Antioxidants: Free Radical Scavengers That Keep You In Good Shape

Free radicals are a fact of life. Every time your body uses oxygen to metabolize nutrients, you create these rogue molecules. Consequently, your body needs a constant supply of free radical scavengers (also known as antioxidants) to sweep them up.

Thankfully, nature provides a slew of antioxidants to balance things out. From turmeric’s curcumin to green tea; from alpha lipoic acid to vitamin C, you can get these important nutrients through your diet to keep free radicals in check.

One of the most powerful of these free radical scavengers is the antioxidant, Vitamin E.

  • Vitamin E mops up free radicals with a vengeance.
  • Research indicates this fat soluble antioxidant may help with heart, liver, and nerve health.
  • Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.

Be warned – although it’s in numerous supplements - you don’t get nearly the same level of positive benefits from synthetic vitamin E. Studies indicate the natural form may be as much as twice as bioavailable. NOW® uses only the natural form of vitamin E as d-alpha tocopherol in its supplements.

While all of the free radical scavenging vitamin E used in NOW products is in the natural d-alpha form, a unique product from NOW you can try is NOW’s Sun-E™ 400 softgels. Unlike most vitamin E supplements, Sun-E™ is not derived from soy beans but from non-GMO sunflower seed oil. This makes it safe if you have soy allergies or sensitivities.

Like all NOW products, Sun-E™ is made with a keen attention to quality.
