Research published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society has found an artifi cial antioxidant called TEMPO to be more powerful than a naturally derived one. In exploring the idea, the study authors used a mimicked cell environment to test how quickly TEMPO could convert free radicals to non-harmful molecules when compared to vitamin E, and observed that TEMPO was up to 100 times faster. "That means that [TEMPO] could be a particularly eff ective means of protecting skin tissues or even the walls of cells from damage," says Gino DiLabio, PhD, professor and head of the chemistry department at the University of British Columbia in Kelowna. "I could see this leading to the development of a topical cream to protect skin after exposure to the sun or even a pill that could protect neurons from getting damaged. The possibilities are very exciting." H E A L I N G N E W S Radical Revelation The Elite Eye Mask Order 12 or More and get FREE SHIPPING and SPECIAL PRICING!
