Blackmores Bio Ace Excell (80)
Blackmores Bio ACE® Excell + Selenium

A powerful leading edge antioxidant formulation combining antioxidant herbs, vitamins and minerals in a single, easy to swallow capsule. The latest research confirms free radicals damage our cells and contribute to sub-optimum health and many diseases. Because antioxidants work best in combination, Bio ACE Excell with grape seed + Selenium helps to ensure enhanced health protection in combating the damage caused by free radicals.

Features and benefits

  • Combines the antioxidant herbs Grape seed and Milk Thistle with betacarotene, vitamins C and E and selenium for improved synergistic action
  • Natural source vitamin E has approximately twice the bioavailability of synthetic vitamin E
  • Grape seed is a potent antioxidant which aids in the maintenance of peripheral circulation and not only protects against oxidative stress, but may also repair and restore the damage inflicted by free radicals - especially in the skin and blood vessels
  • Milk Thistle is a liver tonic with potent free radical scavenging activity. (The liver, being the body?s major organ of detoxification, is particularly susceptible to free radical damage)
  • Folic acid and vitamins B1 and B12 have an essential role in the metabolism of the amino acid homocysteine
  • Selenium performs many vital functions in the body.
  • Easy-to-swallow capsule

How it works

Bio ACE Excell with grape seed + Selenium is a potent antioxidant providing nutrients that reduce the susceptibility of body tissues to free radical-mediated processes in cell membranes. Vitamins C and E are well documented for their powerful antioxidant activity and are the subject of clinical trials worldwide. They are combined here with betacarotene (another powerful antioxidant which may be indicated where there is a dietary deficiency of vitamin A), and zinc (which has an antioxidant role in the skin where it is involved in the functions of wound healing and normal oil gland function). The vitamins B1, B12 and folic acid are included due to their essential role in the metabolism of the amino acid homocysteine. Selenium is an essential antioxidant mineral that performs many functions in the body including preservation of normal liver function and maintaining resistance to disease.

Grape seeds contain catechin polymers called oligomeric procyanidins (commonly known as OPCs), which are highly bioavailable and powerful antioxidants, appearing to be both complementary to and synergistic with vitamins (in particular they protect and complement the free radical scavenging effect of vitamin C). Grape seed extract assists in the maintenance of peripheral circulation and capillary fragility. Milk Thistle has a protective effect on the cell membrane which is mediated by a strong free radical scavenging and antioxidant action. It assists in detoxification processes in the liver by increasing the activity of super oxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase.
