Shield Yourself With Antioxidant

Health has been our first concern throughout our life. It feels so uncomfortable when we got sick, or affected by illness or such. There are many reasons why people can easily get sick such as not eating regularly, not consume nutritious food, not resting enough, or not have good body resistant, not in a healthy environment that make us easily prone to viruses, free radicals, or oxidant that can attack the immune system of our body. Yeah, many factors. And of course, sick is suck. We have to do something to decrease the possibility of ourself to get sick. One of the way is, with antioxidant. 

But, what's that antioxidant? Let me holler at you. Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals. Health problems such as heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes, cancer etc are all contributed by oxidative damage. Antioxidants may also enhance immune defense and therefore lower the risk of cancer and infection.

I would like to introduce you with Oxis. Well, I don't know clearly further about Oxis but I know that they are the premiere provider for the potent antioxidant, Ergothioneine and through their patented synthetic manufacturing process remains the only significant commercial source of pure l-ergothioneine worldwide.  OXIS International, Inc. is engaged in the research, development and sale of products that counteract the harmful effects of “oxidative stress.” Oxidative stress refers to the situations in which the body’s antioxidant and other defensive abilities to combat free radicals (a.k.a highly reactive species of oxygen and nitrogen) are overwhelmed and one’s normal healthy balance is either lost or severely compromised.

So, Oxis product is called Ergothioneine, the super antioxidant for nutraceutical, cosmeceutical and therapeutics.  Kind of anti aging, glutathione, antioxidant for penny stocks and free radical. You can visit for further info about them, follow Oxis on Twitter, or join Oxis on facebook
