AOC - Reflex Nutrition
Reflex Nutrition Anti-Oxidant Collection
Reflex Nutrition's AOC is a blend of several antioxidants including
- Tomato Extract (Lycopene), ALA, Bilbery Extract, Pine Bark Extract, Grape
Seed Extract, Green Tea Extract. As far as anti-oxidant collections go there's
a good array of powerful anti-oxidants that are offered in good mg ammounts.
On appearance Reflex's AOC looks expensive for a months supply. However, considering
the ingredients and the mg quantity's you'd look to pay a great deal more if
purchasing the ingredients separately. Plus you've then got the added hassle
of taking more capsules.
Who should take anti-oxidant supplements and what are they? It must be remembered
that a healthy balanced diet should provide all your key nutrients - including
vitamins and minerals. Anti-Oxidants are important whatever your goal - weight
loss, recovery, protection - as "antioxidant" refers to the activity
possessed by numerous vitamins, minerals and other phytochemicals (plant chemicals)
to serve as protection against the damaging effects of highly reactive molecules
known as free radicals. Free radicals have the ability to react (chemically)
with, and damage, many structures in the body. Free radical reactions and oxidative
damage have been linked to many of the diseases of aging such as heart disease

What is aoc ?
aoc is one of the most advanced antioxidant products available in the world
today. It contains a wide variety of unique, patented, high strength and extensively
Why do I need antioxidants?
Antioxidants 'neutralize', or render harmless, oxygen free radical molecules.
Free radicals are highly reactive toxic by-products of bio-chemical reactions
that occur both as a part of normal cell metabolism and when the body is exposed
to damaging environmental influences such as excessive UV rays from sunlight,
cigarette smoke and toxins in our food, air and water. The oxidative damage
caused by free radicals has been linked to the onset of many degenerative diseases
such as cancer, atherosclerosis, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration
as well as premature ageing. Antioxidants therefore play a vital role in our
health and well being.
Which anti oxidants are included in aoc ?
aoc contains a wide variety of fruit, vegetable and algae based antioxidants
which include; astaxanthin, luetein, zeaxanthin, cantaxanthin, beta-carotene,
lycopene, tocopherols, phytoene, phytofluene, phytosterols, anthocyanosides,
proanthocyanidins, polyphenols, catechins and thiotic acid.
This product contains the following ingredients:
Astaxanthin occurs naturally in fish, shellfish and certain plants. The antioxidative
properties of astaxanthin are very powerful. Trials comparing astaxanthin with
other fat soluble antioxidants such as Vitamin E has shown it to be 550 times
more effective than Vitamin E.
Lyc-O-Mato® (natural Lycopene)
Scientific research has established that carotenoids, like lycopene, beta-carotene,
phytoene, phytofluene and other tomato phytonutrients found in Lyc-O-Mato®
are synergistic to each other and play a vital role in helping to maintain good
health. Clinical research clearly indicates that Lyc-O-Mato® helps to support
prostate and heart health and helps to protect our skin from sun damage.
Bilberry Extract (anthocyanosides)
Extracts like bilberry which contain anthocyanosides have been scientifically
shown to possess strong antioxidant properties which may help to stabilize collagen
fibres and promote collagen biosynthesis.
Pine Bark and Grapseed Extracts (Proanthocyanidins)
Proanthocyanidins antioxidant capabilities are 20 times more powerful than vitamin
C and 50 times more potent than vitamin E. The proanthocyanidins found in pine
bark and grape seed extracts may work directly to help strengthen blood vessels
and improve the delivery of oxygen to the cells. Proanthocyanidins are one of
the most commonly used ingredients in orally administered cosmetics to help
in the prevention of wrinkles.
Green Tea Extract (polyphenols & catechins)
Derived from Chinese green tea leaf, this special extract contains 95% polyphenols
of which 70% are catechins and 30% epigallocatechin (egcg). The antioxidant
strength of green tea is continually the focus of intense scientific research,
especially with regard to weight loss and cancer.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (thiotic acid)
Alpha Lipoic acid dissolves in both water and fat, it is k nown as the "universal
antioxidant" which is able to deactivate more free-radical cells than most
antioxidants, the majority of which tend to dissolve in either fat or water,
but not both. Alpha Lipoic Acid can reach tissues composed mainly of fat, such
as the nervous system, as well as those made mainly of water, such as the heart
and therefore protect both lipoproteins and membranes. No other natural anti-oxidant
can do this.
