The Master Antioxidant

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) has been considered the master antioxidant. It is unique in that, unlike any other antioxidant, ALA is both fat and water soluble; thereby allowing it to operate in all environments in the body.

ALA inhibits the "hydroxyl radical." The hydroxyl radical is considered to be the most damaging of the free radicals due to its ability to initiate heart disease.

Adding to the myriad of benefits, ALA regenerates (through redox cycling) other antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E, thus helping to prevent a deficiency in any one of these vital nutrients.

ALA also maintains and even increases our bodies' own antioxidant: glutathione. Glutathione's best attribute is its ability to protect us from cancer. Glutathione is the chief detoxifier for the human body. Through a process known as "conjugation" it attaches to deadly chemicals and escorts them out of the body and into the toilet.

No other antioxidant confers so many benefits to users. The best natural sources of ALA are spinach, broccoli, and beef.

This is not medical advice. Medical diagnosis and treatment is constrained by law to be the monopoly of state licensed practitioners.

His experience in drug design and synthesis afforded him a wealth of knowledge in the areas of natural medicine and therapeutic nutrition. He is not a doctor. In fact, he has never even read Gray's Anatomy.

Your own cows, I'm turning green.



I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain of my own piece of land shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight by the hoofs of my own livestock.

I have a dream to own enough land for deer roam my acreage, to ride dirt bikes and horses, go trout fishing, grow vegetables and raise at least a pair of cows & a pair sheep, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together :smile:

It's been more of a worry this year with the drought. We've fed hay on and off this summer and kept a close watch on them.
Here is some of my girls, and one bull. This was their Christmas dinner. We have 43 all together.

I thought Glutathione was the master anti-oxidant.
