Anti-oxidants and Supplementation

Do you know why you might be aging faster than you should be or eat well, but not feel so great? Well, let’s explain why anti-oxidants play a big role in all of these areas.

Most people know that anti-oxidants are important to your health but they have no idea what an anti-oxidant is or why it is important. An anti-oxidant is a molecule capable of preventing the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that transfers electrons or hydrogen from a substance to an oxidizing agent.

When our bodies burn oxygen, they produce oxygen by-products called “free radicals.” These free radicals can damage cells and tissues in our bodies. The damage of cells and tissues in our bodies can lead to the premature aging of cells. If our cells age prematurely then it lowers our immunity against diseases and illnesses. Thus, consuming foods that are high in anti-oxidants will help to get rid of free radicals, thereby preventing premature aging of our cells, increasing our immunity to diseases and illnesses, and improving our health overall.

Here is an illustration showing you how anti-oxidants neutralize free-radicals:

To understand how anti-oxidants work imagine an apple. If you take an apple and cut it into slices, it will turns brown after awhile. But if you squeeze lemon juice on it, it will stay white. This is because Vitamin C and Vitamin E in lemon juice is an anti-oxidant. The lemon juice functions as a protectant against  damaging free radicals. Our bodies work in a similar fashion. This is why we need to consume plenty of fruits and vegetables or take a nutritional supplement that is high in vitamins and anti-oxidants.

LifePak Nano produced by Nu Skin (Pharmanex), is a scientifically balanced anti-aging supplement for adults. It has more than 60 anti-oxidants and therefore offers broad range cell and body protection. When someone buys supplements, they usually do not do any research on the product or do not get tested to see if the product is actually working out for them or being completely absorbed by their cells. With the LifePak Nano supplements, you are able to be medically tested by the biophontic scanner (featured on Dr. Oz: when needed.

Fat-soluble nutrients, like carotenoids and CoQ10, tend to cling together in the digestive tract, making them difficult to absorb. LifePak Nano technology allows individual molecules to be separated using nano encapsulation. This process prevents molecules from clinging together so they are individually dispersed and more available for easy absorption. Coenzyme Q-10, is a carotenoid. Carotenoids are high absorbable red, yellow, or orange highly unsaturated pigments that are found in foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, and leafy green vegetables. Many of these substances, such as carotene, are used in the formation of vitamin A in the body.  The nano-technology was found in laboratory tests to increase the bioavailability of Coenzyme Q-10 by 5-10 times. Basically, this means that Co-enzyme Q-10 is absorbed into your body 5 to 10 times faster with the technology found in LifePak Nano.

Essentially, to maximize the chance of your living a long healthy life, you need to consume your daily recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables.  This will stop free radicals from damaging your body, and help to prevent premature aging, and certain diseases such as heart disease, type II diabetes, and certain types of cancer. If you cannot consume the daily recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables then it is essential that you take nutritional supplements like LifePak Nano or essential vitamins like Vitamin C.
