Free radicals that damage cells and contribute to the signs of aging aren’t just a problem for those who live in high-smog areas. The research has revealed molecules that can attach themselves to a variety of particles found in the air, that they’re present even in pristine wilderness environments, and they can remain indefinitely to present an ongoing health risk.*
The research was performed at the Louisiana State University in 2008 and detected a previously unknown class of pollutants. The newly discovered molecules bind themselves to pollutants and can travel on the wind far from their point of origin, exposing individuals to up to 300 times more free radicals than if they smoked a single cigarette.*
Researchers are hailing the find as highly significant and a possible explanation for why otherwise healthy people with no history of tobacco use develop diseases and chronic conditions commonly associated with smoking. The molecules have the ability to attach themselves to a wide variety of air-borne particles, especially heavy metals that are present in highly industrialized areas.*
When the molecules combine with particulates in the air, they’re inhaled and absorbed by the body’s tissues where they contribute to cellular damage and the outward signs of aging. Even short-term exposure to the persistent free radicals (PFRs) has the potential to increase respiratory illnesses, heart disease and impairment to the immune system.*
The body produces its own antioxidants, but when sufficient numbers of free radicals are present they can overwhelm the body’s ability to neutralize them effectively. A daily boost of antioxidants may be the body’s best defense against PFRs.*
In addition to the newly discovered PFRs, the human body is exposed to free radicals through diagnostic procedures, UVA and UVB rays, and extensive computer usage. Those engaged in frequent air travel, daily commutes, and intensive forms of exercise and physical activities are also at increased risk.*
The proprietary blend of amino acids and complementary ingredients available in Schoenwetter, LLC’s RxQ Antioxidant Complex provide raw materials that may help individuals fight the effect of PFRs. The unique formula was developed as a result of years of extensive DNA research to aid in supporting the body’s natural antioxidant process.
