The Free-Radical Theory of Aging
Theories as to how and why we age are everywhere but thanks to the pioneering work of researcher Leonard Hayflick, Ph.D., which has paved the way for the idea that aging is no mysterious event that occurs totally at random. Rather, it is a pre-programmed process that begins at the cellular level. Through his work it became clear that finding ways to reduce or eliminate cell damage could significantly affect the aging process. The free-radical theory—proposed by Denham Harman, M.D., Ph.D., at the University of Nebraska back in the mid-1950s and is now perhaps the most universally accepted.
Free-radical theory in a nutshell
Free radicals are oxygen molecules that have lost an electron in interactions with other molecules. As a result of this these molecules are extremely unstable, or reactive. In their quest to heal/repair themselves, free radicals steal electrons from other healthy molecules this creates more free radicals in the process, damaging cell components. Although free radicals are an entirely natural by-product of normal bodily function, they are also extremely hazardous. Every time free radicals seek to heal/repair themselves, they damage healthy cells. Even worse free radicals aren’t just manufactured by our own bodies. They are also unleashed by many external factors such as sunlight, cigarette smoke, air pollution etc.
Antioxidants to the Rescue
Happily, our body has allies in its continuing fight against free-radical damage. Certain nutrients called antioxidants a group that includes certain vitamins, amino acids, and other natural substances can slow down, stop or even reverse free-radical damage.
Time Natural Resveratrol Pro has a comprehensive blend of polyphenols, including natural Trans-Resveratrol and proanthocyanins (OPC’s from pine bark), plus catechins (green tea extract) for powerful cardiovascular protection.
Formula provides concentrated levels of polyphenols and trans-resveratrol from red grape skin and the root of the Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum) plant.
Resveratrol supports the body’s antioxidant system and when combined with other polyphenols, is known for its anti-aging effects, as well as for its ability to support healthy cardiovascular function and healthy inflammatory response.
The recommend daily amount of Trans-Resveratrol is 250mg any higher than this and it may inhibit many of its benefits.
Most people are not aware that Trans-Resveratrol is rapidly metabolized and eliminated by the body. To get the maximum benefits from Trans-Resveratrol you need to split the dosage so we have taken the recommended dosage of 250mg and split this between 2 capsules one to be taken in the morning and one in the evening. This also works for the other Super Antioxidants ingredients in our formula allowing your body to receive round the clock benefits of these amazing antioxidants.
