modern health science continues to uncover ways to
decrease the effects of aging upon our bodies. This article highlights
studies on free radicals and how the body's own enzymes can be utilized.
Do you have a cabinet full of antioxidant vitamins and supplements?
What would you do if you found out that the hundreds, or thousands, of
dollars you have been spending on antioxidant vitamins, juices, berry
drinks, powders and supplements were going to
How about you?
The only vitamin I recollect taking as a child was a multi-vitamin
whenever my mother slowed me down long enough in the kitchen to make
sure it got into my mouth.
Fast forward to today...
Today stores and many of our cabinets have almost endless supplies of
antioxidant vitamins. if we stopped to add up the cost, it would be no
When did it all begin?
It all started in 1969 with the discovery of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)by
Dr. Joe McCord.
It was discovered that our bodies naturally create SOD which neutralizes
free radicals. You see, we necessitate antioxidant enzymes in our bodies
because they annihilate free radicals which are associated with aging.
Regrettably, the normal things we do every day like breathing, eating,
and exercising produce free radicals which harm our cells. It was
thought that if it were possible to wipe out these free radicals, then
we could slow down the process of aging.
This discovery spurred the
antioxidant business as millions of people listened to the health
science community and wanted to protect their bodies. Entire companies
were born and billions of dollars per year have been spent ever since.
Think of the significant nutrition chain stores now that did not exist
in the 1960's.
But what would you do if you learned that "direct antioxidants" (like A,
C, and E) and the industry launched as a result of this early research
has not really been helping you? Would you be angry? Would you feel
Although initial studies suggested that antioxidant supplements might
promote health, later large
clinical trials did not detect any benefit
and suggested instead that excess supplementation may be harmful!
Another problem with direct antioxidants is that our bodies can only
utilize 5000-7000 of them per day. Do you know how many free radicals we
have in our bodies at one time? 300 sextillion. That is a 3 with 23
zeros behind it.
Here's another key fact: each time a direct antioxidant destroys a free
radical, it is destroyed as well. So, if direct antioxidants can only
neutralize 5000-7000 free radicals per day, they are destroyed in the
campaign, and we have 300 sextillion of them in our bodies at any given
time, even if we ate loads of fruits and vegetables and took large
quantities of antioxidants, our bodies could only utilize a portion and
the rest would go down the drain. It is like trying to fight a forest
fire with a squirt gun.
But don't despair. I have not taken you this far to leave you without
hope. Thankfully there is a solution.
What scientists have found is that the most effectual way to destroy
free radicals is to utilize the body's own natural enzymes.
Did you catch that? ....the body's own natural enzymes.
We are talking about using the power of our own body.
Many in the field of health today are interested in helping the body
mend itself. This is a reaction to the "cut and prescribe" model that
has been so widespread in the health industry.
Many doctors themselves are questioning the judgment of ordinary
practice and asking how they can work with the body instead of against
When scientists discovered that our bodies' own antioxidant enzymes
can wipe out 1,000,000 free radicals per second, every second, others started doing
independent work with one herbal supplement
Protandim that spurs the body's
production of these natural enzymes because it might help to combat
various diseases. Those studies are now underway. What health scientists
have found is that this special herbal supplement blend triggers the
mitochondria in our cells to manufacture greater quantities of SOD and
CAT (catalase). In fact, 30% more SOD, 54% more CAT, and 300% more
glutathione. Enough to neutralize one million free radicals per second,
every second of every day.
Why would somebody try to do it another way?
Now we know it is feasible to spur the body's own enzyme production to
aid it in its fight against free radicals.
Up until right now, we didn't have another way. We were taking direct
antioxidants with the understanding that we were doing the best we could
with the wisdom we all had.
But now we know better. And this extraordinary, patented herbal
supplement blend is yielding such spectacular results that it is
changing all we know about how to combat free radicals.
