Free radicals steal electrons from the proteins in your body, which badly damages your DNA and other cell structures. They can create a "snowballing effect" – as molecules steal from one another, each one becomes a new free radical, leaving a trail of biological carnage. Free radicals tend to collect in cell membranes (lipid peroxidation), which makes the cell lipids prone to oxidative damage. When this happens, the cell membrane becomes brittle and leaky, causing the cell to eventually fall apart and die. Free radicals can severely affect your DNA by disrupting the duplication of DNA, interfering with DNA maintenance and breaking open or altering its structure by reacting with the DNA bases. Free radicals are linked to over many diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, cataracts, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, diabetes, anemia, neurodegenerative diseases and aids in digestion. If your body does not get adequate protection, free radicals can become rampant, causing your cells to perform poorly. This can lead to tissue degradation and put you at risk of diseases.
This is where this antioxidant combination comes in. This can break the free radical chain reaction by sacrificing their own electrons to feed free radicals, but without turning into free radicals themselves.
This combination also helps slow down the aging process, which can have immense effects on your skin health.
Lycopene is a fat-soluble red pigment produced by plants and some microorganisms. It represents the major carotenoid in tomatoes and is found to a lesser extent in guava, pink grapefruit, watermelon and papaya. In contrast to other carotenoids, this lipophilic acyclic isomer of β-carotene lacks vitamin A activity and, although it represents the most predominant carotenoid in human plasma that is enriched in (very-) low-density lipoprotein fractions.
Lycopene is especially interesting because of its considerable antioxidant activity that highly exceeds that of β -carotene and α –tocopherol. It possesses an impressive spectrum of health beneficial properties, ranging from hypocholesterolemic and cardio-protective effects to anti-inflammatory and anti-mutagenic activity and a remarkable anti-cancer potential. Beside this, a high lycopene serum level might be linked to a lower risk for age-related macular degeneration.
Vitamin E is a natural skin-conditioning agent and antioxidant. It is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be isolated from vegetable oils. It is also found in dairy products, meat, eggs, cereals, nuts, and leafy green and yellow vegetables. Its substantiated benefits include enhancing the efficacy of active sunscreen ingredients, reducing the formation of free radicals from exposure to UV rays, promoting the healing process, strengthening the skin's barrier function, protecting the skin barrier's lipid balance, and reducing transepidermal water loss. Attributed with antioxidant, anti-aging, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and enhanced SPF properties, tocopherol acetate is valued both as a dietary supplement and skincare active.
Like all the B vitamins, vitamin B2 plays a key role in energy production. Its role here is complicated—it is important both for the energy-producing electron transport chain and the metabolism of fat molecules into chemically useful energy. Additionally, vitamin B2 plays a role in the chemistry of other nutrients involved in energy production, including folate and vitamin B6. It is one of many nutrients required to recycle glutathione, which is one of the most important antioxidants in the human body.
Thiamine is an essential nutrient, and all the tissues of the body, including the brain, need thiamine to function properly. B1 is a key player in the production of energy from dietary carbohydrates and fats. It plays the most critical role of all, acting as the gate keeper between the less efficient step of early carbohydrate breakdown and the very energy-rich Krebs' cycle and electron transport chain. In addition to its role in energy production, vitamin B1 plays a key role in the structure and integrity of the cells of the brain. If the deficiency is very advanced, or occurs at a critical period of brain development, the damage can be quite severe.
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. The body cannot store them. Leftover amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine. That means you need a continuous supply of such vitamins in your diet. Vitamin B6 helps the body to make antibodies that are needed to fight many diseases, maintains normal nerve function, and makes hemoglobin that carries oxygen in the red blood cells to the tissues. A vitamin B6 deficiency can cause a form of anemia. It breaks down proteins. The more protein you eat, the more vitamin B6 you need. Vitamin B6 also keeps blood sugar (glucose) in normal ranges.
Folic acid is a type of B vitamin. It is the man-made (synthetic) form of folate that is found in supplements and added to fortified foods. It is water-soluble. That means your body does not store folic acid and you need a continuous supply of the vitamin in the foods you eat. Folate aids in the production of red blood cells, synthesis of DNA. It works with Vitamin B12 and vitamin C to help the body digest and utilize proteins.
Zinc is an important trace mineral that people need to stay healthy. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It is needed for the body's defensive (immune) system to properly work. It plays a role in cell division, cell growth, wound healing, and the breakdown of carbohydrates. It is also needed for the senses of smell and taste. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood the body needs zinc to grow and develop properly.
Copper is an essential trace mineral present in all body tissues. Copper works with iron to help the body form red blood cells. It also helps keep the blood vessels, nerves, immune system, and bones healthy.
Manganese is used for prevention and treatment of manganese deficiency, a condition in which the body doesn't have enough manganese. It is also used for weak bones (osteoporosis), a type of "tired blood" (anemia), and symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Potassium is a mineral that the body needs to work normally. It helps nerves and muscles communicate. It also helps move nutrients into cells and waste products out of cells. A diet rich in potassium helps to offset some of sodium's harmful effects on blood pressure.
Sodium Selinite Pentahydrate:
Selenium is an essential trace mineral. This means your body must get this mineral in the food you eat. Small amounts of selenium are good for your health. Selenium helps the body with:
● Making special proteins, called antioxidant enzymes, which play a role in preventing cell damage
● Helping your body protect you after a vaccination
