OxyGuard’s formula includes natural-source beta carotene, alpha carotene, lutein, lycopene and other carotenoids balanced much as they occur in a diet of natural foods.
The carotenoids beta carotene and lycopene have a spectrum of antioxidant activity, such as protecting against singlet oxygen, one of the most destructive types of free radical.
OxyGuard contains a highly bioavailable form of selenium which reduces the amount of vitamin E necessary to provide a given level of antioxidant protection.
Quercetin, an antioxidant from the flavonoid family, increases the free radical scavenging ability of the blood and is associated with coronary vascular health.
