To understand the value of antioxidants found in many AIM products, it is vital to grasp that they protect you from the negative effects of oxygen. Breathing sustains life but also produces free radicals that attack stable molecules in your body. This can create a chain of imbalance and the spread of cellular damage from oxidative stress, a major factor in health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, preventing the harmful effects of oxidative stress.
Your body produces antioxidants but not enough of these inner—endogenous—antioxidants to offset all the free radicals created from normal metabolic function. An external source—exogenous antioxidants—is necessary to prevent cellular damage from oxidative stress. Both internal and external antioxidants are invaluable as “free-radical scavengers” that hunt and tame the bad guys.
Kept in balance, free radicals serve a purpose. For example, your body’s immune cells use free radicals to kill infection-causing bacteria. The key is to have enough antioxidants to help keep free radicals in check. It’s not easy because free radicals are also produced by external factors, including UV rays, pollution, smoking and unhealthy foods. Supplementing wisely with AIM products helps maintain an antioxidant edge, especially as you age.
As the benefits of antioxidants became well-known, some studies concluded that the naturally occurring antioxidants in fruits and vegetables should be the primary source. However, wholesome food can be further supported by taking AIM nutrition that includes whole-food concentrates and Proancynol 2000. Supplementation provides an even wider assortment of antioxidants to help fight destructive free radicals and prevent the ravages of oxidative stress. Your cells are engaged in a daily war; AIM nutrition is a valuable ally in winning that conflict.
