Free radicals -
Body’s Worst Enemy
Free-radicals are formed naturally in the body. They are also
formed, in ever increasing numbers, outside the body i.e. pollution,
radiation, cigarette smoke, motor vehicle emissions, and many other
processes. Free-radicals are atoms or molecules with an odd
(unpaired) number of electrons that makes them unstable and highly
reactive. Once formed, these highly reactive radicals can start a
chain reaction called oxidation, which happens all the time in our
bodies attacking constantly our 63 trillion cells.
Overall, free-radicals have been implicated in the
development of at least 50
diseases! A partial list includes
arthritis and other
kidney disease, heart disease, cataracts, inflammatory bowel
disease, colitis, lung dysfunction, pancreatitis, drug reactions,
skin lesions, and aging, to mention a few. And
cancer is the most
widespread disease associated with free-radical damage.
Fortunately, the body is able to curb free radical damage by
producing antioxidant molecules and enzymes. However, the body's
arsenal of antioxidants
appears to be insufficient in today’s polluted and toxic
According to the
USDA, the recommended daily
intake is 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC units, (Oxygen Radical
Absorbance Capacity. It is the actual measure of the antioxidant
power of a food product or nutrient. The higher the ORAC value the
greater the antioxidant capacity.), which is enough to cause a
measurable increase in antioxidant status in the human body.
However, studies show that the
average person gets only
about 1,200 ORAC units per day… less than half of the minimum
amount needed for a protective benefit.
This results in the increase of many of the diseases we associate
with aging, including coronary heart disease, cancer, skin damage,
Alzheimer's disease, strokes, and rheumatoid arthritis due to
less scientific way to explain this is by picturing your body as
your house and the free-radicals as fire. If your house is burning,
you want to have over 35 firefighters putting out the fire (which is
the amount of antioxidants provided by Intra and Nutria), instead of
one or two, which could be pictured as Vitamin C and/or Vitamin A.
Intra & Nutria to Fight Free Radicals
about Combining Antioxidants
High doses of Single
antioxidants are never a good idea – a good understanding of
antioxidants and how they work is essential in grasping this
concept. Antioxidants work best in a combination. This is because
when one antioxidant neutralizes a free-radical, in some cases the
antioxidant itself then
becomes a free-radical – becoming a “prooxidant.” Without another
antioxidant to neutralize this newly formed pro-oxidant, it can now
go around causing as much damage as the initial free-radical.
That is why Nutria
was formulated to be a balanced antioxidant supplement that
incorporates a wide range of antioxidants from many sources.
When combined with Intra,
there are over 40 sources of
antioxidants that work together to ensure that free-radicals
are effectively neutralized.

Cauliflower is in the same family as
broccoli and cabbage and shares the same cancer fighting abilities as broccoli. Cauliflower contains sulforaphane and isothiocyanate, the two phytonutrients responsible for
its cell protecting abilities.
Beets contain a component called betaine. There is evidence to suggest that beets can assist in maintaining a healthy
liver by removing fat deposits.
