WHERE WOMEN GATHER FOR STRENGTH, ENCOURAGEMENT AND WISDOM
Today I would like to talk about a supplement called Vitapulse and that is manufactured by Princeton Nutrients. It is a 100% natural dietary health-care supplement based on PQQ which stands for pyrroloquinoline quinone, NAC which is N-acetyl-cysteine and finally CoQ10 which is, of course, CoenzymeQ10. You could find these natural antioxidants in food sources as well as in the human body.
Coenzyme Q10 is something that your body produces naturally and it is very important not just for being an antioxidant that reduces oxidative damage but also for the production of adenosine triphosphate which is chemical energy that cells use to function, as fuel basically. Now, if you know anything about antioxidants then you know that they are claimed to help reduce the risk of diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's, to reduce cognitive decline that is age-related, to delay aging and so on.

The theory behind antioxidants it that they help neutralize free radicals and this has been proven, we even know how they do it. Basically, an antioxidant like NAC will "shed" some of its electrons and those electrons will pair with oxidants which are essentially unpaired and reactive electrons, forming a bond which stops the harmful nature of an oxidant.
Antioxidants do not become reactive or unstable when they lose electrons which are why they are perfect for dealing with oxidants. What oxidants also do in your body is attack and steal electrons from other atoms and when they steal an electron, the other one remains unpaired and it becomes another oxidant. This can lead to chain reactions and oxidative stress in your body and this damage that they cause to cells and DNA contributes to the development of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, heart disease and more.
The ingredients in Vitapulse have clinical background however here's the problem that I have not just with Vitapulse but other supplements that use antioxidants. Science shows that antioxidant supplementation does not help treat or prevent cancer or other diseases that are related to antioxidant damage.
What you get from foods, those antioxidants do help but there is no proof that using higher quantities is efficient, more than what a diet offers. Furthermore, Vitapulse uses low amounts, too low to offer decent results or benefits and even then, the proof is not there so all things considered I do not think that it is worth it.
