RxQ Antioxidant Complex was developed to help combat oxidative stress caused by environmental pollution such as ozone and air pollution. It can help the body combat free radicals that accumulate in the body and cause damage to cells. Within the body, free radicals give an unneeded electron charge to a molecule, enzyme, or receptor. It doesn't change the chemical, but can affect its position.*

Daily use of RxQ Antioxidant Complex can help preserve the body, much like brushing and flossing helps maintain our teeth. Neither brushing nor flossing make it better. However, flossing and brushing helps preserve our teeth. It can be best thought of as a metabolic hygiene to be used in "dirty" environments that create oxidative stress overloads that can chip away at our health prematurely.*
