OSR#1® is a toxicity free, lipid soluble antioxidant dietary supplement that helps maintain a healthy glutathione level. OSR#1® does so by scavenging ROS (free radicals) thereby salvaging the naturally produced glutathione. Both OSR#1® and glutathione scavenge free radicals, allowing the body to maintain its own natural detoxifying capacity.
Free radicals are unstable oxygen-containing molecules that negatively interact with other molecules in the body, in a process called oxidation. High levels of free radicals and oxidation can lead to oxidative stress. The body naturally fights oxidation by producing glutathione. However, when sufficiently stressed, the body's glutathione may not be able to keep up with the production of free radicals. OSR#1® assists glutathione in its job of scavenging free radicals and may help the body maintain a healthy glutathione level.
Glutathione is the body's natural defense to free radicals. However, once glutathione stabilizes a free radical, it becomes oxidized and is usually excreted from the body. This lowers the body's level of glutathione, and high levels of oxidative stress can prevent the body from recovering its normal functioning.
OSR#1®, unlike other antioxidants, is lipid or fat-soluble. This allows OSR#1® to penetrate cell walls to scavenge free radicals within cells. Water-soluble antioxidants cannot access cells in this way and are limited in their capacity to scavenge free radicals.
This chart (click to enlarge) is an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) score, developed by Brunswick Laboratories, which measures the effectiveness of antioxidants. The ORAC score for OSR#1® is 192,400 µmoleTE per 100 grams, one of the highest recorded for a lipid soluble antioxidant. The HORAC (Hydroxyl Radical Absorbance Capacity) for OSR#1® is even higher at 299,000 µmoleTE per 100 grams.
