We come across the words antioxidants and free radicals almost daily but do we really know what they are and how they affect us? We are exposed to many sources of oxidative stress from free radicals through ultraviolet light, viruses and diseases that affect the heart, eyes, memory and mood. Antioxidants are essential for maintaining good health in today’s polluted world.
Antioxidants are a select group of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that help protect the body’s cells from free radical damage. The oxygen we breathe helps us metabolize fats, proteins and carbohydrates for energy but it becomes a highly reactive atom when it enters our bodies. It’s also full of pollutants and toxins like cigarette smoke.
Oxygen and its volatile compounds cause a process called oxidation and prompt molecules to lose electrons, turning them into free radicals. These free radicals go on to rob electrons from other molecules, creating more free radicals as they go. Your cells and DNA become damaged, leaving you at risk for various degenerative diseases and premature aging. Antioxidants like those contained in CanPrev’s Antioxidant Network™ help to fight against free radicals.
Antioxidant Network™ is a synergistic combination of antioxidants that provide ongoing protection against free radical damage, keeping oxidative stress at bay. They become “electron donors” to unstable free radicals, making them complete cells again.
Antioxidant Network™ contains N-Acetylcysteine, a precursor to the formation of Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant recycler. It also contains mixed tocopherols, a family of vitamin E compounds that act as fat-soluble antioxidants, along with Coenzyme Q10, DL-Alpha lipoic acid, green tea and zinc to provide a quick response to the first signs of free radical activity, protecting your cells from oxidative damage.
Curcumin is a phytochemical derived from the spice turmeric. For thousands of years, turmeric has been one of the most commonly prescribed Ayurvedic remedies to relieve joint-related inflammation. Curcuminoids in turmeric slow the enzymes that cause inflammation and give the spice it’s bright yellow colour.
Curcuminoids are also responsible for turmeric’s powerful antioxidant capabilities. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals (damaged rogue cells that debilitate more cells as they circulate) that go on to prompt the start of aging and disease in the body.
Human clinical trials have shown that the body’s absorption rate of curcumin when taken orally is low. To compensate, phosphatidylcholine from naturally-sourced lecithin and bromelain have been added to the formula to enhance absorption and support curcumin’s anti-inflammatory properties.

CanPrev Adult Multi 60 ct
Basic nutritional needs are covered by the food you eat, but taking a premium vitamin and mineral supplement is like having an extra insurance policy for your diet and immune protection.
Our health would be compromised without the necessary vitamins and minerals. They keep our cells strong and our organs functioning properly, help fight infection, regulate metabolism, help form bone and tissue and convert fat and carbohydrates into energy. Taking antibiotic, cardiac, diabetic, diuretic and gastrointestinal medications can deplete our bodies of important vitamins and minerals. We need to make sure we’re replacing them with a high potency, professional grade supplement like CanPrev’s Adult Multi.
Adult Multi is a comprehensive formula made for both men and women. It provides a full range of vitamins and minerals in therapeutic dosages and bioavailable forms for rapid absorption and utilization. Adult Multi is iron free for those who don’t require iron supplementation.
￼￼Make Adult Multi your daily policy for maintaining best health.

CanPrev Cold Pro Immune Formula 90ct
A common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract that includes your nose and throat. Symptoms usually appear one to three days after exposure and include the typical sore throat, runny or congested nose, cough, sneezing, low-grade fever and mild body aches. A fever higher than 39.4 C distinguishes a cold from a different type of viral infection.
Your immune system is the first defence against infectious organisms. It’s made up of a network of cells, tissues and organs that work together to create an immune response. Most of the time it does its job, but sometimes a weak link can allow for a virus or other infectious organisms to creep in and lead to illness.
Cold-Pro™ Immune Formula is designed to maintain and strengthen the immune system, aid in the symptomatic relief of colds and flus and speed recovery. It contains seven potent, immune boosting nutrients plus antiviral and antibacterial herbs. Research shows that each ingredient in Cold-Pro™ is extremely effective on its own, and combining them has produced a synergistic and powerful immune formulation.
