The free radical theory of aging (FRTA) states that organisms age because cells accumulate free radical damage over time. A free radical is any atom or molecule that has a single unpaired electron in an outer shell.
Unpaired electrons cause damage to cells, proteins and DNA. Once free radicals are formed, a chain reaction can occur. The first free radical pulls an electron from a molecule, which destabilizes the molecule and turns it into a free radical. That molecule then takes an electron from another molecule, destabilizing it and tuning it into a free radical. This domino effect can eventually disrupt and damage the whole cell.
Q: What do over 100 human degenerative conditions and diseases, including viruses like the flu, cardiovascular disease and cancer, have in common?
A: Free radicals.
Free radicals are useful at a low level. However, they become elevated to unhealthy levels by air pollution, intense exercise, chronic inflammation and smoking.
Antioxidants improve immune function both increasing it and moderating it to prevent damage from an overactive immune response. For optimal health, free radicals should be balanced with antioxidants.
FullerLifeC60 is one of the most powerful and effective antioxidants known.
We recently put our FullerLifeC60 to the test with an ORAC test Brunswick Labs. (The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) assay is a method that measures the antioxidant capacity of a substance.)
Here is how FullerLifeC60 compares to some commonly known antioxidants:
FullerLifeC60 is 300 times more powerful than Vitamin C and 5 times more powerful than turmeric.
