Solgar Advanced Antioxidant Formula is an all-encompassing antioxidant formula containing several vitamins and minerals to assist in minimising the damage caused by free radicals.

Free radicals are produced by the body when you breathe, digest food, exercise or even sleep. They are naturally occuring as they are created by emotional stress, ultraviolet light, radiation and air pollution. Free radicals damage the body by causing deterioration of the cells, lower the defences against diseases and putting the body into a ‘stress’ state.

To counter the effect of free radicals, a balance of antioxidants is required. The most important Antioxidants include: Beta-carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc, Selenium and components found in certain plants including Turmeric, and Ginkgo biloba.

Antioxidants can be obtained by eating a healthy and balanced diet, but taking a supplement might be desirable to achieve an optimal intake of antioxidants.

The special Solgar Advanced Antioxidant Formula combines the vitamins C and E, with minerals such as Zinc, Selenium and Copper, all of which have strong antioxidant benefits. To create a holistic approach, several amino acids have also been included in this formula.

Several food based biocompounds have been used to create this specialist formula such as Green Tea, Red Wine and Pycnogenol (a US registered trademark name for products which contain bark from the French maritime pine tree). Plant based antioxidants have been added to further strengthen the combination, using Ginkgo biloba, Spirulina and Milk thistleSolgar Advanced Antioxidant Formula is suitable for those on a vegan diet and to be taken as 2 vegetable capsules daily, containing both vitamins and minerals, as well as amino acids.
