This is the acetate derivative of the active form of vitamin A – retinol.
Many supplements prefer the precursor form called beta-carotene. However, the conversion of beta-carotene to active vitamin A may not be sufficient in many people. Beta-carotene is found in food like sweet potato, kale, winter squash, carrots, sweet red peppers and spinach. Whereas foods rich in retinol are liver, cod liver oil, certain fish, cheese and butter.
Vitamin A is an important element for keeping your eyes healthy, immune system strong, skin healthy and glowing, bones healthy, cholesterol at healthy levels and ensuring proper development and repair in the body.
Deficiency in vitamin A can manifest as dryness of conjunctiva and cornea, night blindness, buildup of keratin in conjunctiva, dry lips, thick or scaly skin, low immunity and stunted growth in children.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that needs to be consumed regularly to maintain adequate levels.Foods rich invitamin C are black currants, red peppers, kiwi fruit, guavas, green peppers, oranges, strawberries etc.
Vitamin C has a powerful impact on health. It is required to maintain heart health, act as a powerful antioxidant, enhancing brain function, support a healthy immune system and promotecollagen formation andhealthy skin.
Deficiency in vitamin C can manifest in symptoms like easy bruising, nosebleeds, rough dry scaly skin, swollen/bleeding gums, weak immune system, dry red spots on the skin and joint pain.
Most supplements make use of synthetic vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid. However, studies have shown improved results with natural vitamin C. This is possibly because of the synergistic effect of other components present in the natural source. SEDOX uses Vitamin C extracted from Acerola cherries.
Glutathione is dubbed by some as the “mother of all antioxidants”. It is needed in the body to both directly deal with free radicals as well as recycle other antioxidants present in the body.
Glutathione is useful in supporting the immune system, detoxifying the body, preventing cancer, aging, heart disease, dementia and much more.
Although glutathione is produced in the body, its levels deplete because of poor diets, pollution, toxins, aging, stress, medications and infections.
L-Cysteine is a semi-essential amino acid. This means that it can be produced by the body but requires dietary intake of other amino acids required to produce it. L-Cysteine is one of the building blocks of glutathione in the body and enhances its levels.
Its benefits range from improving detoxification and reducing oxidative stress, improving fertility, balancing blood sugars and supporting a healthy digestive system. it is also known to help in respiratory and psychiatric disorders.
Lutein is a type of carotenoid antioxidant found in plants, mainly green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, broccoli and other colored vegetables and fruits like carrots, orange, papaya etc. It is best absorbed with healthy fat in the diet.

Lutein also helps protect skin from light induced damage and can help lower risk of diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
Lycopene is a phytonutrient pigment responsible for the red color in tomatoes. It is also found in papayas, watermelon, grapefruit, asparagus, red cabbage, mangos, guavas and carrots.
Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that is capable of fighting toxins and certain pesticides. It is also shown to help prevent cancer, maintain eye health, alleviate neuropathic pain, is good for the brain, improves heart health and helps keep bones strong.
Like lutein, zeaxanthin is another carotenoid found in leafy greens and yellow vegetables. It works together with lutein to help protect eyes from age related macular degeneration. Zeaxanthin also helps maintain other aspects of eye health.
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid and isknown as one of the most potent antioxidants found in nature. It is also a pigment that imparts its red-orange color to organisms like algae, lobster, krill and salmon.
With 6000 times the antioxidant power of vitamin C, Astaxanthin is known to improve brain health, protect heart health, keep skin glowing, improve immunity, reduce inflammation, improve physical endurance, boost fertility and support healthy vision.
Quercetin is a type of flavonoid antioxidant that also imparts color to fruits and vegetables.
It is found in a variety of elements in a healthy diet.
Quercetin’s antioxidant ability and anti-inflammatory properties make it useful in fighting related conditions like atherosclerosis, heart disease, diabetes, eye related, disorders, allergies, asthma, infection, cancers, fatigue, skin issues etc. It also protects the liver, improves physical endurance and helps fight pain.
