What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radical damage may lead to cancer. Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free radicals and may prevent some of the damage free radicals might otherwise cause. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C, E, and A, and other substances.

What antioxidants do is shuffle energy, or electrons. They keep energy flowing in a way that prevents damage to the cells and tissues. It is a good idea to form a large circle of antioxidants that allows energy to flow smoothly in the body's cells.

Select Group of Antioxidants:

Vitamin A
Vitamin C
Vitamin E

Plants are constantly being bombarded by sunlight and ultraviolet rays. Since they can't just go inside or erect a parasol when they've had enough sun, they produce strong antioxidants to protect their cells against cell damage from ultraviolet radiation and other environmental carcinogens. It is a potent group of antioxidants, and having a daily intake of them is an important disease-preventing measure. Several hundred of these antioxidants are known to exist, and the most potent and beneficial ones are these six:

Flavonoids are antioxidant phytochemicals that form the water-soluble colors of vegetables, fruits, grains, leaves, and bark. Flavonoids come in many forms, and different plants contain different concentrations of them. Some flavonoids may have up to fifty times more antioxidant activity than vitamins C and E. Impressively, flavonoids from red grapes are more than a thousand times more powerful than vitamin E in inhibiting oxidation of human LDL cholesterol. A steady intake of flavonoids can do a lot for your health.


Isoflavones are found in soybeans and other legumes. In the body, they are converted to phytoestrogens (plant estrogens), compounds that may help inhibit the growth of hormone-dependent cancers and other cancers. In addition, they lower total cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease.

All minerals are antioxidants and must be acquired through the diet, because none of them are produced by the body. Minerals are exceedingly important for the proper functioning of the body and the assimilation of vitamins. Selenium and zinc are the two most powerful mineral antioxidants.

This antioxidant is also known as ubiquinone, since it is present in every living cell. It provides the cells with energy to effectively carry out their functions. Without this antioxidant, our cells would simply not work. The levels of Q10 fall with increasing age, a fact which may have impact on the diseases and illnesses we associate with age. Infection, stress, and poor eating habits can also affect the body's ability to produce sufficient amounts of this necessary enzyme. Q10 shares many of its antioxidant properties with vitamin E. It has been shown to increase energy, improve heart function, help reverse gum disease, and strengthen the immune system. It may also slow the deterioration rate in Parkinson's disease, and is the only known substance to have that effect. Coenzyme Q10 has many other positive effects and is a most valuable antioxidant ally in disease prevention and anti-aging. Coenzyme Q10 is found in meat, dairy products, eggs, cereals and vegetables. Storage, processing and cooking significantly reduces the Q10 content of these foods, so supplementing your diet with additional Q10 is a good idea.

Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo Biloba is a potent antioxidant herb which is best known for improving circulation. It helps increase the blood supply to the brain, the heart, and all other body parts. It strengthens the mental processes and the ability to concentrate, as well as ease muscle pain and improve male potency. For this last reason, Ginkgo Biloba is sometimes known as "nature's Viagra". Interestingly, this antioxidant may improve perception and social functioning in victims of Alzheimer's disease. Like many other antioxidants, it protects cells from free radicals and may therefore prevent cancer and slow the aging process. Macular degeneration of the eyes may be prevented and treated with Ginkgo Biloba, which also has been shown to work as an antidepressant. Ginkgo Biloba is widely available as a supplement.

This antioxidant is produced in the liver from amino acids. It protects cells throughout the body, and may help prevent cancer, especially of the liver. Glutathione is beneficial as an immune system booster, a detoxifier of heavy metals and drugs, and may also protect against radiation poisoning and negative effects of smoking and alcohol abuse. It also functions as an anti-inflammatory treatment of allergies and arthritis. Glutathione is found in vegetables and fruit, but cooking will significantly reduce its potency. Taking it as a supplement is a good idea.

Lipoic acid
This antioxidant is produced naturally by the body. It is a unique defender against free radicals, and is sometimes called the universal antioxidant. Many other internally produced antioxidants have specific jobs, whereas lipoic acid enhances the activities of other antioxidants in the body, as well as being an excellent antioxidant on its own account. Lipoic acid may, for instance, temporarily fill in for vitamins C or E if their levels are low. Because of its ability to pass through the blood-brain barrier, it can reverse the negative effects caused by a stroke. Lipoic acid helps normalize blood sugar levels and can prevent serious complications from diabetes. Our bodies' production of lipoic acid decreases with advancing age, so it is a very beneficial supplement for those over age forty.

