For anyone seeking to shield the cells and protect the heart, mind, and whole body from the harmful free radicals floating about throughout the body mass.
•This unique formula promotes cellular signaling and helps with the generation of oxygen radicals is a result of normal metabolism and is crucial for certain cellular events. When the production of oxygen radicals becomes excessive, deleterious biological processes begin to accumulate. Your body struggles to keep these oxygen radicals, or reactive oxygen species (ROS), in check. Especially in today's environment your body has difficulty suppressing the negative effects of ROS. For example, the harmful effects of cholesterol are due to the peroxidation caused by ROS of lipids (fat), carried in the LDL particle. Therefore, MHL has formulated the Elite AntiOxidant Formula to help your body control free radicals in the body.Beta carotene is the precursor to vitamin A which has several biological functions including acting as a potent anti-oxidant making beta carotene particularly useful for the maintenance of eye health.
•High gamma vitamin E (also known as tocopherols) are fat-soluble vitamins that help protect fatty cell membranes from oxidizing. The mixed, high gamma tocopherols used in our formulas are much more effective and safer than d-alpha tocopherols. This lipid antioxidant helps keep unsaturated fats (such as omega-3 fatty acids) in cellular membranes from oxidizing as well as prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol which, when oxidized, becomes one of the major players in atherosclerosis. Vitamin E also helps cells` surface receptors "hear" the signals of critical hormonal messengers.
•Tocotrienols are a form of vitamin E but function differently. These are powerful anti-oxidants that have been shown to protect nerve cells from cell death. Their potent anti-oxidant effects have been suggested to benefit a number of conditions including cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disorders, cholesterol/atherosclerosis, and cancer. Related to the impact on cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis, tocotrienols have been shown to reduce the activity of the enzyme (HMG-CoA) responsible for synthesizing cholesterol.
•CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10), or ubiquinone, is a naturally-occurring nutrient found in nearly every cell of the body. Found in highest concentration in cell mitochondria (where energy is produced), its primary function is to help convert food into energy. Although CoQ10 is involved in every bodily process that requires energy, it`s believed to be of fundamental importance in cells with high metabolic demands, such as cardiac cells. The heart, with extremely high energy requirements, requires especially high amounts of CoQ10. Studies show that CoQ10 supports healthy blood pressure, promotes healthy immune-system function, and may reduce risk of cancer.
•Phosphatidyl Serine (PS) is a nutrient that maintains the integrity of cell membranes and protects cells against age-related deterioration. PS has been shown to be effective at helping to improve memory and neural function.
•Vitamin K2 is critical in regulating calcium metabolism and helps control where it is deposited in the body. Vitamin K2 "holds" calcium and therefore plays a role in keeping it out of arteries. Although Vitamin K2 is naturally manufactured by bacteria in the colon, our society's extensive overuse of antibiotics has resulted in a population with inadequate quantities of this vital fat-soluble vitamin. Vitamin K2 is particularly bio-available and is also critical to bone strength.
•The Elite AntiOxidant Formula is a great product to take in combination with Cholestat, which has potent anti-oxidation ability and impact on cholesterol.
Moreover, levels of CoQ10 tend to be lower in people with high cholesterol compared to healthy individuals of the same age. In addition, certain cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (such as cerivastatin, pravastatin and simvastatin) appear to deplete natural levels of CoQ10 in the body. Taking CoQ10 supplements can correct the deficiency caused by statin medications without affecting the medication`s positive effects on cholesterol levels.
