AOR Antioxident Synergy 120 Veggie Caps
Antioxidants are nutrients found in all types of fruits and vegetables, plants, nuts and seeds. They help to protect the body from the damage caused by toxic molecules called free radicals. Free radicals play a role in the aging process and the development of most diseases including cataracts, heart disease, infertility, arthritis, abnormal cell development and many other chronic health conditions.
Antioxidants work by neutralizing free radicals before they can damage cells. They do this by stabilizing them but during this process, the antioxidants themselves become mild free radicals and must be “recycled” back to their original form to keep acting as antioxidant. Moreover, some antioxidants are more effective in certain locations in the body than others, meaning that you need to take the right ones for best results!
The vicious cycle of oxidation can be prevented through taking advantage of the unique complementary interactions of an elite antioxidant strike force: the Networking Antioxidants. There are five networking antioxidants: R (+)-lipoic acid, the vitamin E complex, vitamin C, coenzyme Q10, and glutathione (GSH). When taken together, these essential nutrients form a dynamic team of protectors which can “recycle” one another. By this process, networking antioxidants enhance and extend one another’s capacities.
Other antioxidants play a supporting role to the networking antioxidants. The best understood of these network-boosters are bioflavonoids and the mineral selenium. Among bioflavonoids, carnosic acid and resveratrol are particularly interesting. Carnosic acid is found in the herb rosemary while resveratrol comes from grapes. Selenium also supports the network by maintaining the body’s supply of two key enzymes.
AOR’s Antioxidant Synergy offers the most powerful combination of antioxidants to reduce inflammation and cellular damage that contribute to aging and chronic health conditions.

AOR High Dose R-Lipoic Acid 300mg 60 Veggie Caps
Lipoic acid is a versatile antioxidant known for its ability to protect the brain and nerve cells from free radicals and heavy metals that promote cognitive and neurodegenerative diseases. Lipoic acid is known as the “captain of the antioxidants” due to its ability to recycle and recharge other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Numerous studies have shown that lipoic acid can balance blood sugar and repair nerves damaged by diabetes. Additionally, this powerful anti-aging nutrient has been shown to mimic some of the effects of caloric restriction, the only proven method of extending health span and lifespan. It does so by protecting the mitochondria against free radical damage. Due to its action on the mitochondria it can revive damaged cells, especially those found in nerves and in the liver. It is a powerful partner for glutathione, the most powerful antioxidant produced in the body.
R-Lipoic acid is a powerful, natural and well-rounded antioxidant with many actions such as repairing nerves, balancing blood sugar, protecting the brain and increasing energy formation in the mitochondria. Regular doses of lipoic acid are recommended for maintaining overall general health while high doses of R( ) lipoic acid are recommended for the management of high blood sugar, diabetic neuropathy and weight.
In 1999, AOR was the first company in the world to offer pure R( ) Lipoic Acid based on the most current literature. AOR’s pure R-Lipoic acid delivers the most effective form of this valuable antioxidant without the negative actions of lipoic acid’s S (-) form. Regular doses of lipoic acid are recommended for maintaining overall general health while high doses of R( ) Lipoic Acid are recommended for the management of high blood sugar and diabetic neuropathy problems.
High dose R( ) lipoic acid provides a convenient and more economical dosage in a reduced capsule count for those that need to take a higher dosage at one time for that therapeutic treatment and management of high blood sugar levels, and/or for improving neuropathy conditions.
AOR P.E.A. Activate 90 Capsules
Supports cellular homeostasis
- Scientifically shown to help reduce chronic pain and inflammation
- A naturally occurring long-chain fatty acid amide, generally produced in response to various triggers including inflammation
- Studied for 80 years and by more than 300+ medical studies
- Capsules for your convenience
Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a long chain fatty acid naturally produced by the body but also found in foods such as egg yolk, soy and sunflower oils. This molecule, researched for its unique and varied health benefits for eighty years, is now receiving attention because of its crucial role in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a lipid communication network with critical physiological functions. It is a signaling network that communicates with other systems throughout the body, helping to regulate them. PEA is an endocannabinoid produced locally by the cells, and it accumulates in tissues following any injury, physical stress or pain.
By inhibiting the activation of mast cells that cause additional inflammation (such as the release of histamine), PEA acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent. This unique molecule has other direct and indirect mechanisms of action; it even enhances the action of other endocannabinoids through its “entourage effect”. The PEA molecule has been clinically demonstrated to relieve pain in osteoarthritis of the knee as well as to reduce symptoms of low back pain. This mighty little molecule is well toleratedfor athletes, children and seniors.
