ANTIOXIDANTS AND OTHERS

Alpha lipoic acid

Antioxidant.

Alpha lipoic acid has many functions, but the main one is to eliminate free radicals and is the only known acid that easily reaches the brain. It also has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamins C & E, and glutathione. Therefore, when these antioxidants are depleted, it helps to regenerate them. It also recycles coenzyme Q10 and NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide).

It is used for the treatment of diabetes because it improves sensitivity to inulin, as a metal chelator, for autoimmune diseases, decreases inflammation and serves in anti-aging therapies.

Catalase

Powerful Antioxidant Enzyme.

Catalase is an oxidoreductase enzyme that catalyzes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide and converts it into water and oxygen. It is present in all living beings and is essential in cells, together with the antioxidants Superoxide Dismutase and Glutathione Peroxidase, because it acts as a protector against harmful agents or toxins such as formaldehydes, nitrites, formic acid, methane and ethanol. Catalase is used in anti-aging therapies to prevent DNA damage and contains degenerative processes that lead to chronic diseases.

Ubiquinone - Coenzyme Q10

Electron transporter and Antioxidant.

It is present in the mitochondria of most eukaryotic cells as a component of the electron transport chain involved in aerobic cellular respiration generating energy in the form of ATP. The ability of this molecule to exist in a completely oxidized form and a completely reduced form allows it to perform its functions in the electron transport chain, and as an antioxidant, respectively. The heart, liver, kidneys and even sperm have the highest concentrations of CoQ10. With age decreases the production of Q10, some genetic and chronic diseases such as cancer, heart and liver reduce the synthesis and increase the demand for this coenzyme in the body.

Green Tea

Plant with polyphenols.

Medicinal plant with high content of antioxidants polyphenols, vitamin C and E, caffeine and theanine that confers stimulation, protective effect against free radicals. It contains epigallocatechin gallate, a polyphenol, associated with an increase in cognitive capacity.

Malic Acid

Cellular energy.

It is found in some fruits and vegetables such as grapes and apples. It is a main part of the Krebs Cycle for obtaining ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the energy used by cells. Malic acid deficiency is associated with fibromyalgia and protects the skin from depigmentation by the ultraviolet rays of the sun.

Xanthan Gum

Emulsifier and antioxidant.

It is a polysaccharide composed of D-glucopyranosyl chains obtained by the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris. The function is to act as an antioxidant and hydrophilic colloid to thicken, suspend, and stabilize emulsions and other water-based systems, useful in formulations in the food area, to maintain long storage periods.
