THE MORINGA ANTIOXIDANT ASSORTMENT
If you cut an avocado and leave it on the counter and that light green colour turns black. That colour change is oxidation. Oxidized metal we call rust. That is more evidence of oxidation. The negative effects of oxygen can be witnessed throughout the realm of biological interactions and yet it is the most essential element for life. Cells can last no more than four and a half minutes without oxygen as it leads to cellular death however it is essential for the production of energy in mitochondria. Combine this with toxins prevalent in our air, food and water accumulating in our bodies and add to it the further discovery that a great deal of the damage (disease and aging) was being carried out by free radicals (oxidants) in our system. The problem with these positively charged ions is that they are looking for an electron to steal. They search the body seeking an electron indiscriminately, not considering the source, or the potential damage caused, and our immune systems had been overwhelmed in the process of trying to handle this onslaught. This is known as oxidative stress.
So what can be done? We have all heard of anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are substances that are generally ingested and provide electrons to bind with dangerous free radicals and neutralize them in order for the body to dispose of them. Different parts of the body are protected by different antioxidants. Structures containing lipids (fats) are mainly protected by the fat soluble vitamins A and E, whereas the water-soluble vitamin C helps us against free radicals in the blood, body fluids and within cells. If there was a method by which countless negatively charged ions could be delivered into your body (most of us aren’t getting it from our cooked processed food diets anymore) would it not be totally beneficial. In the recent past, everyone was scrambling to find powerful anti-oxidants. The cause of aging, along with most of humanity’s diseases, has been determined to be due, in large part, to actions of free radicals on our body. The trace elements zinc and selenium are essential for our antioxidant enzyme system. Antioxidants, outside of the carotenoids, enter the electron cascade, which means their combined effect is more than the sum of effect of the single components. Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, E and selenium (all present in Moringa oleifera) will release an electron to a free radical and bind it, transforming it into a relatively harmless molecule fit for excretion. Moringa oleifera contains ample amounts of forty-six different antioxidants including Vitamin A and the carotenoids. The Zija proprietary formula contains assorted parts of the Moringa oleifera tree insuring a diverse assortment of bioavailable antioxidants.
