The major body systems targeted by Antiox Plus are:
To help maintain good blood flow especially to extremities including feet and hands. Most of the ingredients, especially OPC help with this.
To help maintain airways and general respiratory health. OPC and Quercetin play a major role.
To help organize and help immune responses. Most of the ingredients help here but Quercetin has a major role.
Brain and nerve support:
OPC and some of the other antioxidants cross the blood-brain barrier to help with brain circulation and to protect nerves from damage. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a known protector of nerve cells.
Accelerated cell aging is the main cause of premature aging. Resveratrol and OPC play a significant role.
Most of detoxification from environmental toxins and prescribed medications takes place in the liver. One of the most common causes of liver damage from medicines is paracetamol over-use. OPC (and the other antioxidants) help with detoxification. N- acetylcysteine is included to Antiox Plus primarily because it helps recycle the enzyme Glutathione which is depleted by long term paracetamol use. Maintaining good levels of Glutathione is essential for healthy liver function. It is worth noting that the main role of selenium in the body is the manufacture of Glutathione. Cell eXtra contains the maximum selenium permitted in NZ.
Caution: Do not use while on blood thinners without professional advice.
