ACF228 (Aging Control Formula) - 30 capsules
ACF228 - winning the war against free radicals
The ongoing conflict between free radicals and antioxidants becomes more critical as we age. Free radicals are a consequence of the natural aerobic cellular respiration which occurs within our cells’ mitochondria.
ACF228 helps to increase immune system resilience as it works as a free radical scavenger to quench free radicals and their bi-products, so helping with immune system defences.
The human body consumes many pounds of oxygen each day as we breathe. These pounds are burned in our cells’ energy factories - the mitochondria.
But this process is only 94 to 96% efficient. The remaining oxygen is converted into free radicals – called ‘superoxides’. This continues every day of our lives, as more free radicals and their bi-products build-up over time.
A vital support for these natural defenses is ACF228, which was designed by Dr. Richard Lippman.
ACF228 is a blend of ‘scavengers’, which work together to support your body’s natural defenses.
The formula contains N-acetyl cysteine, which tackles the most common radical superoxide ‘anion’ (a negative Ion) radical through a process known as ‘quenching’.
Nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) is also in the mix, helping stop fatty acids (essential building blocks of all cells) from becoming radicalized.
A secondary line of defense in ACF228 is butylhydroxytoluene (BHT), which deals with the most damaging of all radicals, hydroxyl. Hydroxyl only has a nano-second half-life, so it cannot be “quenched” by ordinary antioxidant vitamins or cellular enzymes.
Selenium is another second-tier radical scavenger in the formula, renowned for helping recharge your cells’ antioxidant capabilities and binding to the toxic metal mercury.
ACF228 also contains catalase which is critical to deactivating and converting hydrogen peroxide. Insufficient catalase increases hydroxyl.
L-Carnosine, a premier antiglycator helping counter the hardening of the eye lens and loss of skin and artery elasticity, and Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA), the premier extractor of heavy metals, are also key ingredients in the ACF228 formula.
The formula contains Vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid – methylation vitamins.
