Filter | Antioxidant Formula: The Whole Saga
Over 30+ years, one of our most asked questions is: "why should I take antioxidants?" or "do antioxidants really work?" Here's a pretty good explanation of free radical science and why antioxidants should be an important part of your diet and health regimen:
Your body converts food and air to energy in your cells and in the process, your cells kick out some pretty nasty exhaust commonly known as free radicals. These are oxygen atoms and molecules containing oxygen that are missing an electron – causing them to create issues in your cells. Free radicals also known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) are believed to be the cause of many human diseases and disorders.
Free radicals are also caused by smoke, pollution, poor diet, ultraviolet light, etc. and making matters worse, free radicals create additional free radicals in a chain reaction. The numbers are somewhat overwhelming with over 7 trillion free radicals produced every second which is why we must do our best to support our body in controlling them.
Antioxidants work by absorbing free radicals, rendering them harmless. Specifically, antioxidants have a “space” within their makeup that attracts and accepts sticky oxygen atoms and molecules with solo electrons. Think of antioxidants as a “filter system” that catches free radicals and converts them so they’re no longer “radical”…
Your body makes many types of antioxidants on its own to deal with the variety of free radicals, but can’t always make enough – especially as you age – so you need to add them by eating antioxidant rich foods and taking the right amount and type of antioxidant supplements that absorb the various types of free radicals.
Generally, with a higher quantity and right type of antioxidants, the less likely your cells and body will be harmed by free radicals. The right steps? Eating antioxidant rich foods like broccoli, cauliflower, blueberries, Acai berries, etc. while avoiding smoke, pollution and excess alcohol. And our science and research strongly support the benefits of taking antioxidant supplements every day.
Our proprietary Antioxidant Formula is premium grade, containing 30 very specific antioxidants, scientifically formulated to help your body manage free radicals. Such as… Curcumin – a strong antioxidant; Resveratrol – another strong antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress and supports against inflammation; and Alpha lipoic acid – a powerful antioxidant used in Europe with success.
That’s just three. Our formula also includes L-glutathione – an integral part of our body’s enzymatic defense mechanisms from free radicals. Normally, glutathione is not highly absorbed by the body, but we include the ethyl ester form (L glutathione ethyl ester) form which is much more absorbable (and also a key ingredient in our patented Powerhouse Cellular Health & Energy Formula)
Our Filter Antioxidant Formula contains another 26 powerful ingredients such as Grape Seed Extract – an outstanding antioxidant that is 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times more powerful than vitamin E; N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) – a potent antioxidant that protects cells from the toxic effects of oxygen; Quercetin – a strong antioxidant that supports cardiovascular and respiratory health and while supporting against stress. Another powerful antioxidant that is great for supporting the eyes is Lutein; Co-Q10 – helps the mitochondria, the powehouse of the cell-but you must have the right kind and that is exactly what we use; Dl methionine – a sulfur containing amino acid that’s important for its anti-inflammatory and cartilage tissue health support ; Lycopene – another powerful antioxidant; Plus…Pomegranate Extract; Bilberry; Acai Berry; Citrus Bioflavonoids; Gotu Kola, Ginkgo, Ginseng and Green Tea.
How does PEAK 365 Filter Antioxidant Formula compare to other “typical” antioxidant formulas and why is it top-rated? We encourage you to read the labels. You will see very few of our ingredients in other products. Why? Because they are too expensive for the mass market and if they happen to be included, you’ll find what we call “Nominal Dosing” – An example: Competing brands often include some ingredients in mcg dosing – these are micrograms – where, for example, Lycopene at 300 micrograms = 0.30 mg (less than 1/3 of one mg) while our formula supplies 25,000 micrograms or 25 mg.
Another critical difference is all our minerals are all chelated – tagged to an amino acid for better absorption – another costly process that makes Antioxidant Formula the finest available to help your body manage damaging free radicals. Yes, it may cost a bit more. That’s because our formula includes the purest and finest combination and quantity of the right premium grade ingredients. We manufacture solely in the USA in FDA, GMP certified facilities.
