Super Antioxidant, a proanthocyanidin formulation of several antioxidants, includes two of the most powerful natural free radical scavengers available. According to research, when antioxidants are formulated together they are 15 times more effective than when used by themselves. Antioxidants can help reduce oxidative damage to vital tissues. Experts agree that free radical damage is a factor in degenerative conditions, and that antioxidants may be helpful in reducing that damage. Super Antioxidant is your completely natural choice for a powerful antioxidant.
According to Richard A. Passwater, Ph.D., author of New Superantioxidant Plus, this "complex of powerful antioxidant ingredients that are patented for use to scavenge free radicals... can help you live longer, stay healthier and appear more youthful... can help protect you from approximately eighty diseases, including: heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and most other non-germ diseases that are linked to the deleterious chemical action of free radicals." These scavengers remain in the blood stream for 72 hours giving extended free radical protection. He also stated that the brain and nerve tissues are protected due to its nearly unique ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Dr. Passwater indicates these proanthocyanidins bioflavonoids do more than protect. They help in cell reparation by improving and stabilizing the skin protein collagen and improving the condition of arteries and capillaries. The biochemical properties of these substances that are responsible for their many benefits are: free radical scavenging, collagen (a skin protein) binding, inhibition of inflammatory enzymes, and inhibition of histamine formation. It reduces the oxidative damage to vital tissues and unlike virtually all other dietary antioxidants; Pycnogenol readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to protect vital brain and nerve tissues from oxidation.
Super Antioxidant has been formulated to provide comprehensive nutritional protection for the eyes. Each serving contains 10 mg of available Lutein, a critical pigment of the macula, lens, and other ocular tissues. Lutein is a powerful antioxidant related to beta-carotene that defends the eye from the ravages of sunlight. Vista Health Products has also included Green Tea Extract, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Grape Seed Extract, and other synergists in this formula to maximize its antioxidant potential.
