Before we describe “Super Antiox-Immune” let us first find out why we would need to take it. So, we’ll begin by explaining the need for antioxidants in the human body and why this particular supplement falls into the category of “important for maintaining health”.
Let’s begin by explaining, what exactly is “oxidation”?
ox·i·da·tion (ŏk′sĭ-dā′shən)“Oxidation is the combining of oxygen with a chemical substance”.
The chemical combination of a substance with oxygen is also called “burning”. This “burning” is a chemical reaction in which an atom or ion loses electrons, thus undergoing an increase in valence. (ie. Removing an electron from an iron atom having a valence of +2, changes the valence to +3). If you’ve ever seen rust, you’ve seen oxidation. If you’ve ever watched a candle burn, you’ve seen oxidation. And, if you’ve ever breathed, which it’s a good bet you have, you’ve experienced oxidation. In the human body, burning involves oxygen reacting with carbon to free up energy stored within the chemical bonds of substance. In all these cases, oxygen is added to another substance causing a chemical reaction and this is “burning” and the generation of “heat” energy occurs. This is precisely the reason the temperature of the human body is almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Burning is occurring in your body, every second, of every minute, of every hour of your life.
Because water is 55% – 60% of the body’s composition, this burning within the human body, actually takes place inside of a “water-bath”. While the normal temperature of the human body is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, it is the amount of water, that makes up the composition of the body, at any given time, that determines whether the temperature will be higher or lower than normal. Dehydration or loss of water causes the core body temperature to climb, while excess water causes the core body temperature to decrease.
This oxidation or burning within the body creates a “biochemical stress” by the production of “Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)” or “free radicals”. Free radicals are “highly unstable particles”, that are created as a result of millions of oxidative biochemical reactions (burning) in the body and can cause oxidative stress and significant damage on a cellular level.
Because of this potential danger, that could occur from the burning process and subsequent production of free radicals within body, nature provides a remedy for neutralizing these free radicals and this remedy is a group of chemical substances called “Antioxidants” and we get these antioxidants from two distinct sources, those we ingest in our food and those we make within our cells.
Our immune system protects us from all types of “invaders”, ranging from allergens, viruses, bacteria, toxins and cancer. When we are “low or deficient” in antioxidants, from a lack of their ingestion in our foods and/or a lack of cellular production, we then become susceptible and at higher risk for the invasion of infectious agents, toxins or cellular damage and with little or NO immune protection. Having plenty of antioxidants on hand from food and supplements such as Super Antiox-Immune, to neutralize free radicals and stop the oxidative stress from suppressing our immune response, allows the body to markedly produce a potent immune response and reduce the above risks.
