Sally-Ann Creed®’s Detox / Antiox is a combination of Pine Bark extract, Astaxanthin and Green Rooibos extract, each of which provide a multitude of benefits for the human body.
Astaxanthin (AST) is a precursor of vitamin A and is mainly found in crustaceans with a red-orange colour. It is known to have a cardio-protective effect by improving the progression of atherosclerosis (buildup of fats, cholesterol and other substances in and on your artery walls, often referred to as plaque) and is able to improve the immune system response by acting as an antioxidant. It may be beneficial for sport performance due to its ability to increase muscle endurance, and has also been shown to improve eye function by decreasing eye fatigue and protecting against UV light.
Green Rooibos extract is a South African plant extract well-known for its antioxidative properties. It has been shown to reduce blood glucose levels by increasing glucose uptake and increasing insulin secretion. It has also shown a positive effect on cholesterol levels due to its ability to decrease total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and increase HDL cholesterol levels.
Pine Bark extract (Pycnogenol™) is rich in flavonoids and has antioxidative properties meaning it is able to protect the body from oxidative stress. In addition to this, Pine Bark extract is well-known for its cardio-protective benefits and support in, and promotion of joint and skin health.
