Scientific information about antioxidants

In order to understand the complexity of antioxidants and the synergy of a good combination we would have to discuss the need for antioxidants. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals in the body. To help understand free radicals we need to know what cause it and what damage does it cause the body. Free radicals are caused by pollution, bad eating habits, nicotine, alcohol, petrol fumes from high volume traffic, colorants, flavorants, junk food and most of the medical medication could cause free radical damage. Free radical damage disrupts the cellular chemistry in such a bad way it could cause excessive cell death. Free radical damage to the cell membrane inhibits nutrients to enter the cell and waste to exit the cells witch cause the cell to starve and be poisoned at the same time. Free radicals are the main cause in the process of aging.

When choosing an antioxidant we must realize that a single antioxidant might not be good enough. Certain free radicals need certain antioxidants to neutralize it. We realize that in the last few years a lot of progress has been made in this field. There are a lot of antioxidant claims (rightly so) but each of them might have a specific action and therefore we need to have a broad spectrum or multi component antioxidant because antioxidants work better in synergy.

In modern day living with high stress levels, modern urban living, and high stress levels, over or under exercising, works tension and long work hours will all cause free radical damage. With this picture scientific research showed that people who do not take antioxidants may not achieve optimum health, cannot perform to optimum capacity and are more prone to degenerative diseases.

The antioxidant formula from PMR has been formulated to support the body’s fight against almost all these free radicals. Since there are no single antioxidant that can assist the body to fight all these free radicals PMR has formulated a Antioxidant to with 18 different components. This high level multi component Antioxidant may assist the body in the fight with all the free radicals mentioned below and it is in a convenient one capsule a day for your convenience and to save you from buying multi products.
