Antioxidants – the health rage of the 21st century!
Blueberries have become one of the most sought after fruits, dark chocolate is now considered “healthy,” green tea is available in countless varieties to suit any palate, and skin care products boast the anti-aging powers of their grape seed/vitamin C enhanced moisturizer creams. It is clear that antioxidants have proven their value to this generation of health-conscious consumers.
One of the most widely used nutrients/antioxidants available is CoQ10. Also known as Coenzyme Q10, ubiquinone, or vitamin Q, this vitamin-like, fat-soluble nutrient is naturally produced within our bodies and is primarily responsible for producing energy within our cells and acting as a protective antioxidant. Research has shown that our ability to produce CoQ10 diminishes with age; therefore, many practitioners recommend supplementing CoQ10 in order to keep the cells young and healthy. It is important to note that all CoQ10 supplements are not created equal. Energetix’ CoQ10 formula is made with ubidecarenone, which is made from a natural and chemical-free fermentation process. It also contains a small amount of vitamin E which enhances the absorption and delivery of this fat-soluble nutrient.
Phyto Rad Antioxidant is one of the most diverse formulas in the Energetix line. It contains three spagyrically processed botanicals with broad antioxidant profiles plus three nutritional compounds to help concentrate the formulas action. These ingredients have been chosen for their specific action on primary organs and systems within the body. For example, Milk Thistle is a broad acting antioxidant, but traditional use and scientific understanding have shown it to have a specific action on the liver. Each individual ingredient has been selected for its unique affinity to different organs and systems, and when combined into one formula it offers a full-body antioxidant formulation.
Greening Power was designed to help our bodies get the nutrition they crave! Forty-five fruits, veggies, herbs and digestive enzymes have been squeezed into every bottle – it’s the healthiest, highest quality “convenience food” you’ll ever experience. The ingredients in Greening Power are believed to help support healthy pH balance, enhance overall nutritional intake, help keep your liver clean and healthy, and fight free radicals (this product is naturally rich in antioxidants). In addition, the plant-based enzymes have been found to help maintain proper digestion and elimination.
