Antioxidants & Healthy Aging
Collagen is essential for the structure and function of connective tissues, which bond other tissues and organs together. Collagen is also the most integral part of the skin’s fabric and naturally forms its mesh-like structure. Aging is closely associated with the loss of collagen and the deterioration of connective tissues; therefore, supplementation with collagen can help to counteract these negative consequences. In addition to three types of collagen, this product provides glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) such as hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate. GAGs are required for healthy structure and function of connective tissues, including joints and the skin dermis. Vitamin C is an antioxidant as well as an essential...Full Details
Resveratrol is a plant compound found in red grapes, peanuts, berries, and the Japanese knotweed plant. A number of plants produce resveratrol in response to stress, injury, infection or UV radiation. In 1992, researchers speculated that resveratrol may explain the "French Paradox" - the observation that (generally speaking) despite smoking plus a diet high in fat, the French have lower mortality from heart disease - which may be explained by their frequent wine consumption. In vitro, resveratrol has been shown to neutralize free radicals, inhibit LDL ("bad" cholesterol) oxidation, platelet aggregation (blood clotting) and inflammatory enzymes, and stimulate eNOS (an enzyme that catalyzes nitric oxide formation...Full Details
In a healthy adult, 95 percent or more of the total CoQ10 in the body is in the ubiquinol form. In addition, ubiquinol is required for 95 percent of cellular energy production by cellular mitochondria and is found in every cell in the body. The highest concentration of this nutrient is in the heart. Taking a ubiquinol supplement helps to maintain healthy, natural levels of ubiquinol in the body and prevents oxidative stress and damage from free radicals.
