ADDITIONAL FEATURES AND BENEFITS
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
PRO-C™ is a synergistic antioxidant formula, especially in so far as it increases the body’s ability to quench free radicals in its aqueous (i.e., water-based) compartments. Because antioxidants may become free radicals themselves after they have done their job, the body has developed an elaborate system for recovery of oxidized antioxidants. For example, reduced glutathione has the ability to reduce oxidized Vitamin C back to its unoxidized state. Vitamin C reduces oxidized Vitamin E back to its unoxidized state, and both reduces glutathione and spares it for other important functions, including detoxification and immune enhancement.
Many polyphenols (e.g., oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs), anthocyanidins and catechins) found in red grape and green tea extracts spare Vitamin C and glutathione in the body, as well as operate as powerful antioxidants and connective tissue strengtheners. Alpha-Lipoic Acid operates as an antioxidant both in its oxidized and reduced states, reduces the oxidized forms of both Vitamin E and Vitamin C, and enhances glutathione levels. Because several of these substances are able to protect Vitamin E contained in cell membranes, this combination also has a significant beneficial effect on the fat soluble antioxidant status of the body!
The nutrients in PRO-C™ have been carefully selected and balanced to provide optimal effects, especially as related to free radical protection, detoxification, immune system enhancement, and connective tissue strengthening. PRO-C™ therefore provides outstanding nutritional support in a wide variety of conditions, as well as acts to support and maintain a state of health and well-being.
