broad-spectrum antioxidant formula to aid in all phases of liver detoxification*
- much more than the basic A, C, E, and selenium antioxidant
- supports normal detoxification processes*
- provides glutathione and its precursors, including N-acetycysteine (NAC), for enhanced liver support*
- contains alpha-lipoic acid – an important antioxidant in both fat- and water-soluble environments*
Anti-Oxidant has long been one of Thorne Research's best sellers. Instead of the basic A, C, E, selenium combination, Anti-Oxidant provides nutrients that support the body during liver and systemic detoxification.* Vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, zinc, and selenium work collectively as cofactors in many enzyme systems to support metabolism and detoxification.* Vitamin C directly protects fat-soluble vitamins A and E and some B vitamins from oxidation.*
A number of amino acids and other organic acids are essential for detoxification of free radicals.* Research on dimethylglycine has demonstrated its ability to enable tissues to improve oxygen utilization, ultimately protecting the body from free radical damage created by stress.* N-acetylcysteine replenishes the body's glutathione levels by providing the rate-limiting substrate (cysteine) for glutathione synthesis.
Glutamic acid is converted in the body to glutathione and glutamine and is most helpful in clearing potentially toxic ammonia by-products.* Alpha-lipoic acid is a readily absorbed antioxidant that exerts its action in both fat-soluble and water-soluble tissues.* Anti-Oxidant provides lipoic acid in the all-natural, most bioavailable form – R-lipoic acid.* Reduced glutathione (GSH) is an essential cofactor for many detoxification and antioxidant enzyme systems.* In addition to the endogenous antioxidant capacity of glutathione, GSH status in the body is a highly sensitive indicator of cell function and viability.* Glycine is an important amino acid, supporting liver detoxification and enhancing the body's glutathione stores.*
