Antioxidant


Very few people get the recommended levels of anti-oxidants through their diets. In fact, studies show that less than 10% of the population even follow the dietary guidelines, leaving more than 90% with a nutritional gap. Let VitaMist Anti-Oxidant spray help you meet your daily antioxidant needs.

We can’t see it, but oxidative damage is constantly occurring in our bodies. Usually, it is caused by highly reactive and toxic “free radicals” which can be formed as by-products of normal bodily processes. The amounts of these toxic oxidants can increase significantly as a result of air pollution, excessive alcohol consumption, cigarette or cigar smoke and even aerobic exercise.

Anti-oxidants, such as vitamins A, C and E, and beta-carotene help to minimize this oxidative damage by mopping up the free radicals. Reports also suggest that antioxidants may speed wound healing and improve vision.

Each dose of VitaMist Anti-Oxidant contains vitamins A, C and E, beta-carotene, niacin, and trace minerals, all combining to act as a bodyguard against the onslaught of free radicals.

For some time, antioxidants have been a hot topic in nutrition, but a lot of us really do not know much about what they are or what they do.

An “anti-oxidant”, by definition, is something that attacks or neutralizes an “oxidant”.

Oxidants are more commonly described as free radicals, which are defined as highly damaging substances that are so reactive that they will “attack” other molecules in the body, causing damage that can lead to serious changes in body chemistry and may ultimately result in disease. Another consequence of free radicals, is that they can cause damage to our genetic material, our DNA; which in turn can have far reaching effects like impaired immune function, the development of certain forms of cancer, or leukemia, as well as a host of other diseases.

Another effect of free radicals are that they can cause damage to the cells by affecting their fluid balance, and this is a contributing factor to the aging process.

So where do these oxidants, or free radicals, come from? They can come from almost anywhere. For example, they can come from external factors such as pollution, the effects of UV light, cigarette smoke, and other harmful chemicals in the air. Free radicals can also be formed through normal bodily processes, the metabolic processes that make us function. Under normal circumstances, the free radicals that our bodies make themselves are mopped up, or neutralized, by the body’s own anti-oxidant system; however, under certain circumstances, like when we exercise or are under stress, we produce more free radicals than our bodies can deal with. This can lead to oxidative damage.

Another important factor to consider is our diet. A high fat diet generates more free radicals than a low fat diet. In addition, the cooking process can lead to the production of free radicals, especially when cooking fats at high temperatures.

In order to combat the effects of free radicals, we need ANTI-OXIDANTS.
Anti-oxidants are substances that mop up, or eradicate, free radicals.

Anti-oxidants can prevent, or at least slow, the oxidation of sensitive molecules found in the body. An anti-oxidant will typically stop this oxidation occurring by mopping-up free radicals and preventing them from causing any damage. Some anti-oxidants are considered to be helpful both as anti-cancer and anti-aging nutrients.
Anti-oxidant molecules “sacrifice” themselves by neutralizing the free radical and preventing it from causing damage to our bodies. This is a complex process that is constantly occurring in our bodies.

Perhaps the best known anti-oxidant nutrients are three vitamins, vitamins A, C, and E. In addition, fruits and vegetables contain literally hundreds of different chemical compounds, many of which act as anti-oxidants; for example, carotenoids like beta-carotene (the pigment that gives carrots their characteristic color). There are many other “phytochemicals” (chemicals from plants) that act as anti-oxidants. Examples include the chemical components found in grape seed and pine bark.

VitaMist Anti-Oxidant provides your body with a healthy balance of vitamins and phytochemicals to help combat the damaging effects of free radicals. VitaMist combines the benefits of oral absorption with scientifically formulated products to ensure that you get the nutrition your body needs. Fast and effective — that’s the VitaMist promise.

Product Info

  • Anti-oxidants are nutrients that can prevent, or at least slow, the oxidation of sensitive molecules found in the body.

Some anti-oxidants are considered to be helpful both as anti-cancer and anti-aging nutrients. Some key anti-oxidants are vitamin A, carotenoids (including beta-carotene), vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, as well as many “phytochemicals” (constituents of plants and vegetables – like components of grape seed and pine bark).
