Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals.In 1956, Dr. Denham Harmon hypothesized that free radicals are responsible for the aging process. Years later Harmon proposed a revision to the free radical theory by including the mitochondria and its key role in aging. Since then, much correlative evidence supporting the theory has been published.
AntioxidantBalance® provides a balanced blend of anti-aging nutrients designed to support healthy mitochondrial function and protect cells against free radical damage.*
L-carnitine is an amino acid-derived compound necessary for transport of long chain fatty acids as fuel into the mitochondria. Alpha lipoic acid is unique in that,
like vitamin C, it is effective as an antioxidant in water-based phases such as blood;yet as its reduced metabolite, dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), it is also effective in protecting fatty tissues and membranes, a role shared with vitamin E. Alpha lipoic acid is a highly effective nutritional antioxidant in bolstering cellular and tissue levels of g lutathione.* CoQ10 is an antioxidant and is essential for the conversion of the food we eat into energy. L-carnitine, alpha lipoic acid and CoQ10 are used together because of their uniquely beneficial interplay within the mitochondria.
