GENEWAY™ Antioxidant helps neutralize free radicals and provides protection at a cellular and DNA level. This powerful antioxidant formula contains effective nutraceuticals for improved general health, protection, and detoxification.
What is oxidative stress
Antioxidants are compounds that protect the body cells from the damaging effects of chemical reactions with oxygen (oxidation). Oxidative Stress-Free radicals, or reactive oxygen species (ROS), are waste substances produced by cells as the body processes food and reacts to the environment. If the body cannot process and remove free radicals efficiently, oxidative stress can result. Factors that increase the production of free radicals in the body can be internal, e.g. inflammation, or external, e.g. UV exposure.
What causes oxidative stress
Activities and processes that can lead to oxidative stress include:
- consumption of certain foods, especially refined and processed foods, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, and certain dyes and additives
- environmental pollution
- excessive exercise
- exposure to chemicals, such as pesticides and drugs, including chemotherapy
- industrial solvents
- ischemia and reperfusion damage
- mitochondrial activity
- tissue trauma, due to inflammation and injury
Oxidative stress has been linked to heart disease, cancer, arthritis, stroke, respiratory diseases, immune deficiency, Parkinson's disease and other conditions. Antioxidants help neutralises free radicals and this is thought to boost overall health. The body produces some antioxidants, known as endogenous antioxidants, e.g. glutathione. If genetic mutations are present, the body’s ability to produce these antioxidants is significantly reduced. Antioxidants that are obtained from the diet are called exogenous and are not produced by genetic enzymes, e.g. Vitamin C
