An Antioxidant Defense and Recycling System
• Keeps antioxidants in an active state
• Protects against cellular damage
• Synergistic actions

The Free Radical Threat
During the normal metabolism of cells, oxidation reactions produce harmful byproducts known as free radicals. These highly reactive molecules react with DNA, protein and other cellular components, causing a great deal of damage. In the process, they produce more free radicals in a chain reaction. Antioxidants are compounds that are able to quench free radicals and stop them from causing cellular damage. However, most antioxidants become mild free radicals themselves in this process, which, in the long term can cause harm if not dealt with.

An Antioxidant Tag Team
The body contains 5 antioxidants that are able to recycle other antioxidants, keeping them in their active states. These include R+ lipoic acid, the vitamin E complex, vitamin C, glutathione and coenzyme Q10. These 5 work together to enhance and extend each other’s antioxidant capacities. Other compounds act as antioxidant boosters, including bioflavonoids such as carnosic acid from rosemary, and selenium.

Cellular Protection
AOR’s Antioxidant Synergy
contains the five antioxidant powerhouses to keep cells working optimally, along with the boosters to help their actions have the most impact.

The Antioxidant Network

The Antioxidant Problem

When free radicals tear through your body, the molecules they damage also become free radicals. The same is true of antioxidants. After quenching a free radical, an antioxidant molecule doesn't just disappear. Instead, used-up antioxidants are themselves transformed into mild free radicals. But because the "radicalized" antioxidant is less immediately toxic to the body than the free radicals they neutralize, the overall effect of antioxidants is favorable.

However, "radicalized" antioxidants can do long-term harm if they aren't properly dealt with. 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.

The Antioxidant Solution
The potential for slow-acting pathology from "radicalized" antioxidants 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. 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).

How it Works
The "bird's eye view" of the antioxidant network recycling process looks like this. First, the original free radical attacker is neutralized by a networking antioxidant. Unfortunately, the result is that the networking antioxidant is degraded into its free radical form. To save the body from disaster, the networking antioxidant is rejuvenated by a co-antioxidant from the antioxidant network team. A game of electron donating "hot potato" ensues, which ultimately results in rejuvenation of the networking antioxidant free radical by the active form of R (+) lipoic acid.

For the Antioxidant network to work optimally, it is critical to ensure that your lipoic acid supplement is in the form of R (+)-lipoic acid. Supplements labeled "alpha-lipoic acid" or simply "lipoic acid" contain up to 50% S (-)-lipoic acid, an unnatural molecule that hinders the ability of mitochondria to "charge up" R (+)-lipoic acid into its active form. As a result, the S (-)-lipoic acid in conventional "lipoic acid" supplements actually interferes with the recycling activity of the Networking antioxidants.

A Synergistic Effect
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.

However, a few 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.

You'll want to ensure that you're taking the complete team of networking antioxidants, plus carnosic acid, resveratrol, and Se-methylselenocysteine, as proven "boosters" of the Network itself.
