Antioxidants Q&A

What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are molecules that help your body fight harmful free radicals, which can cause illnesses, diseases (diabetes, cancer, heart disease, etc.), and unwelcome signs of aging. Antioxidants, including vitamin E, beta carotene, and vitamin C, are present in numerous healthy plant-based foods. They help protect your body, keeping it as healthy as possible.

What do antioxidants protect against?

Antioxidants can protect cells against free radical damage caused by:

  • Smoking
  • Air pollution
  • Toxins
  • Alcohol consumption
  • High blood sugar
  • Unprotected sun exposure
  • Radiation 
  • Poor diet
  • Infections
  • Excessive mineral intake
  • Oxygen deficiency or excess
  • Prolonged or excessive exercise
  • Antioxidant deficiencies

Having the right amount of antioxidants in your body is vital to maintaining superior health and wellness. 

Which antioxidants are best for me?

The beYOU bioidenticals team discusses your medications, lifestyle habits, medical history, and symptoms to determine which antioxidant treatments are best. 

Your provider may also check your vital signs and order blood tests to determine if you’re deficient in vitamins or minerals, have risk factors, or have any hormone imbalances. 

Which antioxidants are available?

beYOU bioidenticals offers the following antioxidant treatments.


Glutathione is an antioxidant containing three amino acids. It’s vital for proper cell function and protecting your body against oxidative stress, environmental toxins, and diseases. Glutathione also decreases inflammation and helps prevent infections.


NAD+ is another essential, protective antioxidant. It’s a coenzyme in all living cells and contains anti-inflammatory properties that aid liver and brain health. NAD+ helps improve cognitive functioning, increases your mood and energy, and optimizes exercise recovery. It enhances your body’s overall response to stress.

How are antioxidants administered?

Depending on which antioxidants your specialist recommends, you might take oral supplements or receive injections. Your provider may also recommend you receive vitamin injections to boost low levels of specific essential nutrients.

beYOU bioidenticals also provides hormone therapy, medical weight loss, peptide therapy, and numerous other antiaging solutions.
