Supplement FactsServing Size:
- Gamma tocopherol - Increasing evidence indicates that it may be dangerous to use to alpha-tocopherol form of vitamin E without also taking gamma-tocopherol. According to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, alpha-tocopherol displaces critically important gamma-tocopherol in the cells. While alpha-tocopherol inhibits lipid peroxidation, gamma tocopherol is needed to quench dangerous free radicals such as peroxynitrite.1
- Sesame lignans - Studies show that when sesame lignans are added to the diet of rats, a measurement of free radical activity is reduced by 82 percent.2-4 Sesame lignans augment the antioxidant effects of both alpha and gamma-tocopherol. A human study showed that gamma-tocopherol plus sesame lignans was 25 percent more effective at suppressing measurements of free radical damage than gamma-tocopherol and tocotrienols.5-7
- Vitamin K2 - A new biologically active form of vitamin K2 known as menaquinone-7 has been added to provide improved vitamin K function. Menaquinone-7 is not metabolized quickly by the liver, so only small amounts are needed to make osteocalcin, the protein that directs calcium into the bones instead of being left in the blood to calcify arteries.
- Lycopene - People who ingest cooked tomato, rich in the carotenoid lycopene, enjoy healthier prostate function. Lycopene also helps guard against LDL oxidation.
- Lutein - Consumption of green vegetables such as collard greens and spinach provides the carotenoid lutein, which helps maintain healthy cell division and protects the endothelial lining of the arteries.
- Ginkgo - The most popular flavonoid supplement is Ginkgo biloba. Hundreds of studies substantiate its multifaceted effects in the promotion of healthy circulatory and neurologic functions.
- Chlorophyllin - The pigment chlorophyllin is vividly seen in green vegetables. Scientific studies indicate that chlorophyllin may be the most potent nutrient to protect against environmental DNA damage.
- Selenium - The FDA states that some scientific evidence suggests consumption of selenium may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined this evidence is limited and not conclusive. The ability of selenium to boost glutathione is well established, but most people don't know that there are several different forms of selenium that provide diverse biological benefits.
