Problems with Antioxidants
you know that once many antioxidants have quenched a free radical, they
actually become mild free radicals themselves? Do not be concerned!
This is a natural and quite important part of the oxidation-reduction
signaling process. However, when some antioxidants are consumed in
excess, they can actually cause more damage than good! The most well
studied example of this phenomenon is tocopherol-mediated peroxidation,
or TMP, in which vitamin E family members block an incoming free radical
from attacking a particle of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, but the
“radicalized” antioxidant then initiates a slower, more insidious
pattern of lipid peroxidation. Several studies suggest that TMP may play
a devastating role in the long-term development of atherosclerosis. So
then yet other antioxidants are required to quench this process. But
some antioxidants are more effective in certain locations in the body
than others, meaning that you need to take the right antioxidants to
halt this vicious cycle of antioxidants turning pro-oxidant! How can
this vicious cycle be stopped?
The One & Only Antioxidant Network
vicious cycle of oxidation can be prevented through taking advantage of
the unique synergistic interactions of an elite antioxidant strike
force: the Networking Antioxidants. When taken together, these specific,
biologically essential nutrients form a dynamic team of synergistic
co-antioxidants. Networking antioxidants can recycle one another from
their radicalized forms back into their active, antioxidant forms. By
this process of mutual regeneration, networking antioxidants enhance and
extend one another’s capacities, working within and around the
mitochondria where most of the oxidation occurs. There are exactly five
networking antioxidants: R (+)-lipoic acid, the vitamin E complex
(including the four tocopherols and four tocotrienols), vitamin C,
coenzyme Q10, and glutathione (GSH).
The networking antioxidants
have a genuine synergy with one another. The effects of each networking
antioxidant support greater functionality of the antioxidant network as a
whole. No other antioxidants participate in the interlocking cycles of
the antioxidant network. In fact, the ability of other antioxidants to
play a protective role in the body depends on having a functional
antioxidant network – but not vice-versa.
How Does the Network Function?
the original free radical is neutralized by a networking antioxidant.
Unfortunately, the result is that the networking antioxidant is degraded
into its free radical form. That antioxidant is rejuvenated by another
co-antioxidant from the network team. A game of electron donating “hot
potato” ensues, which ultimately results in rejuvenation of the last
networking antioxidant free radical by dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA, the
charged form of R-lipoic acid). And at this point, the “hot potato” game
is halted when R-lipoic acid is cycled through the mitochondrial
antioxidants do play a supporting role to networking antioxidants,
without fully participating in the antioxidant network recycling system.
The best understood of these network-boosters are bioflavonoids and the
mineral selenium. Among bioflavonoids, carnosic acid – which is found
in the herb rosemary – is especially interesting because of its ability
to repeatedly rearrange itself into a “cascade” of new antioxidant
“booster” forms before being exhausted. Selenium supports the network by
maintaining the body’s supply of two key enzymes: glutathione
peroxidase (GSH-Px) and thioredoxin reductase (TrxR). Only very low
doses of selenium are needed to maximize the levels and activity of
these enzymes. Resveratrol, found in grapes and wine, is a
gene-activator in the mitochondria that helps reduce free-radical
production in the first place.

prevention of diabetes complications.” Nutrition. 2001 Oct; 17(10):
redox cycles play central roles in the antioxidant defense network.
Both glutathione and lipoate redox cycles can be driven by
cellular-reducing equivalents to generate their respective reduced forms
(GSH and DHLA). The ability of lipoate to increase cell GSH is mediated
by the reduction of cystine to the GSH precursor cysteine by
dihydrolipoate. LA, lipoate; GSSG, oxidized glutathione; vit, vitamin.

antioxidants have gained phenomenal reputations and hold a lot of
market traction, such as Vitamins C & E and CoQ10. Others like
resveratrol have benefited from “fountain-of-youth” hype. While these
are noteworthy antioxidants, it may be more beneficial to take a
scientifically-proven combination of antioxidants rather than dosing
with large amounts of any single one.
Antioxidant Synergy provides a scientifically-backed combination of
antioxidants, not just a mish-mash of the most popular ones on the
market. Get the most out of your antioxidant regime with Antioxidant
