Antioxidant Supplements: Top 5 Antioxidants Your Body Can’t Live Without

By Dr. Keerthy Sunder

First, What Are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants are a group of vitamins that protect the body from the damaging effects of free radicals.  Antioxidants can be found in foods that are rich with vitamins A, C and E, minerals such as selenium, zinc and copper, and in fruits and vegetables. But why are so important?

As we age, the processes in our body start to slow down; so does the natural production of antioxidants. Antioxidants are responsible for controlling the aging process by fighting against free radicals. What they actually do is help you remain healthy and live longer.

Do You Need an Antioxidant Supplement?

Not always.

Your body has a natural ability to digest and absorb various nutrients with antioxidant properties. In addition, your system is capable of producing its own natural antioxidant enzymes in order to protect itself from free radicals.

In order to keep antioxidant levels high, many people include antioxidant supplements as part of their diet. This can be extremely helpful. However, despite their many health benefits, scientific studies have shown that artificial supplements aren’t always the answer. If you’re getting what you need from a super-healthy, rounded diet, supplements may be redundant.

However, taking antioxidant supplements can protect your body against:

  • Heart problems
  • Immune system problems
  • Memory problems
  • Mood disorders

What Do Antioxidants Do In Your Body?

In order to understand the function of antioxidants in your body, you need to learn the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that come as a result of the process of metabolizing the oxygen we breathe. These molecules have a harmful effect on your DNA. So, in more precise terms, antioxidants are guards against the free radicals in your body.

The truth is that your body needs a certain level of free radicals to be able to function. However, if the level of free radicals increases, your body might not be able to defend itself against harm. A significant and long-term drop in your immune system exposes you at the risk of severe diseases such as:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Diseases
  • Liver Diseases

Antioxidants: Why Your Body Needs Them

Increasing the intake of antioxidants is important to prevent disease. Keeping your immune system strong can be challenging. Global pollution can compromise your ability to fight off disease. Plus, stress responses tend to drain your adrenal glands and lower your immunity. Finally, the low quality of mass produced, processed food you intake on a daily basis leaves your body with a nutritional deficit.

Because the body just can't keep up with antioxidant production, a good amount of these vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and enzymes must come from one's daily diet. If you’re not getting these important vitamins from the foods that you eat, a supplement can certainly fill the gap.

5 Essential Antioxidants Your Body Can’t Live Without

Researchers have been looking at the connection between antioxidant-rich foods and disease for several decades. Their findings suggest that consuming greater amounts of antioxidant-rich foods might help to protect against diseases. In fact, there is good evidence that eating a diet with lots of vegetables and fruits is healthy and lowers risks of certain diseases. But it isn't clear whether this is because of the antioxidants themselves, something else in the foods, or other factors.

Here’s a basic guide to antioxidants your body absolutely needs. These are some of the most essential antioxidants your body requires for proper and healthy function.

  1. Alpha Lipoic Acid

This antioxidant plays a huge role in the production of energy; it also reduces inflammation. Inflammation is a complex condition, a biological response cellular-level damage.  These irritations are tied to chronic diseases such as: cancer, diabetes and heart disease. In sum, alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is excellent for general use, especially to support healthy blood sugar levels.

  1. Astaxanthin

This antioxidant belongs to the carotenoid family of vitamins. The regular intake of this antioxidant lowers your risk of heart disease by increasing your good cholesterol and reducing oxidation of bad cholesterol. Astaxanthin has also been proven to prevent the process of aging.

  1. Lutein

Lutein is an antioxidant found in eggs and in vegetables with leafs. Doctors recommend lutein for those who have eye diseases. This antioxidant is very efficient if you have poor night vision, since it helps your sight low contrast situations.

  1. Pycnogenol

Pycnogenol, is particularly helpful during menopause. This antioxidant helps relieve menopause symptoms and reduce stress. It is also beneficial for those who experience severe pain during premenstrual period. This antioxidant improves circulation and regulates blood pressure problems.

  1. Resveratrol

Resveratrol is naturally found in red wine, blueberries, grapes, and peanuts. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant and can play an important part in people with heart diseases and other conditions.

A Formula Rich with Antioxidants

What if one formula could provide you with all the antioxidants you need in a day? First, let’s look at the science.

Most clinical studies of antioxidant supplements have found supplemental vitamins to provide limited health benefits. Why? There are several reasons for this:

  1. The effects of large doses of antioxidants used in supplementation studies may be different from those of the smaller amounts of antioxidants consumed in foods.
  2. The antioxidant supplements may not have been given for a long enough time to prevent chronic diseases that develop over decades.
  3. Differences in the chemical composition of antioxidants in supplements may influence their effects.
  4. The relationship between free radicals and health may be more complex than has previously been thought. Under some circumstances, removing free radicals may be undesirable.

However, when taken in the right combination at the right dosage…supplementation can bring enormous benefit. Our own Dr. Sunder – a double board certified physician – has spent years of research in the field of neuroscience, particularly brain plasticity. Helping people who struggled primarily with diverse mental health disorders lead Dr. Sunder to one of the most important discoveries of his career:

He realized that the key to optimizing physical and mental health
lies in giving the brain the essential nutrients it needs.

Summarizing the knowledge of decades of work from his medical practice inspired him to select 25 most essential ingredients that maximize brain performance. As a result, he created the Brain Tune. Not only does it fill the gap for antioxidants, it targets the brain so that you can live at your best!
