Oxidation is a fundamental problem of Hemochromatosis and a major reason why individuals develop health concerns over time. One consequence of high iron is a chronic state of oxidative stress in the cells. Over time, this oxidative stress can contribute to a number of problems, including:
Fortunately, clinical research has demonstrated the value and health benefits of specific antioxidants for Hemochromatosis!
Each ingredient supports the antioxidant functions of the body with a special affinity for to supporting liver health, which is the organ most vulnerable to oxidative damage from iron overload. Additionally, the remedies in Antioxidant Supreme have been shown to help block the absorption of dietary iron and to even lower ferritin!
Green Tea, Milk Thistle, and Taurine certainly make for a promising combination of nutrients to benefit Hemochromatosis, and that’s why they form the centerpiece of Antioxidant Supreme.
Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) is a well-known herbal remedy possessing a wide array of powerful health benefits. There are many nutritive plant compounds in Green Tea, most notably:
EGCG has strong antioxidant properties and is the subject of much research into the medicinal benefits of Green Tea.
Quite a number of scientific studies have noted Green Tea’s ability to bind iron. Benefits have also been demonstrated for liver, heart, and brain function, largely based upon the powerful antioxidant capacity of Green Tea. Researchers have remarked upon Green Tea’s role in addressing iron overload:
“Green tea (GT) shows many pharmacological effects, particularly antioxidative and iron-chelating capacities. Green tea is a bifunctional natural product that could be relevant for management of iron overload and oxidative stress.” - Hemoglobin. 2006;30(2):311-327.
Milk Thistle (Silybum Marianum) is a favorite amongst herbalists for its strong hepatoprotective properties that support liver function and protect the body against toxins.
Powerful polyphenols found in Milk Thistle include Silymarin and Silybin, and these flavonoid compounds have been shown to benefit liver function and improve health. In particular, Silybin has been investigated in clinical research involving people with Hemochromatosis.
Specifically, Milk Thistle has been demonstrated to reduce iron absorption (which is exactly what we need!):
“In conclusion, silybin has the potential to reduce iron absorption, and this deserves further investigation, as silybin could be an adjunct in the treatment of haemochromatosis.” - Eur J Clin Nutr. 2010 Oct;64(10):1239-41.
Furthermore, another exciting benefit is Milk Thistle may help to reduce Ferritin:
“There was a significant decrease in serum ferritin from baseline to end of treatment… 78% of subjects had a decrease in serum ferritin level.” - J. Clin. Gastroenterol. 2008;42(8):937-944.
Taurine is an amino acid that possesses potent antioxidant properties that helps reduce the damage of free radicals and improve health. Because excess iron can produce significant oxidative stress and damage, a significant body of clinical research has studied Taurine’s potential therapeutic role in Hemochromatosis.
In particular, Taurine has been shown to:
All in all, the science on the benefits of Taurine for Hemochromatosis is very promising!
“These results indicate that taurine reduces iron-induced hepatic oxidative stress, preserves liver function and inhibits hepatocyte apoptosis. Therefore, taurine may be a potential therapeutic drug to reduce liver damage caused by iron overload.” - Mol Med Rep. 2014 Nov;10(5):2255-62.
In addition to these three key nutrients, Antioxidant Supreme also features three other supportive nutrients in Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), Selenium, and N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC). ALA, Selenium, and NAC possess strong antioxidant properties on their own and help to regenerate the body’s natural antioxidant stores.
All together, you can see why Antioxidant Supreme is a first-of-its-kind remedy for Hemochromatosis.
