SolgarADVANCED ANTIOXIDANT FORMULA. Antioxidant food supplement that contains different vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients from green tea and maritime pine bark, among others, to help protect cells against oxidative stress. Free radicals are formed in the body when you breathe, digest food, exercise, and even during sleep. They are produced naturally by emotional stress, ultraviolet light, radiation, and environmental pollution. Free radicals damage the body by deteriorating cells, reducing our defenses and promoting oxidative stress.
To counteract the effect of these, the activity of antioxidants is necessary. Some of the most powerful antioxidants that we know of are: vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and selenium.
Solgar's advanced antioxidant formula combines vitamins C and E, with minerals like zinc, selenium, and copper, all of which are oxidative stress protectors. It also adds to the formula some amino acids such as taurine, cysteine and glutathione and a powdered vegetable base of spirulina, ginkgo biloba, thistle and gotu kola. To complete its composition, phytochemicals from green tea, red wine and Pycnogenol® (a registered trademark of French maritime pine bark, Pinus pinaster) are incorporated into this combination.
