Antioxidants, which are measured by the ORAC Value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) are important in maintaining a healthy body. They do so by helping to eliminate damaging free radicals in the human body. A free radical is an unbalanced molecule that takes an electron from an established stable molecule to satisfy the process needed for tissue repair. In doing this, the free radicals destabilize the once stable molecules, which creates more free radicals in a vicious chain reaction of cellular destruction. A single free radical can cause serious damage to the body’s ability to repair tissues, interrupting the body’s ability to function properly.
The free radicals that destroy the vital cells and tissues of the human body develop due to exposure to various environmental toxins such as tobacco, smoke, alcohol, radiation, chemicals, high-fat diets, excessive amounts of sunlight, strenuous exercise, and environmental pollutants. It is believed that an abundant amount of free radicals in the body can cause a significant shortening of an individual’s life span.
In addition, free radicals cause oxidation in the blood. Excessive oxidation in the bloodstream may be a leading factor linked to many different health complications, such as arterial disease, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney disease, heart disease, cancer and the acceleration of the aging process. Antioxidants, such as ST6 Flower Pollen Extract aid in the elimination free radicals by lowering the high rate of oxidization of healthy cell molecules needed within the body. Thus, antioxidants contained in ST6 Flower Pollen Extract prevent free radicals in the blood from damaging the good cholesterol molecule strands, which block and ultimately prevent the development of diseases, furthermore helping the immune system’s reaction to fight off previous existing diseases.
Antioxidants are found in high amounts in fruits, vegetables, and plant foods such as grains that are high in fiber. They are also found in high amounts within minerals such as: vitamins A, C, and E, beta-carotene, and selenium. An increased daily consumption of foods and supplements such as ST6 Flower Pollen Extracts™ that contain high levels of these vitamins, also brings added health benefits.
ST6 Flower Pollen Extracts have been shown to have a very high ORAC Value surpassing the levels found in bee pollen and many fruits and vegetables. ST6 Flower Pollen Extracts combine over 39 essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients the body needs to fight off and eliminate toxins and free radicals within the body. ST6 pollen is harvested directly from species specific plants and is processed by proprietary technology, which eliminates potential contamination and impurities unlike bee pollen. Besides containing antioxidants to help fight off free radicals, ST6 Flower Pollen Extracts also benefit overall health by increasing energy, supplying vital nutrients to the body’s cells including: essential amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, and enzymes. The extracts also improve the absorption of vitamins, minerals and trace elements from the food consumed on a daily basis, helping to bio-regulate functions such as: immune system defense, lipid metabolism, blood cholesterol levels and the function of the prostate.
ST Flower Extract contains an extract of pollen from a specific variety of species of plants, gathered in the field, and combined in standardized proportions. Being the plant’s male germinative unit, pollen is the bearer of like in the plant kingdom.
Pollen has been known as a food for bees and as a valuable dietary supplement for thousands of years.
