Anti-oxidant IV drip
The imbalance of free antioxidants and radicals in the body is known as oxidative stress, which can lead to cell and tissue damage. This stress occurs naturally and plays a significant role in the aging process. An extensive collection of scientific evidence suggests the development of a range of chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease can be linked to long-term oxidative stress.
The substances that can prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals are called antioxidants; the body produces these unstable molecules as a reaction to external pressures like the environment, etc. They are sometimes called "free-radical scavengers."
The sources of antioxidants can be natural or artificial. Certain plant-based foods are thought to be rich in antioxidants. Plant-based antioxidants are a kind of phytonutrient or plant-based nutrient. The body also produces some antioxidants, known as endogenous antioxidants. Antioxidants that come from outside the body are called exogenous.
Important dietary antioxidants include:
Vitamin C - a water-soluble antioxidant and essential dietary nutrient.
Vitamin E - a fat-soluble antioxidant that plays a critical role in protecting cell membranes against oxidative damage.
Glutathione - a powerful antioxidant, made of three different amino acids and is found in every cell in the body. Amino acids combine in different patterns to make all of the proteins in the body.
Revival Clinic’s custom blend of vitamins, electrolytes, and Glutathione is a powerful way to boost your body's stores and minimize the damage of free radicals.
Remember oxidative stress can damage and even kill cells all over your body, if untreated!
