Ultra Anti-Oxidant, provided by Douglas

Laboratories, is a potent antioxidant dietary

supplement that includes not only antioxidant

vitamins such as ascorbate and d-alpha tocopheryl

succinate, but also other nutrients that effectively

participate in our body’s antioxidant defense systems.

Body cells and tissues are threatened continuously by

damage caused by toxic free radicals and reactive

oxygen species (e.g., peroxides) which are produced

during normal oxygen metabolism, by other chemical

reactions, and by toxic agents in the environment. Free

radicals, once formed, are capable of disrupting

metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs,

additional free radicals are produced which, in turn, can

result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues.

The uncontrolled production of free radicals is thought

to be a major contributing factor to many degenerative

pathologies.

The body’s antioxidant defense system is more than the

sum of its parts. That’s because antioxidants depend on

each other for ongoing effectiveness. For example,

beta-carotene supports vitamin E, recognized as the

body’s most valuable fat soluble antioxidant. It

prevents oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids by

inactivating free radicals, thus stabilizing and

protecting cell membranes, e.g. in the lungs, eyes, and

arteries. Vitamin E can be regenerated by vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a potent water-soluble antioxidant

nutrient, also protecting cells from oxygen free radical

damage. It is essential for connective tissue and bone

metabolism, capillary health, and immune function.

Vitamin C works together with vitamin E. When

vitamin E is inactivated by neutralizing free radicals,

vitamin C regenerates it back to full activity. In this

process, however, vitamin C is oxidized and loses its

antioxidant activity. Glutathione reactivates vitamin C,

while selenium and B-vitamins are needed to keep

glutathione effective.

Glutathione is a naturally occurring tripeptide which is

a major component of two anti-free radical enzymes -

glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. As

such, glutathione offers one mechanism for scavenging

toxic free radicals and inhibiting peroxidation thereby

slowing down free-radical catalyzed chain reactions.

Glutathione can also reactivate (reduce) oxidized

vitamin C. Glutathione per se is well absorbed in the

intestine, and enters the blood and other extracellular

compartments where it exerts much of its beneficial

antioxidant effects. However, it can not effectively

enter the cell.

N-Acetylcysteine is a precursor for the sulfur amino

acid cysteine which is used by the cells to synthesize

glutathione. In contrast to glutathione, N-acetylcysteine

is efficiently transported into the cell where it is readily

converted to cysteine for glutathione synthesis. Thus,

supplementation with N-acetylcysteine is recognized as

a safe, highly effective method of increasing

intracellular glutathione stores. Aside from providing

cysteine as a glutathione precursor, N-acetylcysteine

also appears to have antioxidant properties as such, and

is a valuable sulfur donor for various metabolic needs.

The bioflavonoids of Ultra Anti-Oxidant, i.e. rutin,

heseridin, and Pycnogenol?, provide additional

antioxidant power, while zinc is needed to maintain the

activity of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase.
