anyone who lives or is exposed to a toxic lifestyle. Free radicals are
reactive substances produced by oxidation that cause oxidative damage to
the cells. Research suggests that free radicals are involved in the
formation of several degenerative diseases associated with aging, including
cancer, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease,
immune dysfunction, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Aging and
increased amounts of oxidative stress cause the body's own defense system
to become less effective against free radical damage. Antioxidants have the
capability of stabilizing free radicals before they can react and cause
harm to cells.

Acai Berry (Euterpe oleraceae) is the fruit of a palm tree native to South
America. When ripe, the berries are dark purple and about the size of a
blueberry. Historically, Brazilians have used acai berries to treat
digestive disorders and skin conditions. The pulp and skin of the acai are
rich in anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and other fatty acids. Studies
have shown that acai has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and apoptotic
(programmed cell death) effects a study published in the Journal of
Agricultural and Food Chemistry, showed extracts of acai berries triggered
apoptosis in up to 86 percent of leukemia cells tested.
(Garcinia magostana) is a plant native to Southeast Asia. Studies reveal
that xanthones from the fruit hulls of mangosteen have antioxidant,
antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. In one study
mangosteen's xanthones significantly inhibited the growth of leukemia
cells. One xanthone in particular, alpha-mangostin, showed complete
inhibition of leukemia cells through the induction of apoptosis (programmed
cell death). Other studies indicate xanthones from mangosteen inhibit the
activities of COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes, prevent oxidative damage of LDL
cholesterol, have cytotoxic effects on liver cancer cells, and are
antiproliferative, antioxidative, and apoptotic against breast cancer
(Lycium barbarum) polysaccharides exhibit anti-tumorigenic, immune
enhancing, and liver-protecting properties. Studies suggest that Goji
polysaccharides have positive effects when used with conventional cancer
treatments. A 1994 study done in China on patients with a variety of
cancers revealed that patients who were given Goji Berry polysaccharides
along with their conventional cancer treatment had a 40.9 percent response
rate to the treatment, while patients who received conventional treatment
without Goji Berry supplement had only a 16.1 percent response rate.
Additionally, the Goji Berry supplemented patients experienced longer
remissions and had a significant increase in natural killer cell activity.
Goji berries contain high levels of Zeaxanthin, a carotenoid necessary for
healthy vision that is present in high amounts in the macula of the human
eye. The Zeaxanthin in Goji berries is naturally esterified zeaxanthin
which has been proven to cause a higher increase in plasma levels than the
non-esterified form contained in many supplements. When Goji berry was
studied against two other Chinese herbs on various measures of antioxidant
activity, it showed the most potent free-radical scavenging effects. The
researchers concluded that out of the three herbs tested, Goji was the best
antioxidant to promote healthy aging.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) contains thousands of phytochemicals
including anthocyanins, ellagic acid derivatives, catechins and
procyanidins, flavonols, fatty acids, and sterols. Human studies show that
pomegranate polyphenols and their metabolites are readily absorbed into
tissues where they offer protection against elements of various diseases.
Pomegranate increases nitric oxide production in the endothelial cells of
the vascular system protecting against cardiovascular disease. Studies show
consumption of the juice benefits patients with carotid artery stenosis,
those with hypertension, and those with coronary heart disease. Pomegranate
has been heavily studied in the treatment of prostate cancer. In one study
when men with aggressive prostate cancer were given pomegranate juice daily
after treatment by surgery or radiation, there were a four-fold prolonged
delay in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) doubling time, and the rate of PSA
rise was reduced by 50% over the course of just one year. Numerous other
studies demonstrate pomegranate to inhibit inflammation, slow cartilage
loss in arthritis, improve sperm health, and increase the overall
antioxidant capacity of the blood.
