Antioxidant [super] Blend…Not A One-Note Samba

Eating or drinking one or two ingredient antioxidant supplements is like having an orchestra with one or two instruments.  It’s not a full complement. 

 Dr. Passwater says the following about antioxidants in his book, “The Antioxidants”:

 “Combinations of antioxidants are like a balanced symphony working together. A symphony orchestra produces sounds so much more harmonious than merely having 20 drums playing. It is not the quantity, but the blend. The same is true with antioxidant nutrients: you get better results with moderate amounts of a full complement than you get with using very large amounts of just one nutrient… In general, the different reducing agents in the body “talk to one another” freely, and thus, it is probably important that all of our pools of reducing agents be maintained. For this reason, most of us in the field recommend that a person take a variety of antioxidants (a “cocktail”), not just a single substance.”

Dr. Passwater concludes: “The importance of synergism is that the antioxidant nutrients each contribute to the total protection. They work together in the antioxidant cycle and reach all body compartments–fat and water-based, blood and internal cell. They protect against all types of free radicals and reactive oxygen species. No one antioxidant can do all of this.”

Our morning blend of antioxidants – GREENS FIRST – is a full complement of start-the-day-right vegetables and fruits in a pleasant tasting blend.  Our afternoon blend of antioxidants – RED ALERT – is a fruit and vegetable mix to give you that bit of a boost in the afternoon you need.  Both blends are a synergistic, phytonutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich complement of certified and organic vegetables and fruit.
