According to a
2001 Harris survey, six in 10 Americans (59 percent) take dietary food supplements on a regular basis. Their
main reasons for taking them were:
to feel better (72 percent), to help prevent getting sick (67 percent), or to
live longer (50 percent).1
Since our skin is the organ that is under the
heaviest attack from external forces such as UV rays, chemicals, and pollutants
(and our most visible sign of aging), shouldn't we take extra effort to protect
it as well?
Formulated with a network of 11
antioxidants, VitaOx Complex® is a dermal nutrition
anti-wrinkle moisturizing cream containing vitamins and antioxidants that can help
control free radicals, reduces skin damage, and maintains skin's youthful
It is a daily use skin care product that is designed to
protect and repair your skin while leaving it looking and feeling great.
Our skin serves as a protective wall
between our bodies and the environment. Rising skin cancer
rates, a serious indicator of skin damage, indicate sunscreens may not be
protecting us as much as they should be. Chemicals, pollution, sun exposure,
additives, and even stress (to name a few) generate oxidants which damage our
cells and form "free radicals".
What are free
Simply put, a free radical is a molecule with an unpaired electron, seeking to strip an
electron from another molecule and thus having the capacity to damage vital
compounds such as lipids and proteins. It is the over-production of these free
radicals that cause damage to our bodies. Wrinkling, thinning skin and
discoloration are symptoms common
to free radical destruction. The same oxidative process also causes oils to become rancid, peeled apples to turn brown, and iron to
Only antioxidants can
control free radicals, making the difference
between healthy and diseased tissues and influencing how
fast and how well we age.
VitaOx Complex is designed
to supply antioxidants and nutrients directly to our skin for optimal repair and
protection of this vital organ from free radical damage.
What are antioxidants and how do they fight
Antioxidants fight free radicals, and the damage that they can cause to our
bodies. They go hunting for free radicals to neutralize. Their purpose is
to give up an electron to the free radical in order to render the free radical
harmless. But in the process, the antioxidant itself becomes a
weak free radical. Fortunately, if other antioxidants are present, the
original electron donor can be "regenerated," or restored to its
antioxidant state. Having numerous antioxidants in place to take
advantage of this restoration process is a key component of VitaOx.
VitaOx Complex is
formulated with not just one or two antioxidants but with a network
11 powerful antioxidants. When used together, the antioxidant
is equal to more than the sum of its parts.
Why is the antioxidant network in VitaOx important? The primary job of the
antioxidant network is to prevent antioxidants from being lost. Normally,
when an antioxidant
attacks and neutralizes a free radical, the antioxidant benefit to that
particular cell is depleted, and it even turns into a harmless free
radical itself. However, with the proper teaming of antioxidants
into a network,
this new free radical is neutralized and regenerated back into a
productive antioxidant able to go out and scavenge for free radicals
again. Antioxidants in a network can greatly enhance the
power of one another to fight free radicals.
Can topical antioxidants
really protect and repair our skin? Yes, there is a growing amount of evidence showing that a topically
applied antioxidant cream can protect and repair the skin both before and after sun
Before Sun Exposure:
According to a 2001 University of California Department of Dermatology publication, human studies have
convincingly demonstrated that topical antioxidants protect the skin from sun
damage when applied before sun exposure. The publication concluded that
regular application of skin care products containing antioxidants may be of
the utmost benefit in protecting our skin from oxidation. 2
After Sun Exposure: According to a news
release in 2002 by the American Academy of Dermatology; the antioxidants
Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Selenium have been proven
to decrease the effect of the sun on the skin and actually prevent further
damage. The study cited in this news release indicated that applying topical
vitamin C to human skin 15 to 30 minutes after UV exposure decreased sunburn
cells and began repairing the damaged skin. It also mentioned that
topical natural vitamin E was found to reduce the production of: sunburn
cells, chronic UV-induced damage, and cancer causing cells. 3
Summary: The 2001 University of
California Department of Dermatology publication concluded that regular
application of skin care products containing antioxidants may be of the utmost
benefit in protecting our skin from oxidation. 2

experience some tingling sensation.
The Harris survey was conducted by phone from June 28 through July 1,
2001. Interviews were completed among 1,027 Americans using an unrestricted
Random Digit Dialing technique that significantly reduces serial bias and
ensures that both listed and unlisted numbers are reached. Only one interview
was conducted per household.
