CL 05 Redox System & Secondary Plant Substances

Antioxidants such as water-soluble vitamin C and fat-soluble vitamin E help to protect the body's cells from oxidative stress. Vitamin C also helps to regenerate the reduced form of vitamin E and make it functional again. Oxidative stress can be triggered by environmental influences such as air pollution and UV radiation, but also by competitive sport. This phenomenon can also be observed in the plant world. Bananas, for example, often show brown spots after just a few days of storage. This is a typical sign of oxidative stress. Plants protect themselves from predators and environmental influences with their secondary plant substances - so-called polyphenols. In the plant world, these polyphenols are able to trap aggressive oxygen radicals. The human organism, on the other hand, cannot produce polyphenols. Here you will find our products from category 01 of the Principle Causa Logica. All information on the exact ingredients and their effects can be found on the respective product pages.
