What are Antioxidants? Anything that begins with “Anti” usually seems like it may end in a negative way. However, Antioxidants help prevent or stop cell damage caused by oxidants. It would seem to be at our peak performance all we need to do is overload our bodies with the Antioxidants and VOILA!
Not so simple. We do need to keep our Antioxidant levels higher than our toxins obviously but having too much of a good thing isn’t always the best outcome. So how can I test for antioxidants and know which antioxidants I have and what I may need? Testing for vitamin, mineral and Antioxidant deficiencies which have shown to affect the immune system and may contribute to degenerative processes such as arthritis. Adding a combination of E, A, Lipoic Acid, CoQ10 and specifically Glutathione, which is known as “the mother of all antioxidants” maintain healthy energy, metabolism, stress response and Antioxidant Defenses!
