Oxidation and free-radical production are natural and necessary processes within the body. However, when these processes are excessive or uncontrolled as a result of ongoing environmental stressors, they can create damaging effects and lead to a plethora of health concerns. This is where antioxidants come to the rescue.
A number of vitamins and minerals have proven essential for antioxidant support and have found their place in the treatment of chronic disease. Specifically, vitamins A, C and E, selenium and zinc are all involved in a complex network of antioxidants, needed to regenerate one another, encourage detoxification, build glutathione and prevent cellular damage. For this reason, Cyto-Matrix doctors formulated A.C.E.S. + Zinc. These nutrients work synergistically throughout the body and have many clinical indications.
A.C.E.S. + Zinc should be considered in cases of poor immunity. Collectively, vitamins A, C and E, selenium and zinc help to ensure proper immune function and reduce the frequency of common infections. The combination of these nutrients provides a direct and potent anti-viral action, making the formula useful in both chronic and acute viral infections.
A.C.E.S. + Zinc is also a powerhouse antioxidant formula for men’s and women’s health. For example, male infertility is often a result of free radical damage and mitochondrial disruption leading to abnormal sperm parameters. The vitamins and minerals in A.C.E.S. + Zinc have been individually studied for their ability to improve both sperm count and sperm function, and zinc can improve testosterone levels in zinc-deficient men. At the same time, research has shown that vitamins C and E, alone and in combination, are capable of increasing blood levels of progesterone in women. In vivo studies have found the same for selenium supplementation. In both men and women experiencing low thyroid function, selenium is needed for proper conversion of T4 to T3 and zinc is beneficial for improving thyroid receptor sensitivity.
Finally, the nutrients found in A.C.E.S. + Zinc are crucial for collagen production and tissue healing. This formula should be considered in cases of acne vulgaris, acne rosaceae, psoriasis, eczema and any skin condition to reduce irritation and improve healing. In cases of trauma such as surgery, bone fractures or open wounds, A.C.E.S. + Zinc can increase collagen synthesis and help to regenerate the skin, bone and structural tissues.
All in all, Cyto-Matrix’s A.C.E.S. + Zinc provides evidence-based vitamins and minerals in well-absorbed and stable forms for complete antioxidant support. Available in 60 vegetable capsule and 120 vegetable capsule bottles.
