Support Anti-Ox by BioMatrix
Support Anti-Ox contains a synergistic blend of nutrients formulated to support every cell in the body. When we set out to create this formula, we had questions for prominent manufacturers about their formulas: “Why are the levels of CoQ10 so low? Why is there such a small amount of Alpha Lipoic acid and grape seed extract? Why don’t you use natural carotenoids?” To these questions and others he received a consistent response: “It would be too expensive. We compete with health food stores.” Knowing that patients with pronounced oxidative stress require high levels of certain nutrients, we took the position that it is costly to use cheap antioxidants.
3 Capsules of Support Anti-Ox Contain:
Vitamin A ( as 10000 IU Betatene® natural mixed carotenoids and 2000 IU Vitamin A Palmitate) – 12,000 IU
A free radical scavenger, vitamin A’s roles in health and physiology are numerous. The blend of Betatene® natural mixed carotenoids and Vitamin A Palmitate in Support Anti-Ox is balanced to support easy absorption.. Many patients have a problem converting beta carotene into vitamin A so the Vitamin A precursor Vitamin A Palmitate is used. Betatene® natural mixed carotenoids contain several carotenoids derived from Dunaliella salina algae.
Vitamin C (342 mg as Calcium Ascorbate, 342 mg as Magnesium Ascorbate, 16 mg as Ascorbyl Palmitate) – 700 mg
Vitamin C is a free radical scavenger. The 700 mg in Support Anti-Ox is comprised of three different forms, each serving particular metabolic mechanisms to best support the formula’s other components.
Calcium (as Calcium Ascorbate) – 48 mg.
The calcium portion of the Calcium Ascorbate used primarily to provide quality Vitamin C.
Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol acid succinate) – 400 IU
Another essential free radical scavenger, vitamin E’s antioxidant properties are well known and proven. The vitamin E in Support Anti-Ox comes in the form of d-alpha tocopherol acid succinate to guarantee the best possible absorption given the formula’s other ingredients.
Magnesium (as Magnesium Ascorbate) – 26 mg.
The magnesium portion of the Magnesium Ascorbate used primarily to provide quality Vitamin C.
Selenium (as Selenium Chelate) – 75 mcg
Long known as a substance synergistic with vitamin E, it is provided here in a chelate to ensure optimal absorption.
Lemon Pure Form Bioflavonoid Complex – 100 mg
This bioflavonoid complex assists vitamin C in keeping collagen healthy, is essential for proper absorption of vitamin C, and prevents vitamin C from being destroyed by oxidation. Bioflavonoids are important for supporting vitamin C’s antioxidant properties.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid – 100 mcg
Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) helps produce energy. It plays a crucial role in the mitochondria, the energy-producing structures in cells. The body produces enough ALA for these basic functions. This compound acts as an antioxidant only when there is an excess of it (and it is in a state that is available to the cells). There is little free ALA circulating in the body, unless acquired through supplementation. Foods contain miniscule amounts of it. ALA is unique due to its versatility.
Activin®; Dried ethanol extract of grape seed (Vitis vinifera) – 75 mg
Compounds, called oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), found in grape seed extract.[HH1]
Coenzyme Q10 – 50 mg
CoQ10 functions as a powerful antioxidant. The antioxidant nature of CoQ10 is derived from its energy carrier function. As an energy carrier, the CoQ10 molecule continuously goes through an oxidation-reduction cycle. As it accepts electrons, it becomes reduced. As it gives up electrons, it becomes oxidized. In its reduced form, the CoQ10 molecule holds electrons rather loosely, so this Coenzyme Q molecule will easily give up one or both electrons and thus act as an antioxidant. The amount of CoQ10 in Support Anti-Ox is sufficient to make a powerful impact unlike most antioxidant formulas which minimize the use of this expensive nutrient.
Rutin – 5 mg
Rutin attaches to the iron ion Fe2+, preventing it from binding to hydrogen peroxide and creating a highly reactive free radical. Rutin is a natural bioflavonoid extracted from fruits of the Fava D’Anta tree native to Brazil.
General Suggestion: Two capsules a day. Always take Support Anti-Ox with meals.