AOR is leading the way by transforming the impressive and evolving research on PEA’s positive effects within the human endocannabinoid system, bringing you a safe and therapeutic formulation to combat chronic pain and systemic inflammation. The PEA in AOR’s P.E.A.k Activate is produced in Italy and originally extracted from environmentally sustainable Malaysian palm oil that is purified and responsibly processed for optimal bioavailability.
AOR Quercetin 100 Veggie Caps
Quercetin belongs to the flavonoid class of antioxidants commonly found in apples, onions and citrus fruits. Its use has been widely established, particularly in Europe, for the treatment of a variety of ailments including allergy symptoms, diabetic complications and cardiovascular concerns, all thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects.
Although Quercetin’s main application is for those with allergy symptoms (such as itchy eyes, itchy throat, sneezing and nasal congestion), quercetin also promotes cardiovascular health due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. It reduces the oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDL), promotes healthy blood pressure and blood clotting, enhances nitric oxide (NO) production, and reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome. Quercetin can provide relief from headaches and other types of pain, as it inhibits the production of inflammatory signaling molecules by a mechanism similar to that of aspirin. Quercetin also inhibits the release of histamine from certain immune cells, hence why it is widely used by those who suffer from constant allergies (such as dust) and seasonal allergies (such as hay fever).
AOR’s Quercetin is derived from citrus-free sources. AOR offers two sizes of this formula in order to take full advantage of the health benefits offered by this flavonoid powerhouse. Quercetin can add a boost for anyone at risk or suffering from a cardiovascular condition, battling allergies or plagued with headaches.
AOR Resveratrol 90 VSoftgels
Resveratrol is a plant compound known as a polyphenol, and naturally occurs in grapes, dark chocolate, various berries, and some herbs. In a trans-form for easy absorption, Resveratrol provides a rich source of antioxidants that helps to combat the damaging effects that medications, pollution, UV rays, and dietary choices have on cell health. Studies have shown that resveratrol reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the incidence of arterial plaque formation. Its most unique application is that it mimics the biological effects of eating a calorie restricted diet, which has many different health benefits.
While red grapes are high in resveratrol, they are often extremely costly, and require massive amounts of energy, chemicals, and environmental resources to grow, maintain, and extract nutrients from. AOR’s Resveratrol is sourced from wildcrafted Japanese knotweed, a naturally-occurring plant of the dock family. Japanese knotweed is listed by the World Conservation Union (UICN) as one of the world’s 100 most invasive species. Rather than horticulture societies attempting to eradicate these weeds with herbicides releasing harmful chemicals into the atmosphere, AOR is contributing to manual control by using the knotweed as our preferred source of Resveratrol. Furthermore, Japanese Knotweed yields more trans-resveratrol which is the more active form. Having Resveratrol in a naturally tinted softgel also helps maintain the integrity of the antioxidant which is otherwise subject to light, heat, and oxygen exposure.
AOR’s Resveratrol is formulated in a carrageenan-free Vegan Softgel, offering optimal absorption and suitability for various dietary preferences or restrictions. As Japanese knotweed is considered an invasive plant species, AOR’s Resveratrol is a superior option when considering sustainability.
AOR Saffron 60 Veggie Caps
With over 150 identified compounds in the flower, this highly prized herb has widespread traditional health-related uses, from inflammation to PMS to digestive support. However, it is now being seriously regarded for its therapeutic role in mood, homocysteine levels, anxiety and more. It is a natural support for neurotransmitters, which modulate various functions including sleep and mood. Studies to date support its effective role in the management of depressive symptoms, with mechanisms of action thought to be similar to prescription antidepressants (i.e. re-uptake inhibition of monoamines [dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin] and inhibition of the N-methyl-D-aspartic acid [NMDA] receptor). Saffron has also been found to have GABA-like effects, which assists in relieving feelings of anxiety. Saffron has been clinically proven to help manage stress while supporting mood balance, and scientific studies continue to reveal its health-related advantages.
Astaxanthin 4mg 60 Vegi-Caps
Astaxanthin is a unique carotenoid compound found in abundance in marine environments, particularly in algae. Astaxanthin is what gives red algae its colour and subsequently salmon their pink flesh when they consume the algae. Astaxanthin is considered a far more powerful antioxidant than beta-carotene or vitamin E, because unlike most other antioxidants, it does not create a free radical itself after quenching one, and can therefore quench numerous radicals in a row. This allows it to protect cell membrane lipids from free radical damage.
Many supplements provide astaxanthin extracted from krill. AOR’s Astaxanthin 4 mg provides a high-quality source of this unique and powerful antioxidant from sustainable Haematococcus pluvialis algae.
