Hazle Drugs own unique brand of AntiOxidant Essentials contains a varied blend of nutritional antioxidants to help neutralize a range of free radical molecules.
Free radicals are constantly being created in the body, from normal physiological processes. Free radical production is a consequence of energy production in the cells.
In the immune system white blood cells actually use free radicals as a weapon to destroy foreign invaders, such as bacteria and viruses. Free radicals are also generated from exposure to chemicals, drugs, smog, and radiation. Evidence suggests that oxidative stress contributes to the development of many common health problems, including atherosclerosis and diabetes. In addition, it is implicated in the aging process, in part through negative effects on mitochondrial DNA.
Antioxidant nutrients are necessary to protect the body from the destructive effects of harmful molecules that cause oxidation. Hazle Drug’s AntiOxidant Essentials provides a comprehensive blend of water soluble antioxidants (including Vitamin C and glutathione) and fat-soluble antioxidants (including Vitamin A and Vitamin E). Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant capable of neutralizing both fat- and water-soluble free radicals. Zinc, copper and manganese are necessary components of the endogenous antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase. Also included in this formulation is Vitamin E, Vitamin B-2, Vitamin B-6, Selenium, N-Acetyl-Cysteine, L-Cysteine HCL, L-Glutathione and Quercetin. This product contains NO added sugar, salt, dairy, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, preservative, artificial colors or flavors.
Hazle Drug’s brand of AntiOxidant Essentials may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to be on a disease prevention or anti-aging supplement program and for those who are exposed to chemicals, drugs, smog, or radiation.
