Scientists believe that free radicals, such as hydrogen peroxide, cause our cells to age and mutate. Catalase promotes the conversion of these free radicals into oxygen and water1.*
CoQ10 is responsible for the conversion of food into energy, supplying 95% of the energy requirements of our bodies2. CoQ10 also acts as an antioxidant to protect important tissue from the harmful effects of free radicals, making Oxylent a powerful anti-aging supplement.*
The vital importance of vitamin D3 is proven by leading research institutions worldwide, and is now recognized as a key ingredient for bone and immune health.*
If you would like to learn more about some of the key ingredients in Oxylent, such as Catalase, L-Arginine, CoQ10, and Vitamin D3, please refer to these studies:|

Vitamin D (cholecalciferol) plays a role in supporting calcium uptake, and is partly responsible for the making and maintaining of bones and teeth. Vitamin D has also been found to boost immune function and may be helpful for those with autoimmune diseases, depression, and cancer. Cholecalciferol or vitamin D3 is the natural form of vitamin D that is found in food and made by the sun. This form of vitamin D is better absorbed and utilized by the body.

To protect cells from oxidative damage, the enzymes, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Catalase, work in conjunction to convert highly reactive superoxide into water and oxygen. The first step involves SOD, an enzyme found in all cells. SOD eliminates superoxide from the cell by rapidly converting it into hydrogen peroxide, then Catalase converts the hydrogen peroxide to beneficial water and oxygen.
Catalase and SOD are among the fastest enzymes known and are extremely efficient in eliminating the oxidants that are a natural biproduct of metabolism. Both SOD and Catalase are required to remove reactive oxygen molecules from the body, thereby preventing oxidative damage. SOD is important for preventing cellular mutation and promoting vitality5.*
Catalase is found naturally in the majority of multi-cellular organisms. In humans, Catalase is found in all the body’s organs, but most abundantly in the liver. Catalase is used to rapidly decompose hydrogen peroxide into beneficial oxygen and water.
Hydrogen peroxide is a toxic waste product from metabolism. Removing the hydrogen peroxide produced in the mitochondria during metabolism is essential for preventing the buildup of reactive species in the body and vital for good health.* Catalase is a powerful antioxidant, and is one of the most efficient enzymes known, promoting the conversion of millions of hydrogen peroxide molecules to water and oxygen every second.*
Catalase, which is produced and absorbed naturally by the body, has been added to Oxylent to assist in correcting the imbalance between pro-oxidants (free radicals, hydrogen radicals) and the antioxidants that break them down. Too many pro-oxidants often result in damage to lipids, proteins, and DNA. Free radicals are the cause of hundreds of negative health issues.
The importance of Catalase was dramatically demonstrated in a study communicated by P. S. Rabinovitch at the University of Washington in the journal, Science (vol. 308, page 1909, June 24, 2005). The authors demonstrated that an increase in the concentration of Catalase leads to a significant decrease in oxidative damage, as well as a statistically significant extension of the life span of mice. This study directly correlated Catalase with longevity in an unbiased study, suggesting that decreasing oxidative damage with Catalase is an effective method of improving health.

According to published scientific evidence, effervescent technology is both better and faster absorbed than tablets. Oxylent provides nearly 100% bioavailability.
