Food-Grown® Antioxidant Plus has been formulated using ingredients with exceptional antioxidant properties to maximize your protection against free radical damage. An excess of free radical damage, or oxidative stress, from nutrient-low diets, environmental pollutants, stress or illness can result in damage to cellular DNA and speed up the ageing process. This can influence the health of your skin, bones, hormonal equilibrium and immune defences. Increasing your intake of antioxidants plays an important role in protection against premature ageing and the development of degenerative diseases. Each cell in your body has a powerhouse factory called the ‘mitochondria’. This drives everything from energy production to the metabolism of nutrients. These power-houses are very vulnerable to ‘toxicity’, most especially from free radicals and therefore require extra antioxidant support to ensure their smooth running.This formula also promotes the natural production of glutathione – the body’s master antioxidant.
