All of our bodies need to have the antioxidants.
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 21, 2009
Brunswick Laboratories, the leader in antioxidant testing of foods and supplements, has determined that each Vindure 900 tablet from Vinomis Laboratories has an ORAC rating of 19,638, over six times times the USDA recommended daily consumption of at least 3000 ORAC units. A copy of the Brunswick report is posted on the Vinomis website.
Antioxidants are chemicals which "scavenge" free oxygen radicals from the body, preventing cell damage from oxidation. Health problems such as heart disease, macular degeneration, strokes, Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer etc. are all contributed to by oxidative damage from free radicals. According to Dr. Bryan Donohue, chief of cardiology at UPMC, "Our bodies produce free oxygen radicals as a natural by-product of energy production in cells. However, as we age, the mechanisms for neutralizing them decrease. The excess free radicals cause cellular damage, and by reacting with cholesterol in the bloodstream, form deposits that can clog arteries."
According to Jeff Bost PAC, author of "Fish Oils - The Natural Anti-Inflammatory," and Clinical Instructor in Neurological Surgery at UPMC, "the increasing level of environmental toxins, and a long-term decline in the antioxidants found in our foods, make antioxidant supplements a vital component of good health."
Dr. Mehmet Oz, on the "Oprah" website, demonstrates antioxidant power by comparing apples to apples--one half of an apple is sprinkled with lemon juice and the other is not. While the lemony half remains new and crisp-looking, the untreated half becomes brown and shriveled because of exposure to oxygen, also called oxidation. "The same thing happens to our skin, to our heart, to our eyes," Dr. Oz says. "All of our bodies need to have the antioxidants."
The antioxidant power of Vindure comes from a hefty dose of its three primary ingredients: over 400mg of 98% pure trans-Resveratrol, 100mg of pure Quercetin, and 400mg of red wine grape extract containing over 90% polyphenols. According to Mark Juliano, Vinomis CEO, "The Resveratrol, Quercetin, and other Polyphenols in Vindure provide a double benefit - they are super-powerful antioxidants, as well as SIRT gene activators."
In 2003, a team of scientists at Harvard Medical School discovered that 19 polyphenols, of which 17 are found in red wine grapes, activate the SIRT genes, causing them to produce enzymes call Sirtuins that are a critical component in slowing down the aging process. Resveratrol was found to be the number one activator of these genes. Every 100mg of pure Resveratrol has the added benefit of adding over 3000 ORAC units of antioxidants, to our diet.
Antioxidants have received a lot of attention from promoters of "super-fruit" products, containing Acai, Blueberry, Mangosteen, Noni, and Pomegranate. But it turns out that each Vindure tablet, containing over 860mg of pure polyphenols including 400mg of whole Bordeaux grape extract, exceeds the antioxidant power found in an average serving of ANY of the so-called "superfruits."
The relationship between antioxidants and various health issues has been well established. According to the National Cancer Institute, "Considerable laboratory evidence from chemical, cell culture, and animal studies indicates that antioxidants may slow or possibly prevent the development of cancer." The American Academy of Family Physicians recommends supplementation with antioxidants (except beta carotene) to prevent coronary heart disease, reporting that, "… studies find lower coronary heart disease morbidity and mortality in persons who consume larger quantities of antioxidants in foods or supplements."
Vinomis Laboratories develops and distributes nutraceutical products based upon new science from an exclusive Harvard Medical School license. Their products are formulated to provide the benefits of red wine polyphenols, including Resveratrol and Quercetin, in the highest quality products.
