Vita Antioxidant Difference
USANA Vita-AntiOxidant contains Olivol™. Olivol™ is a patented ingredient exclusive to USANA that provides unique antioxidant pr0tection that is found in the Olive fruit.
Cell-damaging oxidative stress is caused by free radicals that come from normal cellular metabolism, exposure to pollution and toxins, stress, and poor diet and lifestyle habits. Free radicals attack our cells, gradually chipping away at their integrity, resulting in an eventual decline in health. Antioxidants neutralize the activity of free radicals to protect the integrity of our cells, which impacts every part of our body.
Mega Antioxidant provides advanced levels of a wide-range of antioxidants: Vitamins C and E, along with beta carotene (which naturally converts into vitamin A only as needed, providing the benefits of vitamin A without the risk of toxicity), are each powerful antioxidants that also reinforce the activity of the others. Flavonoids and phenolic compounds, which are abundant in fruits and vegetables, not only provide important protection against oxidative stress, they also complement and extend the activities of other antioxidants as well. A unique bio-flavonoid complex including quercetin, rutin, hesperidin, green tea, bilberry, pomegranate, and cinnamon plus broccoli concentrate and turmeric all work to inhibit the activity of free radicals.Certain polyphenolic antioxidants found in olives are not present in other common dietary sources. They are structurally distinct from the bioflavonoids and other antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables. These antioxidants are found in USANA’s patented Olivol™ olive-fruit extract.

High levels of antioxidant in the blood have been shown to help support cardiovascular health. Vitamin E and mixed tocopherols play a critical role in protecting LDL and cell membranes from oxidation, keeping arteries healthy. Vitamin C is also helpful in maintaining healthy veins and arteries by supporting healthy tissue growth and strengthening collagen.
The B vitamins, especially riboflavin, folate, and vitamins B6 and B12, are fundamental to the maintenance of healthy levels of the amino acid homocysteine, provided they are healthy to begin with.
Homo-cysteine levels have been linked to heart health. Vitamin B12 is also necessary for the health of red blood cells and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Those who do not take a supplement containing vitamin B12 are twice as likely to be vitamin B12 deficient as supplement users, regardless of age group.
Coenzyme Q10 plays a key role in producing cellular energy, demand for which is especially high in the heart, making this an important nutrient for cardiovascular health. In addition, cellular-energy production requires a full spectrum of B vitamin activities. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. USANA’s patented Olivol™ could help protect low-density lipoproteins (LDL) from oxidation.
Mixed carotenoids, including beta carotene, lutein, and other antioxidants help maintain good vision. Lutein selectively accumulates in tissues in the eye to help protect against damaging UV rays. Vitamin C is especially important for the retina, where concentration of this essential nutrient is significantly higher than in the blood.
By helping to maintain the integrity of all cell membranes, along with the digestive system and lungs, beta carotene is important for strong immunity. Vitamins B6, B12, and folate are critical for producing immune cells. Vitamin E, vitamin D, as well as vitamin C are well known for their immune-cell supporting properties.
Vitamin D helps in the development and maintenance of mineral-rich bones and teeth. Healthy levels of this important nutrient are a key part of minimizing age-related bone loss. It also supports muscle strength.
Lycopene and the combination of vitamin C and bio-flavonoids support health maintenance for many organs.
