- assists the body's ability to break down peroxynitrites
Peroxynitrite Scavenger is designed to help clear the body of the dangerous free radical, peroxynitrite. Peroxynitrite is considered to be one of the major pathological causes of numerous diseases because it suppresses mitochondrial function and triggers cell death via oxidation and nitration reactions. Poor diets, environmental toxins, and genetic variants can all lead to an increase in peroxynitrites and glutamate, lowered antioxidants and slower rebuilding and repair of cells, which causes faster aging and conditions for disease. This product can be used for those genetically at risk for high levels of inflammation and/or those with signs and symptoms of inflammation.
Nitric Oxide, NO, a natural signaling molecule, is highly reactive with superoxide and produces peroxynitrite, a power oxidant; as a reaction unmediated by an enzyme, peroxynitrite is produced nearly instantaneous upon collision between molecules. Through interaction with DNA, proteins and lipids, peroxynitrite mediates cellular function in variety of ways, ranging from minor changes to cellular communication to apoptosis. Acting as a catalyst, peroxynitrite’s oxidant properties can be observed through nos uncoupling, the process of BH4 being catalyzed, releasing superoxide. As a cofactor for peroxynitrite, superoxide production may pose negative health implications. During in vivo research, peroxynitrite has been shown to be factor in conditions such as a stroke, chronic heart failure, myocardial infarction, circulatory shock, chronic inflammatory diseases, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders; furthermore, peroxynitrite has been associated with carcinogenesis, and aging. It has been reported that even moderate instability in peroxynitrite has the ability to disrupt cellular processes, signaling, and induce cell death. Mitochondrial function, which produces both NO and superoxide, is also drastically effected by peroxynitrite; it is suggested peroxynitrite may influence nearly every function of the mitochondria. Peroxynitrite Scavenger contains the natural supplements to aid the body’s ability to reduce this damaging oxidant, peroxynitrite; fortunately, multiple other supplementation products, provided by Professional Health Products, have the potential to assist the bodies natural ability to reduce peroxynitrite and may provide additional support. These include NOS Assist, Pro SOD/Catalase, BH4 Assist, GSH Assist, Glutathione Accelerator and Actyl Glutatione.
