DetailsOur Food-Grown® Antioxidant Plus has been formulated for all using ingredients with exceptional antioxidant properties to maximize your protection against free radical damage. An excess of free radical damage (or oxidative stress) from nutrient-low diets, environmental pollutants, stress or illness can result in damage to cellular DNA and speed up the ageing process. This can influence the health of your skin, bones, hormonal equilibrium and immune defences. Increasing your intake of antioxidants plays an important role in protection against premature ageing and the development of degenerative diseases. Each cell in your body has a powerhouse factory called the ‘mitochondria’. This drives everything from energy production to the metabolism of nutrients. These power-houses are very vulnerable to ‘toxicity’, most especially from pollutants found in our food and the environment and therefore require extra antioxidant support to ensure their smooth running. This allows the mitochondria to also go through a process called biogenesis – allowing it to increase its mass and to provide even more energy efficiently. This formula also promotes the natural production of glutathione – the body’s master antioxidant.

Our Food-Grown® Beta-Carotene also provides Vitamin A. Vitamin A contributes to the normal function of the immune system and plays a role in protecting mucus membranes that can become aggravated during infections.
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Our FOOD-GROWN® Vitamin E provides the naturally occurring d-alpha natural form, as well as a natural mix of all the tocopherols and tocotrienols found in food. Studies have shown it to be over nine times better retained by the body than synthetic vitamin E.
Vitamin C contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism; the reduction of tiredness and fatigue; and normal function of bones, cartilage, gums, skin, teeth, blood vessels and collagen formation. Vitamin C also contributes to normal functioning of the nervous and immune systems, and to normal psychological function, as well as increasing iron absorption and the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Vitamin C helps to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise. Our FOOD-GROWN® Vitamin C has shown to be 1,210% more bioavailable than commonly used synthetic isolated ascorbic acid.
Zinc is needed for the normal function of the immune system, vision and the breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates and conversion of Vitamin A and fatty acids. It is a key minerals for normal reproduction and fertility. Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails and bones. It is also required for healthy cognitive function.
Copper contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system, energy-yielding metabolism, immune system and connective tissue. This key trace nutrient also contributes to normal hair pigmentation and normal iron transport in the body, as well as contributing to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Manganese contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the maintenance of normal bones and formation of connective tissue. It also contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Selenium contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and nails, protection of cells from oxidative stress, and the normal function of the immune and thyroid systems. Our Food-Grown® Selenium has been shown to be 22% better absorbed and retained than many other forms of the mineral.
N Acetyl Cysteine
N Acetyl Cysteine Is a precursor to the antioxidant glutathione peroxidase.
CoEnzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring enzyme cofactor for energy systems. Our FOOD-GROWN® CoEnzyme Q10 provides both ubiquinone and ubiquinol.
Turmeric root powder (Organic)
Research shows it contains antioxidants, antimicrobial and liver supporting properties. In addition it help to modulate inflammatory response and healthy detoxification (enhancing activity of glutathione S-transferase & UDP glucuronyl transferase).
Milk Thistle Powder (Organic)
Has traditionally been used to support digestion and routes of elimination in the body. It is known to support phase 1 liver detoxification for its effect on cytochrome P450 enzymes.
Pine Bark Extract
Research shows pine bark contains antioxidant properties.
A well-established plant with high concentrations of antioxidant compounds.
Is rich in the powerful antioxidants and anthocyanins, which give the berries their distinct purple colour.
