Antioxidants

An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction involving the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions.

Antioxidant cytoprotection

Your body is exposed to environmental influences on a continuous basis. The body has developed its antioxidant system as one of the protective mechanisms allowing you to cope with these influences. Antioxidants protect healthy cells and tissues. A battle between oxidation and anti-oxidation takes part 24/7 throughout the body. With age, this battle gains in relevance for overall health. Antioxidants are found in many foods including fruits, vegetables and nuts. Important and well-known dietary antioxidants include vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin E, glutathione and lipoic acid. Anti-oxidants are often added to nutritional supplements as well. Dietary supplements containing antioxidants may be a smart solution if your dietary intake is insufficient.

Choosing antioxidants capsules

If antioxidants in your daily diet can use a boost, you can supplement this with nutritional supplements. Ergomax offers various types of antioxidant capsules. Antioxidants that help protect against free radicals include Astaxanthin, Ubiquinol and R-Alpha Lipoic Acid. Astaxanthin is a natural coloring agent and belongs to the carotenoids. In contrast to other anti-oxidants this nutrient may capture a broad spectrum of free radicals. Ubiquinol is a form of coenzyme Q10, and is also a major endogenous antioxidant. R-Alpha lipoic acid is a special antioxidant because it is both water- and fat-soluble. In addition to antioxidant capsules Ergomax also offers antioxidants in cream, liquid and powder form.
