Most people are aware of how UV rays can lead to the outward signs of aging on the skin. Unfortunately, environmental pollution is equally detrimental. Those pollutants damage cells and DNA, accelerating the aging process. The introduction of antioxidant enzymes and amino acids such as the ones contained within the RxQ Antioxidant Complex may help mitigate damage by supplying the body with the building blocks of natural antioxidants.*
The body manufactures a natural antioxidant called glutathione to neutralize free radicals. Oxidative stress happens when free radicals that damage cells are present in such numbers that they overwhelm the body’s ability to counteract them effectively. The outward signs of oxidative stress are fine lines, wrinkles, and dull appearing skin. The inward effects may include damage to the immune system and a greater risk of developing various diseases.*
Environmental pollution that leads to oxidative stress is present in a wide array of manmade chemicals used in manufacturing processes and in common household and personal care products. Free radicals are also present naturally in the environment. Radon, a gas that occurs naturally in the soil, is also a source of environmental pollution that contributes to oxidative stress. Even regularly utilized diagnostic procedures result in oxidative stress within the body.*
Environmental pollutants have been associated with increased oxidative stress resulting in inflammation and autoimmune dysfunction. Conditions ranging from the development of breathing problems, cardiovascular events and cancer, along with an impact on prenatal development. Free radicals accelerate the aging process throughout the body.*
Glutathione is the body’s natural antioxidant, an essential compound manufactured by the body to neutralize free radicals that also helps in cellular repair. RxQ Antioxidant Compound is comprised of a unique blend of amino acids that provide the raw materials needed for the production of glutathione.*
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) is an essential amino acid that aids in the syntheses of glutathione. It is effective in supporting the antioxidant structure of the body and can be enhanced with supplementation. NAC is an ingredient in RxQ Antioxidant Complex that may help in alleviating oxidative stress that can present itself as arthritis, greater recovery times for injuries and reduced immune system function.*
Obtaining the needed ingredients for efficient glutathione production is particularly important as the body’s natural antioxidant production begins to decline as we get older, accelerating the aging process. RxQ Antioxidant Complex offers a unique formulation of building blocks required for glutathione production that is needed to fight free radicals from environmental pollution, repair cells and detoxify the body.*
Genistein (Japanese Sophora)
This is a phytoestrogen isoflavone and a known Tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Genistein has traditionally been viewed as a perimenopausal hormone treatment. It has been thought of as a "natural estrogen" and used for menopausal symptoms for decades. Furthermore, it helps protect from radiation and mitigates biologic effects from ionizing radiation.*
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC)
Like any large enterprise, glutathione requires a substantial logistical support in addition to a bountiful supply of the essential three amino acid components. This also includes Selenium which helps reload glutathione so as to be repeatedly recycled and have a longer duration of repetition of activity.*
NAC becomes Cysteine upon absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. This helps produce a huge and truly blockbuster antioxidant called Glutathione. Glutathione is one of the mainstays of the body’s oxidative stress defense network.*
Icariin (Horny Goat Weed)
It is a active flavonoid found in epicedium plant, also known as horny goat weed. It is an active component found to enhance blood flow.*
Resveratrol (Japanese knotweed)
It has been found to be an antioxidant by protecting the mitochondria (power house of the cell).*
Vision loss frequently associated with aging is the most precious gift to lose. A life without sight can be devastating and limiting. Lutein was added to help preserve vision through our lives. It is an essential for the Macula, a small area of the retina responsible for central vision.
The use of Lutein can help keep the eyes safe from oxidative stress.*
Some of the other constituents of RxQ Antioxidant Complex are well-known and part of the network of interlacing antioxidant pathways.*
