Take a deep breath in, now breathe out. Your hardworking lungs do this 20,000 times a day. But have you ever wondered how much of the air you breathe is truly fresh? You might be surprised to know that you’re breathing in air filled with pollutants like sulfur dioxides, carbon monoxides, volatile organic compounds, and particulates.

Many of these pollutants are sources of free radicals (molecular fragments with unpaired electrons). These fragments are highly charged, unstable, and reactive and are able to break up molecules in your body like cell membranes, protein, and DNA as a result. Even worse, this breakup causes the proliferation of new free radicals, starting a chain reaction of molecular fragments.

When you inhale, air saturates millions of microscopic sacs called alveoli. Since alveoli add up to around 100 square meters of surface area, you are exposing yourself to a lot of free radicals. When your alveoli are damaged, less oxygen gets to your blood, making it much harder to breathe.

By the way, even oxygen can produce free radicals. We all have to breathe, making this damage hard to escape.

One way to protect yourself (without resorting to wearing a mask) is to supplement with antioxidants (molecules that can neutralize free radicals and terminate their chain reaction).

That’s the premise of CanPrev’s Healthy Lungs™, an advanced, multi-oxidant formula that goes straight to work helping to prevent and repair cellular damage caused by exposure to smoking, environmental pollution, or even heavy exercise. It contains antioxidants that counteract these free radicals and maintain good health.

Protect your delicate lung tissue against cell-damaging free radicals with premium quality, clinical strength antioxidants found in Healthy Lungs™.

What does Healthy Lungs do for me?

 

N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC):

In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, NAC is also known as a mucous buster. This respiratory detoxifier helps to break up disulfide bonds present in mucous, allowing it to dissolve more easily in your respiratory tract and thereby making it easier to breathe. NAC is able to cleave disulfide bonds, thereby breaking up mucoproteins that form mucus in the lungs and improving respiratory conditions and flu-like symptoms.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid):

High dietary and supplementary doses may protect against the development of chronic respiratory symptoms.

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol):

Vitamin D is required by our immune system to help fight off invading bacteria and viruses.

Vitamin E (d-alpha- tocopherol, natural):

Along with vitamins A and C, Vitamin E is depleted by cigarette smoking and other environmental stressors.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCL):

Helps to reduce potential oxidative stress from carbon monoxide, irradiation, and certain chemical exposures. Vitamin B6 deficiency has been associated with weakened immune systems.

Folic Acid (folate):

Higher serum folate levels have been shown to correlate with a reduced risk of respiratory issues such as allergic sensitization and wheezing.

Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin):

Works with folate in countless bodily processes. Studies confirm a decreased level of B vitamins in patients with chronic respiratory conditions.

Zinc (citrate):

Critical to the immune system and the detoxification of chemicals and metabolic irritants.

DL-Alpha lipoic acid:

Has unique dual-action antioxidant characteristics (both a fat and water-soluble vitamin). Can work inside and outside our cells. Has the ability to regenerate and recycle other beneficial antioxidants in the body like vitamin C, E, CoQ10, and glutathione.

Grape seed extract (95% OPCs):

Contains oligomeric proanthocyanidin (OPC) complexes, which can increase intracellular vitamin C levels, decrease permeability and fragility of capillaries, scavenge free radicals and slow the destruction of collagen in lung tissue.

Quercetin (dihydrate):

Quercetin is known for its antioxidant activity in radical scavenging and anti-allergic properties.

It has shown potential health benefits for its role in anti-inflammatory type responses which could be characterized by stimulation of the immune system.

May help reduce illness after intensive exercise and help reduce histamine levels and allergy symptoms by stabilizing mast cells and basophils.
