Top wholesome antioxidants
You have probably heard about antioxidants and oxidative stress before, but have no clue what they mean. All you know is that the nutritionist recommended you to take fruits, vegetables, and supplements like Zotrim because of their rich source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that prevent and slow down the damaging effect of free radicals on body cells. But what are these free radicals? Let’s get into some chemistry here.
Our body cells are not hollow body building blocks; they consist of molecules which contain matter. When these molecules conjoin with other molecules, they form cells, proteins, DNA and anything that exists in our bodies. The matter is made up of atoms which in turn consist of positively charged electrons at the nucleus and negatively charged electrons around the center. These electrons are in constant motion and at times jump off their atoms. The electrons that go astray are known as free radicals. When these free radicals join with different molecules, their reaction results to damaging those molecules and if not taken care of, the whole molecule gets damaged which in turn destroys the whole cell and gradually anything existing in the body.
Judging from that discussion above, free radicals are potentially harmful. Imagine if your whole body gets damaged by these free radicals. The sad truth is that they cannot be avoided because of the homeostatic processes in the body such as metabolism. This is where antioxidants come in handy. As mentioned above, antioxidants prevent the damaging effects of free radicals. They do this by replacing free radicals that wander off from their original atoms and preventing them from reacting with different molecules. By replacing these electrons, they restore and maintain the stability of the atom. The body needs to be stable to function optimally.
The body synthesizes its antioxidant in small amounts; therefore, it is upon to us to supplement the body with antioxidants. Zotrim, a herbal product, consists of ingredients whose primary components are antioxidants. These components are obtained naturally from plants, and their effectivity categorizes them as the best natural antioxidants. Zotrim has a reputation for producing nothing but the best and these antioxidants include;
Yerba mate leaf extract
Yerba mate leaf extract has a higher percentage of antioxidants than any other extract including green tea. Metabolism is the body’s most important process; almost all chemical responses evoke a metabolic activity. The antioxidant effect of yerba mate is proved in patients with diabetes. Diabetic people suffer from insulin resistance whereby the glucose generated from food is poorly utilized by the body leading to an accumulation of sugar in the blood. Where the body cannot use glucose efficiently, the metabolic process is significantly hampered. Antioxidants in yerba mate work on the insulin sensitivity and help the body cells absorb more glucose to enhance metabolism.
Damiana leaf extract
The antioxidant properties of Damiana leaf extract are revealed in their efforts to fight the oxidative stress caused by the free radicals. As mentioned above, free radicals can be very damaging, and if left unchecked, inflammation diseases are unavoidable due to low metabolism. Damiana leaf extract reduces the free radicals and neutralizes their toxicity on cells and metabolic enzymatic responses as well.
Vitamin B3 and B6
The involvement of these vitamins in the action of antioxidants is indirect. Though they are not antioxidants in nature, these vitamins stimulate the secretion of melatonin hormone which has high antioxidant properties. Melatonin stimulates the oxidation of fatty acids in the adipose tissues leading to the generation of glucose which enhances metabolism further.
Did you know that just a pill or a drink of Zotrim could provide antioxidants double the contents in your plate of fruits and veggies? Now you know. If you are watching your weight, Zotrim is the best place to start with. Nothing makes weight loss effective like an enhanced metabolism. Only Zotrim will make this happen for you.
