Radicalphage: Anti-Oxidant OPC Anti-Aging Formula
Oxidative stress, or free radical damage to cells, is the basis for many human diseases related to aging, pathology, and simple wear and tear1. The formation of free radicals is a natural consequence of cellular energy generation. When we eat food, digest it and metabolize it, residual components known as free radicals are left behind, which are potentially damaging or toxic to the cells. Hormone injected meat, food and vegetable fields saturated with DDT, and other insecticides, drinking water contaminated by heavy metals, environmental effect on the foods we eat, etc. all play a part in the development of free radicals and precancerous waste. This damage leads to age-related conditions. Malignant progressions creating cancer cells, lipid oxidation leading to deposits of atherosclerotic plaque, and ultimately vascular disease. All of these processes contribute to aging both externally where you see the oxidative signs of skin wrinkling, as well as internally, where you find degenerative arthritis, memory loss, and atherosclerotic vascular disease. As an athlete oxidative stress plays a huge role on one’s overall health and performance. Especially for endurance athletes or anyone who does cardiovascular training or aerobic exercises, the increase of oxygen uptake and metabolism inevitably leads to the production of a high concentration of free radicals which leads to oxidative damage to cells and DNA. To combat oxidative stress, an athlete must supplement their natural free radical defense with antioxidants to neutralize the detrimental effects of these Reactive Oxygen Species.
Radicalphage is the most potent antioxidant formula on the market. It not only includes the powerful OPC containing Grape Seed Extract and Pine Bark Extract, but it also contains Flavones from Citrus Bioflavonoids as well as EGCG from Green Tea
