Simple Truth About Oxidation
The body is composed of cells.
Each cell is surrounded by a cell membrane made
primarily of fat (cholesterol).
A healthy cell membrane is selectively
allows water and oxygen to flow freely into the cell. This
keeps the cell hydrated, pH balanced and ready to
It also allows carbon dioxide and other waste
products to flow freely out of the cell.
There are proteins that are imbedded
into the cell membrane that regulate the transfer of
minerals, hormones, vitamins, enzymes and other
nutrients into and out of the cell.
This process is referred to as
Overall health is determined by the
health of the cell membrane, without it the basic
functions of the body cannot happen as healthy cells
need healthy membranes and healthy cells equal health
tissues, healthy organs and the health of the entire
does wrong with cellular health?
Every day, each of the cells of the body is assaulted by damaging
Free radicals cause cellular damage.
This damage has been linked to virtually every
illness or disease, as shown in countless studies. The one thing all these studies agree on is
that over time free radicals begin to damage otherwise
healthy organs, tissues and cells.
It can even damage DNA.
do free radicals damage your health?
A healthy cell membrane becomes
damaged by free radical oxidation.
As the damage from oxidation progresses the
cell membrane actually changes.
The oxidized fats (remember the cell
membrane is made of fat) in the cell membrane are no
longer fluid, flexible and permeable but instead
become thick, sticky and impermeable.
This is similar to the fat on your
kitchen exhaust fan.
The thick, sticky fats in the cell
membrane are no longer able to allow the free passage
of water and oxygen into the cell, or allow the carbon
dioxide and other waste products out of the cell.
As cells become burdened with toxic
waste and even more free radicals, a greater imbalance
in the natural pH occurs, until these cells become
hopelessly dehydrated. The accumulation of acids, waste products
and free radicals leads to further oxidation of the
cell membranes, and so the downward cycle of oxidation
Basics of Free Radicals & Oxidation
The cells – Cells are made up of
stable atoms contain an even number of paired
radicals occur when stable atoms lose an electron,
resulting in a single, unstable, unpaired electron.
Once created, these free radicals
set off a chain reaction that begins a cycle of
oxidative damage. It all begins with the cell membrane.
News from Dr. Parker
Dr. Parker discovered this cycle can be
reversed by delivering high levels of antioxidants to
the cells. These
antioxidants restore the cell membrane back to health.
Healthy cell membranes once again allow oxygen
and water to flow freely into the cell and wastes out
of the cell.
This re-activates the body’s self-healing cycle.
In order to stop the
oxidation cycle, the free radicals must become stable
again. That single, unpaired electron must find a
have the unique ability to donate an electron,
transforming the free radical back into a stable atom.
