Traditionally extracted from the inner bark of certain European pine trees and contains powerful antioxidant compounds to fight free radicals.
Still don’t understand what the terms antioxdants and free radicals mean? Free radicals, also called oxidants, atoms with an unpaired electron. They are desperately in search of a mate and furiously bump into other atoms trying to find another electron to pair up with. Free radicals are produced as a result of exposure to ultraviolet radiation, pollution and environmental toxins such as smoke, eating acidic foods like meat, caffeine, sugar on top of lack of exercise, illness and stress.
Their chief danger comes from the damage free radicals can do when they react with DNA or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs, and the end result can be a weakened immune system. That’s where antioxidants come to the rescue and why we all don’t just keel over and die from the multiple free radical attacks our cells get every day.
Antioxidants are molecules that interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction they cause before vital molecules are damaged. Antioxidants found in brightly colored fruits and veggies, and provided by pine bark extract, diminish the destructive power of free radicals. Antioxidants are also thought to have a role in slowing the aging process and helping prevent health issues. A few reasons why Dr. Laubscher included Pine Bark Extract in THE SUPER ELIXIR:
