LOS ANGELES, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Schoenwetter Supplements, LLC announces the release of an advanced concept formulation of antioxidants, RxQ Antioxidant Complex. Its proprietary antioxidant formula takes into consideration not only adding antioxidants that can rapidly be depleted but is mindful of the necessary other constituents that serve to help recycle some important antioxidant systems that are everywhere present in our bodies.
"Unique to the RxQ Antioxidant Complex formulation are functional antioxidants that have additional properties that are not only to help protect and quench free radicals but have age reversing effects of helping to restore bone and lean body mass – but also to help have cognitive memory and even mood enhancing effects," says Dr. Schoenwetter, company founder.
Oxidative stress occurs when unstable free radicals interact with molecules in the body, causing damage to the cellular DNA, proteins and other substances, and resulting in cellular malfunction and premature cell death. Multiple clinical research studies have linked oxidative stress with a host of serious acute and chronic medical conditions, including heart disease and dementia. While the body is able to fight off some of the effects of free radicals with its own natural stores of antioxidants, the daily barrage of pollutants and other factors that spur the development of free radicals is often insufficient.
RxQ Antioxidant Complex was developed to supplement the body's natural defense system composed of vital antioxidant vitamins and minerals, as well as the amino acids that support antioxidant development.
To really understand how RxQ Antioxidant Complex can help prevent oxidative damage and enjoy optimal health and wellness, you need to understand the oxidative process and the role free radical molecules play in the disease process. And that means a quick trip back through time to high school chemistry class:
What you should know about free radicals and oxidative stress:
Molecules are comprised of positively-charged protons and negatively-charged electrons. When the electrons and protons are equal, their charges balance each other and the molecule is stable. But when there are more or less electrons, the molecule will seek out a balance by joining with other molecules or "borrowing" electrons from another molecule. Free radicals are molecules with uneven numbers of protons and electrons, which means they're unstable and very reactive. They form when certain molecules react with oxygen. (*See Note.)
Because they're not "stable," free radicals are very reactive, and they can cause significant damage at the cellular level, including changes in cellular DNA and the cellular membrane. These changes can cause cells to malfunction or even to die prematurely. Oxidative stress describes what happens to the cells and the body when free radicals are allowed to proliferate and cause widespread damage to cells, tissues and organs.
So what triggers free radicals to "act up?" Oxidative stress can be caused by many environmental and lifestyle factors. Some of the most common include UV radiation from the sun or tanning beds, radiation diagnostic x-rays, MRIs and CT scans, ozone, and exposure to all sorts of pollutants, including car exhaust, smog and fine, airborne particulates. Some medications can trigger an excess of free radicals, and so can smoking and eating an unhealthy diet.
Oxidative stress and health and wellness:
A lot of the damage done by oxidative stress is due to damage to cells' genetic material, or DNA. When the DNA inside a cell is damaged, it can affect the way the cell functions, causing it to die prematurely, multiply rapidly or behave in other unexpected and potentially dangerous ways. Damage at the cellular level may not sound serious, but because our cells control all the processes in our bodies, the effects can be significant. Some of the medical conditions associated with free radical damage include depression and other inflammatory conditions.
That's just a partial and new research is continually revealing links between oxidative stress and other acute and chronic conditions that can have a debilitating effect on quality of living.
Antioxidants to the rescue!
Fortunately, the body has developed its own defense system to fight off free radical damage. This system uses antioxidants, molecules that are able to safely interact with free radicals and disable or "inactivate" them. Antioxidants battle free radicals from within the body, setting up a powerful defense that can prevent or negate the damage these highly-reactive molecules can cause. The most important antioxidants include vitamins A, C and E and the mineral selenium. The bad news is, unlike a lot of micronutrients, many antioxidants cannot be manufactured by your body, or they aren't manufactured in enough quantity to consistently fight off free radical damage.
Antioxidants that are produced by the body rely on amino acids which are often lacking in modern diets. What's more, as we age, our bodies' natural production of some antioxidants declines, leaving us far more vulnerable to oxidative stress.
While it would be nice to think eating a well-balanced diet is all you have to do to get enough of these important antioxidants and amino acids, the fact is, it's actually a lot more difficult than it sounds. For one thing, today's busy schedules can make it difficult to ensure we get all the nutrients we need each and every day to stay healthy. Even when we do try to eat a healthy, balanced diet, some nutrients just aren't easy to find in a lot of readily-available foods, and to get the required amounts of antioxidants and essential and non-essential amino acids would mean eating enormous portion sizes of some foods.
A simpler and more direct way to get the antioxidants we need is to take supplements. Just as with food, it's important to be picky when choosing the right supplement. Selecting one that's designed specifically for preventing oxidative stress and which adheres to strict guidelines to ensure the proper amounts of each nutrient is the best way to feel confident you're getting the nutrients you need.
RxQ antioxidant complex – the custom solution for free radical damage:
RxQ was developed specifically to address oxidative stress and the free radicals that cause it. Its patent-pending formulation is based on clinical studies that have underscored the importance of the essential antioxidant vitamins A, C and E and the mineral selenium, as well as amino acids necessary for the body's natural production of antioxidants.
Unlike other antioxidant supplements, RxQ Antioxidant Complex was developed by a specialist in functional medicine, a medical specialty that focuses on the interactions between the environment and the systems and organs in the body. That means the supplement's proprietary formula has been created based on solid clinical research using safe and reliable methods consumers can rely on for optimal benefits. Plus, the supplements are gluten-free, hypoallergenic and contain no artificial colors or flavors. Even the capsules are vegetarian.
The fact is, everyone is exposed to free radicals during the course of every day life and living, and that means everyone is at risk for developing the serious medical conditions associated with oxidative stress. But the good news is, being healthier doesn't have to be difficult. Helping your body help itself begins with twice-a-day supplementation with RxQ Antioxidant Complex.
