Olivamine is a patented antioxidant blend that protects against free radicals throughout the body. This is important because free radicals can lead to inflammation, cell death, and disease if they are not properly neutralized. There is an ever-expanding body of evidence that links free radical damage and inflammation into almost all disease processes in the body, making this a key focus of medical research and intervention.
The effects of Olivamine were first researched in skin cells. The findings resulted in the first patents being issued for improved wound healing, activation of cellular antioxidant systems, increasing cellular lifespan, and more. The incorporation of Olivamine into medical-grade skin care products resulted in the birth of an industry-leading line of skin care products used in hospitals and nursing facilities around the world.
Based on the ongoing research, the decision was made to provide the benefits of Olivamine to the rest of the body by incorporating it into a line of quality dietary supplements. The research continues to grow showing that Olivamine has additional benefits in all types of cells found throughout the body. Currently, our researchers have been issued multiple patents with additional patents pending based on the scientific findings with Olivamine. It has been shown to activate and deactivate specific genes that are implicated in many health conditions in the growing field of epigenetics.
You might be asking, what is in Olivamine? What makes Olivamine unique?
Hydroxytyrosol (Olive leaf extract) Glycine, Taurine, N-acetyl-l-cysteine, Proline, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM),
Now, let’s break them down:
Hydroxytyrosolfrom olive leaf extract, is amongst the most potent dietary antioxidants ever discovered. Its small molecular size means it's able to easily get inside cells where it has been shown to activate some of the cells most potent and natural defense mechanisms. Research indicates that hydroxytyrosol has the ability to protect cells from stress, slow the growth of certain cancer cells, and increase the lifespan of healthy cells. We include it in our supplements specifically for its demonstrated ability to increase genetic expression and production of one of the cells most potent antioxidants that helps protect the mitochondria from free-radical damage, MnSOD (manganese superoxide dismutase).
N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC) is a natural dietary amino acid that is required to help produce one of the cell's most important antioxidants, glutathione. Because of NAC and glutathione's important role in protecting the cells and detoxifying the body, NAC is often the first line treatment in hospitals around the world for liver damage caused by toxic doses of some drugs such as acetaminophen. (Note: glutathione cannot be absorbed orally, so NAC is used orally to raise levels of glutathione in the body)
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a natural source of dietary sulfur, included here to encourage and support the body's production of sulfur-containing amino acids. These are necessary for protein synthesis (important stuff!)
Glycine, Taurine, and Proline, are important dietary amino acids with antioxidant capacity that have been shown to provide biochemical synergy with hydroxytyrosol, MSM, and NAC.
Vitamins B3 and B6 are essential co-factors for many of the biochemical systems at play here. They are essentially helper molecules that support all of the complicated processes going on.
It's not just the blend of these specific ingredients that makes them special - it's the precise amounts of each specific ingredient and how they work together to benefit the cells in your body. All of the ingredients have been tested individually and in various combinations to determine the precise balance for specific cellular responses such as increased expression of certain genes and antioxidant systems including MnSOD. After years of research, the formula was dialed in to give us our patented Olivamine 10® Max formula that is included in all Pinnaclife products.
