What is an antioxidant?
Antioxidants are substances that are capable of counteracting the damaging effects of oxidation (free radicals) and they are found naturally in many foods including fruits, vegetables and nuts and can also be found in supplement form. Antioxidants help fight oxidation which is accelerated by stress, smoking, alcohol, strenuous exercise, x-rays and processed and instant foods.
Our antioxidant systems are not perfect , so as we age and are subjected to all these free radicals our cells and DNA are compromised by oxidation and free radicals can damage and destroy our cells. Scientists believe that DNA damage is a major component of the aging process. Oxidation in the human body can be likened to metal when it rusts.
Free radicals are molecules produced as a result of an unhealthy diet or exposure to pollution, smoke, chemicals, stress and free radical damage may play a role in heart disease, cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, cataracts and other diseases.
So antioxidants prevent oxidation (rusting) in our bodies by building a healthy immune system. Antioxidants are found in our healthy fruit and vegetables and neutralize the free radicals (junk food).
Get in touch
I always encourage my clients to liaise with me either personally or telephonically to discuss the dosages, which are so personal and vary, dependent on whether for general use or for a chronic condition. The benefits of this natural medicine increase as the dosage increases. Also important to explain the merits and benefits of this amazing nutrient and how Astaxanthin works in the body.
What people say about
I've been using Pru's Natural Astaxanthin capsules and her Astaxanthin Cream for almost two years now.
What astonished me the most was the effect on my skin! It is looking younger now that it did in my 40's - my age spots have started to fade (especially on my hands), my skin looks and feels more hydrated, but for me the biggest plus has been the UV protection that it provides internally, especially with our harsh sun here in South Africa.
I can confidently say that instead of my skin burning it turns a lovely golden brown and glows.
The cream melts into the skin without a sticky residue. This is one product that I won't be without!
I was so convinced with JointAstin that I decided to dump my really expensive rosacea combatting lotions and potions and try Astaxanthin Cream.
What a pleasure in both the effect and price. A first class product!!!
