Blackmores Bio Ace Excell
Pollutants, sun, stress, poor diet, alcohol and some medications can cause our bodies to produce free radicals which can lead to cell damage. Antioxidants are nutrients that reduce the risk of cell damage attributed to free radicals.
Bio ACE Excell with grape seed + Selenium is a potent antioxidant providing nutrients that reduce the susceptibility of body tissues to free radical-mediated processes in cell membranes. Vitamins C and E are well documented for their powerful antioxidant activity and are the subject of clinical trials worldwide. They are combined here with betacarotene (another powerful antioxidant which may be indicated where there is a dietary deficiency of vitamin A), and zinc (which has an antioxidant role in the skin where it is involved in the functions of wound healing and normal oil gland function). The vitamins B1, B12 and folic acid are included due to their essential role in the metabolism of the amino acid homocysteine. Selenium is an essential antioxidant mineral that performs many functions in the body including preservation of normal liver function and maintaining resistance to disease.
Grape seeds contain catechin polymers called oligomeric procyanidins (commonly known as OPCs), which are highly bioavailable and powerful antioxidants, appearing to be both complementary to and synergistic with vitamins (in particular they protect and complement the free radical scavenging effect of vitamin C). Grape seed extract assists in the maintenance of peripheral circulation and capillary fragility. Milk Thistle has a protective effect on the cell membrane which is mediated by a strong free radical scavenging and antioxidant action. It assists in detoxification processes in the liver by increasing the activity of super oxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase.
