If you ever wondered why an apple turns brown after you cut it or why iron rusts when exposed to the elements, you are questioning the damage and destructive effects of oxidants (free radicals) normally found in the environment. Oxidation causes a similar harm to the cells of your body. When you breathe, digest food, exercise or just sleep, your body produces potentially harmful agents called, free radicals. The free-radical chain reactions in your body take place countless times each day. To make matters worse, emotional stress, ultraviolet light and toxic substances in air pollution and cigarette smoke also generate free radicals that can put your health at risk. Everyday our bodies are called to meet the physical demands of the environment. Changes in the quality of our air, water and food, along with daily stressful conditions can affect our health and well-being. The oxidative damage to our cells due to the toxicity of free radicals caused by our environment is a reality in which we must live. Fortunately, a healthy body is able to produce substances that reduce a great deal of this damage. Plus, there are certain nutrients contained in the foods we eat that play a protective role, which the body does not produce on its own. Solgar's Advanced Antioxidant Formula provides nutrients which support the body's natural antioxidant mechanisms and food factors that have been shown to have a protective effect against cellular oxidation. Advanced Antioxidant Formula is packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and nutritional food factors. Since these ingredients are encapsulated in Vegetarian Capsules, the first vegetarian Capsules made entirely from pure vegetable sources, Solgar's Advanced Antioxidant Formula is suitable for vegetarians. Solgar has used the most up-to-date research to provide a truly advanced antioxidant formula that meets your needs in a demanding environment.
