What is Hidroxinua®25?
Hidroxinua 25 is a food supplement that provides 25 mg of hydroxytyrosol/softgel together with 15 mg of additional olive phenols that reinforce its action. Through numerous studies, it has been shown that hydroxytyrosol (HT) is one of the most efficient natural antioxidants.
Hydroxytyrosol is regarded as one of the most powerful antioxidants in nature
Hydroxytyrosol is one of the few antioxidants that act against the majority of free radicals present in our body. It can reach areas that other antioxidants cannot reach, to the point that it is able to cross the blood brain barrier.
Many situations that alter our well-being (ie. inflammations, tissue damage, diseases etc.) are often accompanied by an excessive production of electrically unstable molecules known as free radicals.
Free radicals ‘oxidize’, and therefore ‘damage’ important structures of our cells and tissues and are frequently present in numerous health disorders. However, the damaging effect of an excess of free radicals is “silent” and therefore we are not able to “feel” anything, even if they are causing damage inside us. Antioxidants are the only substances in our diet capable of counteracting the damage caused by free radicals. These antioxidants are only present in fruits and vegetables (and some nuts and seeds). In our body there are “different types” of free radicals and not all antioxidants in the diet can neutralize them, nor do they in the same way.
Therefore, not all antioxidants are the same, and their greater or lesser effectiveness will depend on:
- their ability to block the action of the most powerful free radicals (‘antioxidant footprint’).
- Antioxidant potency.
- Possibility of accessing to the interior of the cells to protect them (high penetration capacity or bio-assimilation), something that does not occur with all antioxidants
