The problem with all antioxidants is twofold:
No matter how large the antioxidant molecule it gives up only one electron for the purposes of neutralizing free radical activity.
When an antioxidant donates an electron to neutralize free radicals it becomes a free radical. Of course it is weaker and less harmful than that which it neutralized but, nonetheless, it becomes a free radical.
This process is known as the electron cascade and is the reason for including a broad spectrum of antioxidants in any supplemental nutritional program.
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, in his original research for which he won the Nobel Prize for his work on Vitamin C, discussed electron flow in the body. Electrons move but never by themselves. There needs to be a carrier. That carrier is the hydrogen atom with the extra electron in the outer shell.
Free electrons affect the body in a very positive way as the free radicals are neutralized. Since free radicals normally steal electrons from cell walls and DNA structure the inevitable result is abnormal cell function and eventually disease. Science is very clear that free radicals are the basis for many of the major disease processes in the body today. The hydrogen also feeds into the energy cycle of the body providing healthy energy and creating less fatigue.
Stop Sickness before It Starts- Improve Your Biochemical Environment
Getting sick requires that your natural resistance break down. All cells live in the biological fluid. It is the environment in which they function day to day. A balanced biochemistry means balanced fluid which in turn means healthy, vibrant cells. When cells are healthy, sickness can't get a foothold. This is letting the body and your natural defense system do the job it is designed to do ... stay healthy!
So, if you are an athlete who has hit a wall in your training, suffers from DOMS, truly wants to experience more energy, less fatigue, or improved mental clarity, see how can this simple hydrogen atom can improve your performance while:
- fighting free radical damage throughout the body
- balancing the body's chemistry through the Biological Terrain
- helping to resist sickness
- and even reversing the disease process and slow down aging
