one of the must be completely broken down by the liver before they can be safely excreted from the body via the waste mater. In the process of this breakdown or oxidation, free radicals are formed, which can cause thousands of biochemical problems within the living system of the body, the worst of which is genetic mutation.
Antioxidants are nutrients, which have the ability to prevent damage to healthy living tissue and cell structures from these free radicals. Still other nutrients have the ability to scavenge existing free radicals and destroy them before they can cause harm. By combining these two groups of nutrients together into one formulation, we have been able to come up with a protocol, which has been proven through diagnostic testing, to reduce free radical activity within the body to normal levels. Anyone who wants to provide their body with extra protection from the ravages of free radicals from a polluted world should consider this protocol in their daily routine of nutritional supplementation.
