Herbal Antioxidants is a 100% vegan Food supplement that is intended to supply real antioxidant nutrients needed to maintain and support optimal health and protection from free radicals.
Herbal Antioxidants is a 100% vegan Food supplement that is intended to supply real antioxidant nutrients needed to maintain and support optimal health and protection from free radicals. Each of the antioxidant nutrients are 100% whole food and synergistically protect against a wide range of free radicals. Antioxidants are believed to help address the effects of aging, support healthy brain tissue, maintain capillary integrity, restore collagen strength, support health skin, and maintain a healthy cardiovascular system.
Carotenoids like alpha- and beta- carotene function as antioxidants. Herbal Antioxidant is a Food and contains betacarotene within carrots and tumeric, thus it includes multiple carotenoids, unlike isolated betacarotene that is in many antioxidant formulas.
Carrots also contain “xanthophyll, a very powerful anticancer phytochemical” . Eleuthro Root is an adaptagen, which means that it helps the body deal with various forms of stress . Ginger Root has constituents with antioxidant effects and can improve peripheral circulation .
Ginger Root functions as an antioxidant and has antiglycation effects according to at least one study involving diabetic patients .
Ginkgo Leaf contains about 40 different bioflavonoids (including proanthocyanidins and quercetin) that “act as free radical scavengers” . “Cerebral insufficiency many cause anxiety and stress, memory, concentration, and mood impairment, and hearing disorders, all of which may benefit from ginkgo therapy” .
Milk Thistle Seed contains silymarin, which is a polyphenolic antioxidant flavonoid ; it has been studied for its role in supporting a health liver .
Rosemary Leaf contains antioxidants  and can “increase detoxification of carcinogens” in certain instances . Schisandra Fruit “has pronounced liver protective effects”  and strong antioxidant activity . Superoxide Dismutase (S.O.D.) is naturally found in at least two of the Foods in Herbal Antioxidant. S.O.D. “is one of the most important enzymes that functions as a cellular antioxidant…The absence of this enzyme is lethal” . Turmeric Root contains curcuminoids which have antioxidant and cancer-inhibiting properties .
One study proved that our Food vitamin E has 12 micro moles per gram T.E. (Trolox equivalents) of lipophilic ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) . ORAC is essentially a measurement of the ability to quench free radicals (antioxidant ability). That same study proved that our Food vitamin C has 492 micro moles per gram T.E. (Trolox equivalents) of hydrophilic ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) —while blueberries (one of the highest ORAC sources ) only had 195 micro moles per gram T.E. —thus our Food vitamin C has 2.52 times the ORAC ability of blueberries. Vitamin C containing food has over 15.6 times the ORAC of isolated ascorbic acid –actually, there are doubts that isolated ascorbic acid has any significant antioxidant effects in humans . Food C Complex is clearly superior for any interested in ORAC—which should include everyone!
Although vitamin C, “can readily donate electrons to quench a variety of reactive free radical and oxidative species and is easily returned to its reduced state”, simply taking vitamin C with two or three different antioxidants is not enough. All free radical and oxidative substances do not get neutralized by all antioxidants. For example, “The antioxidant function of vitamin E cannot be fulfilled by just any antioxidant” . Natural RRR-alpha-tocopherol, which is found in Food, has 1.7 – 4.0 times the free radical scavenging strength of the other tocopherols . Not only is Food selenium better than the selenium salts, it also seems to reduce toxicity associated with cisplatin chemotherapy  (selenium is also “a necessary mineral for the production of antioxidants in the body” )! Herbal Antioxidant’s other antioxidants offer unique benefits which have not been synthetically duplicated.
Thus, for true antioxidant protection, there is no better a choice than Herbal Antioxidant, the Food antioxidant!

Some of these studies (or citations) may not conform to peer review standards, therefore, the results are not conclusive. Professionals can, and often do, come to different conclusions when reviewing scientific data. None of these statements have been reviewed by the FDA. All products by Doctors’ Research, Inc. are nutritional and are not intended for the treatment or prevention of any medical condition.
It is well understood by nutrition researchers that we, as humans, should derive nutrition from food. It is our goal at Food Research to provide the best, scientifically researched, natural food supplements which meet the needs of those who live in our “modern” society.
Dr. Fauci takes isolated vitamin D and synthetic vitamin C By Dr. Robert Thiel Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute
For decades the ‘natural’ health industry has been touting thousands of vitamin supplements. The truth is that most vitamins in supplements are made or processed with petroleum derivatives or hydrogenated sugars. Even though they are often called natural, most non-food vitamins are isolated substances which are crystalline in structure.
Contains naturally occurring carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), superoxide dismutase, and truly organic bioflavonoids as found in enzymatically processed Saccharomyces cerevisiae,mixed citrus fruits, carrots, soy, and the individually listed herbal foods. Unlike many so-called “antioxidant” formulas, Food Herbal Antioxidantcontains no synthetic USP nutrients, but only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates (its betacarotene is in a carrot food complex, unlike the unnatural isolate in most other formulas).
Numerous university studies have concluded that supplements containing food nutrients are better than USP isolates. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTILIZATION of vitamins and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has concluded that food vitamins are superior synthetic/USP vitamins.
