Antioxidants help our bodies cope with the terrible environmental pollution that surrounds us and helps to protect our skin from free radical damage. Our own bodies produce antioxidants and nature also provides us with hundreds of antioxidants (phytochemicals) in the foods we eat. Phytochemicals are naturally occurring compounds like: enzymes, pigments, and hormones that plants create for their own protection and survival, and they also give plants their colour, odor, and taste. For example, beta-carotene is the carotenoid that gives carrots their orange colour, but there may be as many as 600 different carotenoids in foods!
Your daily vegetable and fruit consumption provides you with many beneficial phytochemicals and antioxidants. Unfortunately, because we do not know the quality of the soil in which our conventional and organic fruits and veggies are grown in, we can’t guarantee that we are completely protected from free radical damage. This is why supplementing with antioxidant vitamins is so important for the body to thrive and be its best self.
Antioxidant vitamins are some of the most important supplements for reversing eczema. Antioxidants stimulate collagen synthesis, nourish and protect the skin, improve the skin’s texture and help with optimal fatty acid metabolism. Vitamin C and other antioxidants like vitamin E, A and D may be able to prevent environmental damage from the activity of free radicals. Instead of taking single antioxidant supplements like Vitamin C, E and Beta Carotene, you’re better off using whole food antioxidant supplements because they contain the two types of antioxidants – the nutrients and their natural enzymes (man-made supplements do not).
The antioxidant nutrients (such as vitamins A , C and E) are derived from the diet and have their primary effect while circulating in the blood outside of the cells. The antioxidant enzyme system (superoxide dismutase “SOD”, catalase and others found naturally in foods) is produced by the body inside and outside of the cells. This gives the anti oxidant enzyme system a much greater advantage in controlling free radicals because free radical production occurs primarily inside the cell.
One of the best antioxidants on the market today is a supplement made from organically grown wheat sprouts, kale sprouts, red clover sprouts, wild-crafted blue green algae and Dunaliella Salina (a sea microalgae). This supplement is a whole-food full spectrum antioxidant and is the most effective first-line-of-defense against free radicals because it supplies the skin with antioxidants nutrients AND natural enzymes.
Being a whole food supplement, the wheat sprouts and algae not only contain the highest amount of antioxidant enzyme activity available today in any antioxidant supplement, but also contain every single co-enzyme factor naturally occurring within the sprouts and algae . This is very important, for as with any nutrient, enzymes do not work alone. The overall synergistic effect of having all of the enzymes together with vitamins and minerals instead of being isolated, as in many man-made antioxidant supplements, is a big reason why the wheat sprouts and algae supplement is able to deliver one million units of total antioxidant enzyme activity! This supplement contains 100% of the recommended daily intake of both vitamin C and vitamin E!
