What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are compounds that neutralize free radicals in the body. Free radicals are chemically unstable molecules that react with their surroundings, causing damage to e.g. cells and cell membranes. Antioxidants protect cellular DNA, proteins, and lipids against oxidative stress by counteracting free radicals and inhibiting their detrimental impact on cells etc. Antioxidants include vitamins and several other substances in our diet that are known to have an antioxidant effect. Selenium, vitamin C and -E supports the protection of cells against oxidative stress.
Free radical production
Free radicals are part of our biochemistry, we cannot avoid them. They are an inevitable part of life and are produced when we breathe and are even generated by the food we eat. Some factors are known to spawn more free radicals than others: Smoking, air pollution, alcohol, and strenuous exercise cause an increase of free radicals in the body. In such cases, our need for protective antioxidants increases.
Fish oil with good bio-availability
The fish oil in Bio-Sport contains omega-3 as free fatty acids, not triglycerides. Studies show that fish oil as free fatty acids are absorbed better in the body than triglyceride-based fish oil preparations.
Extremely pure fish oil
The fish oil in Bio-Marine Plus is PureMax™-certified which means that it is certified to have a very high level of purity. PureMax™ is one of the world’s leading purification technologies for screening and removal of unwanted particles like pesticides, heavy metals, furans (highly toxic waste particles from industrial burning) etc. A PureMax™ certificate means that the content of several of these compounds is far below the official threshold levels approved for fish and fish oil products.
Consuming large amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids increases the need for antioxidants. This extra requirement is provided with one daily Bio-Sport tablet.
Bio-Sport contains 100 μg selenium in the form of Pharma Nord’s patented, organic and highly bio-available selenium yeast, SelenoPrecise®.
Good sources of essential fatty acids and antioxidants
