VITAMIN C . Ascorbic acid is a potent reducing and antioxidant agent that functions in ghting bacterial infections in detoxifying reactions, and in the formation of collagen in brous tissue, teeth, bones, connective tissue, skin, and capillaries. . Vitamin C is a cofactor in at least eight enzymatic reactions, including several collagen synthesis reactions. . The biological role of ascorbate is to act as a reducing agent, donating electrons to various enzymatic and a few non-enzymatic reactions. . Vitamin C plays a role in maintaining the intracellular antioxidant network in conjunction with: vitamin e, coQ10, ALA, beta carotene, and glutathione.
QUERCETIN . A bioavonoid antioxidant found in many different foods in the plant kingdom. . Quercetin has been implicated in providing neuro-protection by increasing heme-oxygenase-1 expression which suppresses nitric oxide release induced from an inammation response. . Has the potential to work synergistically with other botanical based antioxidants to help manage oxidative free radical stress. . Has been shown to induce mitochondrial biogenesis in animal models inclusive of exercise.
GRAPE SEED EXTRACT . A botanical extract rich in phenolic compounds (proanthocyanidin/procyanidin) which are powerful antioxidant agents. . Has promise in being able to positively affect the aromatase enzyme. . Has potential anti-inammatory effect by inhibiting excessive activity of macrophages in the context of immune mediated inammation.
BROMELAIN . A protein-digesting enzyme extracted from pineapple. . Taken on an empty stomach has been shown to modulate inammation by stimulating the breakdown of immune-affecting proteins. . Bromelain can modify the activity of specialized immune cells (T-cells) as to help modulate the inammatory response.
