Antioxidants and Your energy
Antioxidants are warriors that guard the immune system from free radicals. Free radicals are like Mr. Digger that comes and takes over underneath your toenails. A free radical is a structure with an unpaired electron. When an electron is unpaired it tends to be more volatile or in other words highly reactive, resulting in chemical reaction such as oxidation. They scavenge the body to grab or donate electrons, causing damage to cells, proteins and DNA.
Free radicals are naturally occurring; however, air pollution, stress, smoking, heavy exercising and aging all contribute to the creation of harmful free radicals. Normally the body is able to protect itself from the damaging effects of free radicals, but if antioxidants are unavailable, or if free radical production becomes excessive, damage can occur.
Antioxidants are natural cell protectors, neutralizing free radicals by pairing an electron to the outermost shell of radical oxygen molecules, rendering them harmless. Antioxidants are nutrients that are capable of counteracting the damaging, but normal, effects of the physiological process of oxidation in bodily tissues. Antioxidants work in two ways: chain breaking and prevention. Chain-breaking antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E, stabilize free radicals or cause them to decay into harmless atomic structures. A preventative antioxidant prevents the oxidation process by scavenging free radicals. Many experts believe this damage plays a part in a number of chronic diseases, including hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), cancer, and arthritis. Free radicals can also interfere with your immune system. So fighting off damage with antioxidants helps keep your immune system strong, making you better able to ward off colds, flu, and other infections.
Because of the free radicals, the energy levels goes down which in turn make you feel sluggish and tired. Most of the time people will tend towards drinking caffeine to get the boost. We often look to popular choices like soda and coffee drinks as a quick source of energy, though they are often high in sugar and calories. And even though they might provide the quick bolt of energy we’re looking for, it disappears just as quickly, usually lasting no more than 30minutes.
For peak performance and vibrant health, we need sustained and focused energy. I would like to present a unique multi-nutrient system that was developed as a nutritional source of energy and enhanced mental focus. It’s a sugar-free drink mix that has more than 20 vitamins, minerals and nutrients that work synergistically to provide a healthy, balanced and effective source of energy that won’t overburden or overstimulate your body like other energy drinks on the market. This amazing product serves as an all-in-one solution that gives you a quick boost of energy that lasts for hours. This drink has antioxidants that help with fighting the free radicals in your system, which in turn prevents the cellular damage. Boost you energy and mental clarity, use SPARK.
