Aptinol is a formula consisting of pinebark extract, grapeseed extract, quercetin and adaptogens. As an antioxidant, Aptinol is more powerful than vitamin C and more powerful than vitamin E. With 320 mg of Super Adaptogene (containing CoQ10, beta 1, 3 glucan, maiteresinol, genestein and squalene) and SOD making it an excellent choice for athletes, those with chronic conditions, and anyone wishing to recover. These adaptogens and proanthenols most importantly help the body recover from stress faster.
Aptinol is truly a unique combination of superior bio flavenoids, proanthanols, enzymes suporting protection of molecular level damage and contains Oligomeric Proanthacyanidins (OPC's). Proanthenol’s anti-inflammatory activity may help relieve inflammatory conditions, including arthritis, allergies, bronchitis and asthma.
Of the many causes of disease (chemicals, radiation, diet, stress etc...) stress is one factor with which we all live and is a primary cause of major disease and chronic conditions affecting hormone levels, cardiovascular disease, stress fractures, osteoporosis, premature aging, ad infinitum. Stress produces free radicals which can precede chronic disease and premature aging.
As time goes on, the ability of the body to clean these up reduces and free radicals become more pronounced. SOD, unlike proanthenols is an enzyme that catalyzes or breaks down these free radical producers. Simply stated, SOD outcompetes damaging reactions of superoxide, thus protecting the cell from superoxide toxicity. Superoxide is one of the main reactive oxygen species in the cell and as such, SOD serves a key antioxidant role.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an energy promoting agent and antioxidant, made by the human body and obtained by our diet, mainly in oily fishes, organ meats and whole grains. It works with other enzymes as a “coenzyme factor.”