This antioxidant hormone is produced by the brain's pineal gland during sleep and helps maintain the body's natural biorhythm. Melatonin may also help retard the aging process, especially by preventing the oxidative damage to brain cells that are associated with Alzheimer's and other conditions. Cluster headaches may be alleviated by melatonin, and it has the ability to boost the immune system's ability to stop tumors from spreading. Melatonin is found in tomatoes and other vegetables, and is available as a supplement. As we age, the body produces less and less melatonin, so for a lot of people over forty, a melatonin supplement is a good idea.

Superoxide dismutase
This antioxidant is an enzyme which is particularly powerful with skin tissue, revitalizing cells and reducing the rate of cell destruction. Superoxide dismutase helps the body use essential zinc, copper and manganese. Good sources of this antioxidant are barley grass, cabbage, wheatgrass and broccoli. As we age, our bodies produces less of this beneficial antioxidant, so supplementation could be an important factor in reducing wrinkles and retarding the aging process.

Aloe Vera
Green Tea
Milk Thistle
Wolfberry, Mangosteen, Gac (spiny bitter cucumber), and Goji berries

Can antioxidants prevent cancer?

Considerable laboratory evidence from chemical, cell culture, and animal studies indicates that antioxidants may slow or possibly prevent the development of cancer.

Antioxidants for Immunity: Where to Find Them

Adding more fruit and vegetables of any kind to your diet will improve your health. But some foods are higher in antioxidants than others. The three major antioxidant vitamins are beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. You’ll find them in colorful fruits and vegetables – especially those with purple, blue, red, orange, and yellow hues. To get the biggest benefits of antioxidants, eat these foods raw or lightly steamed; don’t overcook or boil.

Q-Best 50 - Product Image

Q-Best 50

Q-Best 50 (formerly known as Q-Cell)

In fish gelatin gelcaps!
exclusive crystal-free CoQ10 for superior absorption

  • Proprietary formula demonstrated superior absorption over other CoQ10 forms, including dry powder, oil, nanoparticle, and liposomal preparations
  • Promotes normal cardiovascular function*
  • Enhances blood vessel function*
  • Essential nutrient for cellular energy production*
  • All-natural – no chemical additives or titanium dioxide

Product Information

Q-Best® is a proprietary, crystal-free preparation of coenzyme Q10 (aka ubiquinone) that consistently has demonstrated superior absorption over other forms of CoQ10, including dry powder, oil-based softgels, lipsosomes, micelles, and nanoparticle preparations.

All supplemental CoQ10 originates in a crystal (dry powder) form. However, this crystal form alone is not well absorbed because the crystals do not fully dissolve in the intestines and the body cannot absorb lipid crystals. When crystals are dissolved in a lipid-based delivery system (ie, oil-based softgels, liposomes, micelles, and nanoparticles), absorption is improved. However, there is still partial crystallization found in these preparations.

Q-Best provides CoQ10 in a fully dissolved, crystal-free, lipid-based form, allowing greater absorption by the intestinal mucosa. This is accomplished by a proprietary, tri-lipid delivery system. One lipid keeps the CoQ10 crystals fully dissolved at 10°C above body temperature; the second lipid keeps the CoQ10 crystals fully dissolved below body temperature; and the third lipid acts as a carrier molecule to facilitate absorption.

Clinical trials demonstrate superior absorption over dried powder preparations. One human bioavailability trial demonstrated a 265% higher CoQ10 blood level from Q-Best, compared to dry powder. In addition, a plasma CoQ10 bioavailability study observed absorption Q-Best to be vastly greater than other forms of CoQ10, including oils suspension, nanoparticle, and liposomal preparations. This is why we believe Q-Best is the best CoQ10 formula available today.

