The Antioxidant Miracle: Put Lipoic Acid, Pycnogenol, and Vitamins E and C to Work for You

by Lester Packer (Author), Carol Colman (Author)

Editorial Reviews

A pill that strengthens your heart, sharpens your mind, keeps your body young,
extends your life, prevents cancer, and keeps your skin wrinkle-free? Sounds
like a joke or a dream, doesn't it? According to molecular cell biologist Lester
Packer, these pills exist--they are antioxidants. "Literally thousands of
studies have confirmed that antioxidants can help prevent numerous diseases and
will not only enhance life, but in all probability extend life," he writes. In
The Antioxidant Miracle, he describes breakthroughs in antioxidant research and
prescribes the Packer Plan: his "state-of-the-art antioxidant supplement, diet,
and skin-care regimen."

According to Packer, five antioxidants "network" in our bodies with "special
powers" that slow aging and fight disease: Vitamins C and E, glutathione, lipoic
acid, and Coenzyme Q10. The first two are obtained through food, the others are
produced by the body, but these levels decline as we age, so we need to
supplement. Packer describes the benefits and actions of these special
antioxidants and also recommends flavonoids such as ginkgo biloba and pycnogenol
(made from the bark of pine trees), a number of carotenoids, selenium, and a
variety of foods high in antioxidants. He spells out exactly what supplements
you need and how much, with special modifications for smokers, diabetics,
menopausal women, athletes, and people at high risk of cancer or cardiovascular
disease. The book is not easy reading: lots of scientific explanations and study
descriptions. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Finally, a book by a renowned and active researcher that proves the value of
nutritional supplements. The Antioxidant Miracle provides a shield protecting us
from disease and ensuring health. The information in this book could save your
life!-Julian Whitaker, M.D. founder, Whitaker Wellness Institute; editor, Health
and Healing

"For those of us seeking to combat the debility and diseases of aging, The
Antioxidant Miracle is an essential tool."-William Regelson, M.D.coauthor of the
New York Times bestseller, The Melatonin Miracle
