What It Is: The colorful pigments found in red, yellow, orange and green plant foods.
Useful For: Sponging up free radicals with oxidized LDL cholesterol, or from any area of low oxygen tension.*
How It Works: When we eat carotenoid-rich foods, we receive antioxidant power. Antioxidants support a strong immune system, normal cell growth, and the long-term health of the heart, lungs, and eyes.
This product is unique because most carotenoids on the market are simply beta-carotene – which can become oxidized and actually become a free radical itself. The advantage of having the varied complex is that some of the carotenoids get involved in donating an electron, and others get involved in regenerating the electrons that get lost during the donating process, thereby eliminating that problem.*
