Daily Protector™ is a combination of many of the finest fruit and vegetable extracts in the world, along with other cofactor nutrients that facilitate antioxidant function.
Complete Antioxidant Supplement
Fruits and vegetables contain a variety of health promoting compounds, many acting as powerful antioxidants that quench free radicals, support immunity, and generally protect the human body. Dietary antioxidants are required for optimal cellular health. Daily Protector™ is a combination of many of the finest fruit and vegetable extracts in the world, along with other cofactor nutrients that facilitate antioxidant function. Supplemental fruit and vegetable extracts are oftentimes more absorbable than foods, since they are in an easy to absorb form (free of plant fibers requiring digestion) and can be concentrated for health supporting compounds.*
There are many different kinds of free radicals requiring different antioxidants to keep them in check. Common antioxidants like vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E work synergistically with one another and other antioxidants to form a powerful network of health support, greater than any one antioxidant working alone. Daily Protector™ provides a comprehensive array of nutrients with antioxidant activity. NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) helps make glutathione inside cells, which is the backbone of the cellular antioxidant defense system. Other antioxidants like A, C, and E work synergistically to help maintain cellular glutathione levels. Many antioxidant enzyme systems in the body require minerals in order to function properly. Key minerals include selenium, manganese, zinc, and copper, all in Daily Protector.*
Antioxidants for the Immune System
The immune system requires antioxidants for normal and healthy function. Antioxidants are used to protect cells, boost and sustain immune cell performance, and support healthy immune system communication. Various nutrients in Daily Protector™ offer specific types of immune support. For example, NAC and carotenes are known to boost the production of SIgA (secretory immunoglobulin A), the main immune soldier that patrols the mucous membranes of the body (sinuses, mouth, GI tract, lungs, and vaginal area).*
Carotenes are brightly colored fat-soluble pigments that occur naturally in plants, they are potent antioxidants. The three main carotenes are alpha and beta carotene (carrots, squash, yams, sweet potatoes, mangos and peaches), lycopene (tomatoes, red grapefruit, water-melon and papaya) and lutein (kale, spinach & melon). Following consumption, carotenes enter the circulation and slowly accumulate in body tissue over time, support optimal cellular health.*
Daily Protector™ provides alpha and beta carotene from dunaliella salinas (a sea algae), which includes very unique carotenes like cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin. Carotenes are highly protective for female health.*
Lycopene is excellent for deactivating the singlet oxygen free radical, the type of free radical produced when ionizing radiation of the sun hits the skin. It is well known that beta carotene and lycopene are in high concentration in the skin. Lycopene in the skin has been shown to reduce UV induced free radicals by up to 40 percent. Lycopene is widely recognized as a nutrient that supports male health.*
Antioxidants for Eye Health
Light entering the eye may generate free radicals. Eye health requires adequate antioxidants to prevent free radical damage, the normal defense system of the eye for maintaining health. It has been discovered that lutein and zeaxanthin are major components of the macular pigment of the retina. These nutrients are potent antioxidants. A dose of 20 mg of lutein per day has been found to be highly supportive of eye health and vision, especially when taken in combination with other antioxidants.*
Daily Protector™ also contains a standardized concentrate of bilberry (the British blueberry or huckleberry), a rich source of anthocyanodins (25% concentrate), a special class of bioflavonoids supportive of eye health and vision. This nutrient gained notoriety in WWII when British fighter pilots used bread covered with bilberry preserves to enhance their night vision before flying missions.*
Bilberry has demonstrated in numerous studies the ability to protect capillary structures, enhancing their strength and supporting their integrity.* This nutrient has proven useful in helping veins and easy bruising. It has been shown to help the microcirculation, maintain more optimal function, supporting healthy circulation.* For example, smoking, exposure to toxins, and stress reduces the microcirculation to the skin. Since less blood is getting there, so are less oxygen and nutrients leading to increased rate of skin aging. Bilberry helps promote healthy circulation.*
Vitamin C, E, Bioflavonoids
Vitamin C is the most important water-soluble antioxidant, capable of neutralizing many types of free radicals.* Vitamin C is required for proper immune system function as well as collagen synthesis.*
Humans are the only mammal that does not synthesize vitamin C from glucose, which is believed to be the result of an inappropriate gene mutation. Under stress all other mammals produce considerable vitamin C, leading many researchers to suggest higher doses of vitamin C for optimal health, especially to compensate for stress.*
Vitamin C works synergistically with bioflavonoids to support capillary health. Daily Protector includes bioflavonoids from bilberry and grapes. Grape extracts are excellent antioxidants in and of themselves, contributing to this synergistic antioxidant formulation. As vitamin C is used to quench free radicals it is “recycled” back to an antioxidant by various antioxidant enzymes. In turn, Vitamin C helps to “recycle” vitamin E and sustain cellular levels of glutathione.*
Some individuals may benefit from higher intake of vitamin C (2,000 mg to 5,000 mg per day). This may be helpful to offset stress, cut down sweet cravings, enhance collagen synthesis, help resolve mild constipation, or support immunity. When taking extra vitamin C it is highly recommended to have a core variety of antioxidants as a base, as provided by Daily Protector.*
In multiple vitamins and antioxidant formulations, many companies use cheap synthetic esters that are not in a natural form and have little antioxidant activity. Wellness Resources Daily Energy Multiple Vitamin™ uses the highest quality natural water-soluble form of vitamin E which enables fast replenishment of cells lacking vitamin E. Daily Protector, uses RRR-alpha-tocopheryl-acetate, the highest quality natural form of vitamin E available as a powder. In softgel capsules such as Leptinal the tocotrienol form of vitamin E is used, which takes vitamin E supplementation to a whole new level. Vitamin E has been shown to protect nerves and is needed for a healthy immune response, especially in older individuals.*
Daily Protector™ is a sophisticated and comprehensive antioxidant supplement. It contains truly useful amounts of all main antioxidant nutrients, and all main antioxidant cofactors. Antioxidants are the health reserves for all cells in the human body, required for optimal cellular health. Since there are many different types of free radicals and nature has provided many different types of antioxidant nutrients, it only makes sense to supplement with a synergistic array of the finest quality fruit, vegetable, and nutrient antioxidant compounds available.*
