How do the ingredients in Cataplex E supply antioxidant activity?
Animal and human research studies suggest that increasing the consumption of chemicals with antioxidant activity in the daily diet promotes health.1, 2, 3, 4 Antioxidants are substances that can counteract destabilizing molecules called free radicals that can be generated by the body’s natural processes, such as energy generation or alcohol consumption.5 Free radicals can also be generated by exposure to environmental factors, like air pollution and tobacco smoke.6 While free radicals have a role to play in normal function, limiting their ability to swipe an electron from neighboring molecules is supportive of overall health. Cataplex E contains vitamin E and selenium, which protect lipids from being destabilized by free radicals.7, 8, 9 Selenium is also supportive of selenium-containing enzymes called glutathione peroxidases that help transform some free radicals into harmless water and oxygen molecules.10, 11* Glutathione peroxidase activity has been reported to decrease with age in women.12*
How does Cataplex E support healthy thyroid function?
Selenium is essential for the production of several selenium-dependent enzymes called selenoproteins, a family of proteins that have roles in a variety of cell processes, including immune system function13 and thyroid function.14*
How does Cataplex E support immune system response function?
Both vitamin E15 and selenium16 are important to the immune system response function and support a healthy natural anti-inflammatory response.17*
Whole Food Nutrient Solutions
Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.
Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