Resveratrol is a polyphenol bioflavonoid found mainly in the skin of red grapes, in red wine, and also in raw cocoa and dark colored berries like blueberries, mulberries and bilberries.
Resveratrol’s potent antioxidant activity endows it with properties that are anti-aging, anti-cancer, protectiveof cardiovascular health, protectiveof the brain and cognitive/mental health and also helpin insulin regulation making it is useful in obesity and diabetes.
Grape seeds are rich in different types of antioxidants like phenolic acids, flavonoids, anthocyanins and Oligomeric ProanthocyanidinComplexes (OPCs).
It is purported that grape seed extract is beneficial in a number of conditions ranging from cardiovascular issues like high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, poor circulation and heart disease, cancer, diabetes related complications and Alzheimer’s disease.
This nutrient is produced by the body. Aging, chronic diseases, high oxidative stress, B vitamin deficiencies, mitochondrial diseases and statin drugs may lead to depleted levels.
CoQ10 is essential to every cell in the body. Its primary function is as an antioxidant. It is essential for protecting cells from free radical damage. It is also essential in the energy production process and to recycle other antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E.
Lipoic Acid is produced bythe body. It is also synthesized byplants and animals. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is an antioxidant and helps fight free radicals. It is beneficial in converting glucose to energy.Alpha lipoic acid is found in foods like broccoli, spinach, red meat, tomatoes etc.
Because of its antioxidant nature, it helps fight inflammation, detoxify and fight damage to blood vessels, brain, neurons and other organs like the heart and liver.
It is also useful in fighting diabetes and its complications, preserving eye health andboosting glutathione.
SOD is found in all living cells in the body and is regarded as the most important antioxidant that is made in the body. This is because SOD is the frontline defense against oxidative stress in the body.
SOD is effective in reducing inflammation, relieving arthritis, helps fight cancer, boosts skin health and provides other benefits associated with relieving oxidative stress.
SOD used in SEDOX is made in France (by the brand name Extramel) It is in coated form so as to prevent destruction in stomach and provide maximum availability to the body.
Vitamin E exists in 8 forms in nature: a, b, d, g tocopherol and a, b, d, g tocotrienol; however, most supplements typically provide a synthetic derivative of only one of these 8 forms - alpha tocopherol. Vitamin E is found in food like sunflower seeds, almonds, hazelnut, mango, avocados and broccoli.
Vitamin E helps fight free radicals being an antioxidant, helps balance cholesterol, promotes skin and hair health, helps balance hormones, supports healthy vision, may lower risk of cancer, support strength and endurance and is vital for growth and maintenance.
SEDOX uses all four forms of tocopherols, naturally extracted from non-GMO rapeseed and sunflower. Natural sources have improved absorption and activity.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral with a variety of functions in the body. Zinc is found in foods like pumpkin seeds, beef, lamb, lobster, cashews, chickpeas, lentils, mushrooms and chicken.
Zinc helps fight oxidative stress and boost the immune system, helps balance hormones, fight diabetes, maintains healthy cardiovascular health, aids in digestion and absorption, supports liver health, aids in growth and repair and even supports eye health.
Deficiency may lead to symptoms such as poor neurological function like lack of attention and motor disorders, weak immunity and allergies, hair loss, acne, hormonal disorders, change in appetite, change in taste and smell, and even chronic fatigue.
Data shows that zinc deficiency is one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies in the world and for that reason poses a serious problem. This is because simply consuming zinc rich foods does not always mean it is being absorbed.
SEDOX uses a form of zinc called zinc glycinate. This form is a chelate between zinc and the amino acid glycine. It is more efficiently absorbed over most other forms commonly found in supplements.
Copper is an essential trace mineral essential for several biological functions. Copper is found in liver meat, dark chocolate, sunflower seeds, cashews, chickpeas and lentils.