Coenzyme Q10 functions as an intracellular antioxidant.* Due to its involvement in energy production within the cell, CoQ10 affects the function of all cells in the body, making it essential for the health of tissues and organs.* CoQ10 particularly benefits the most metabolically active cells: heart, immune system, gingiva, and gastric mucosa.* An adequate supply of intracellular CoQ10 is vital to the health of heart muscle.* CoQ10 supports normal heart rhythm and can help maintain already normal blood pressure.*

Q10 Plus

Q10 Plus

coenzyme Q10 with nutrients and botanicals to benefit the heart*

  • nutritional support for a healthy heart muscle*
  • helps maintain already normal blood pressure*
  • supports good circulation*
  • enhances integrity of the blood vessels*

Product Information

This combination of coenzyme Q10, hawthorne (Crataegus oxycantha), potassium, taurine, and magnesium provides the heart muscle with nutrients for healthy functioning.*

CoQ10 is a vital element for the heart.* Cells of the heart muscle have a high metabolism and need CoQ10 as an energy-producing cofactor.* CoQ10 also serves as an antioxidant.* Numerous studies on CoQ10 show its benefit in cardiovascular function.* In a 73-subject study with CoQ10 supplementation at 120 mg daily, improvements were observed after 28 days.*

Taurine is an essential nutrient cofactor for cardiac function and the most abundant amino acid in the heart.* Research indicates supplementation with taurine supports already normal levels of cholesterol, probably due to taurine's ability to help convert cholesterol to bile acids.* In addition, taurine aids in the regulation of intracellular calcium levels, which helps protect the heart muscle and support cardiac function.*

Flavonoid compounds in hawthorne appear to strengthen blood vessels and support cardiac function; whereas, flavonoids in Ginkgo promote blood flow.* Hawthorne has been shown to be supportive of good cardiac health by helping to maintain already normal blood pressure, heart rate, and exercise capacity.* The flavonoids in hawthorne and Ginkgo act as antioxidants and may improve artery function, which promotes dilation and blood flow.*

Magnesium and potassium are minerals necessary for proper cardiovascular function.*

PolyResveratrol-SR - Product Image


PolyResveratrol-SR, by Thorne Research (Antioxidant & Flavonoid Section)

pure resveratrol with synergistic ingredients

  • supports blood vessel health*
  • enhances SIRT-1 (the longevity enzyme) activity*
  • supports the body's normal inflammatory response*
  • enhances liver function and detoxification*
  • promotes normal cell proliferation*

Product Information

Poly-Resveratrol contains pure resveratrol, along with synergistic plant extracts and a resveratrol metabolite, that optimize the metabolism and utilization of this fascinating nutrient and enhance its numerous metabolic, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, and anti-aging properties.*

Research on the ingredients in Poly-Resveratrol has demonstrated numerous anti-aging effects:*

Resveratrol: A flavonoid-like molecule found in grapes, mulberries, and other plants, resveratrol mimics the anti-aging effects of calorie restriction.* A significant decrease in the harmful effects of a high-fat, high-calorie diet was observed in mice, most likely due to increased fat metabolism from the up-regulation of the SIRT-1 enzyme, which acts as a cellular switch by both increasing the number of mitochondria and supporting their function. SIRT-1 also has a positive impact on blood glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity, and cell survival.*

Pterostilbene: A naturally-occurring methylated metabolite of resveratrol, pterostilbene appears to be better absorbed than resveratrol and is not as easily broken down in the liver.* Animal and in vitro studies show pterostilbene has anti-aging effects similar to resveratrol, but it reaches higher levels in the blood and is longer lasting in the body.*

Curcumin Phytosome, Green Tea Phytosome, and water-soluble Quercetin: Research shows quercetin slows the breakdown of resveratrol in the body, acts as a potent antioxidant, and is synergistic with the activities of resveratrol.* Green Tea Phytosome has a positive effect on fat metabolism, promotes optimal liver detoxification, and is highly absorbed.* Curcumin Phytosome is significantly better absorbed than a standardized curcumin extract, and studies show it supports the body's normal inflammatory response and demonstrates synergistic anti-aging activity with resveratrol.*


Two Capsules Contain:
Curcumin Phytosome* (Curcuma longa extract (root) / Phosphatidylcholine complex) 100 mg.
Green Tea Phytosome* (Camellia sinensis extract (leaf) / Phosphatidylcholine complex) 100 mg.
Quercetin (water-soluble) 100 mg.
