Action of Free Radicals

Action of Free Radicals

Some Free Radicals are a naturally occurring result of the energy producing processes within our body cells. As we create energy, some of the oxygen molecules used in the process are released into the body as Free Radicals. An oxygen molecule normally has 4 balanced pairs of electrons; however metabolism can remove one electron and leave the oxygen unbalanced. This unbalanced oxygen molecule is a Free Radical and is very highly reactive. As it moves through our body, a Free Radical removes electron from another molecule to replace its missing electron. This damages the other molecule and can make it an unbalanced Free Radical, capable of damaging still other molecules. The end result is a chain reaction of damage caused by each Free Radical that can affect thousands of other molecules.

“Free radicals…spin erratically throughout the body, damaging every cell and tissue they contact until they are finally stopped by an antioxidant…Free radicals destroy cell membranes, damage collagen and other connective tissues, disrupt important physiological processes, and create mutations in the DNA cells. Free radicals have been implicated in more than sixty diseases, including heart disease, hardening of the arteries, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, cataracts and cancer.”

Clark Hansen, N.M.D., “Grape Seed Extract” 1995

Your bodies’ natural defences against this damage are called antioxidants. An example of how this system works can be seen in the browning oxidation that happens to a sliced apple when left exposed for several hours. If we drip lemon juice on a fresh apple slice, it will resist browning oxidation much longer. The lemon juice contains Vitamin C which is an antioxidant and blocks the Free radical damage.

Unfortunately, our diets have become increasingly deficient in antioxidants and our bodies are now exposed to more than normal amounts of Free Radicals. Our polluted world is full or Free Radicals, which are found in cigarette smoke (and secondary smoke), radiation, exhaust emissions, alcohol, pesticides and preservatives. This excess exposure to Free Radicals overwhelms our defences and leads to diseases and premature aging.

The number of oxidative hits to DNA per cell per day is estimated to be about 10,000, and people have approximately 100 trillion cells in their body. To alter these degenerative effects, you must fortify yourself with the proper protection.

Our first introduction to this industry was in 1989 when we were introduced to Matol Botanical International and their flagship product Matol/ Km. We had the pleasure of working with some of the giants in the industry and learning from them. Our greatest joy came from seeing how our health products and business opportunity changed people’s lives. When you put together Univera’s products, marketing plan and support programs with Matol’s flagship product; Matol/ Km, you have what we feel is the best this industry has to offer.

How To Add Radicals?

How To Add Radicals?
Radicals are nothing but square roots. Radicals can of course be added, but only with like numerals. This means the number inside the square must be the same in all cases. A fraction can contain radical, but it is not a radical as such. The confusion between radical and fraction arises because of the word rational. What is the meaning of rational? It is nothing but a fraction without a radical. There is absolutely no relation between rational and radical and hence beginners be careful when you deal with it!
Like Radicals
When the values inside the root are the same it can be reduced easily. For instance, consider the following equation
5 Root 8x + 4 Root 8x
As said the values inside the square are the same and hence you can just add it like any other number which means the answer is
9 Root 8x
It can further be simplified if required. Simplification means the root has to be split further to its basic form. Here it would be like this
8x is equal to Root 4x * Root 2x
The square root of 4 is 2*2, as it is a perfect square. So the equation becomes
9*2 Root 2
That means 18 Root 2
Unlike Radicals
If not alike you can try to simplify as far as possible and then add. For instance, consider the following equation:
5 Root (40x) + 3 Root (10x)
The above is an equation with dissimilar roots that means it cannot be added. But you can do the same by making it simpler. Consider the first part of the equation alone which is 5 Root 40. Here 40 can be simplified as 10*4 that means Root10 multiplied by Root 4. 4 is a perfect square and hence you can obviously abridge it to 2.
5 Root (10x*4x)
The equation is now as listed below
5*2 Root (10x) +3 root (10x)
Further 5 and 2 can be multiplied that gives 10 as the result. Now the equation is reduced to 10 Root 10 and similarly the other part is 3 Root 10. You can now add them effortlessly as they are alike!
10 Root (10x) +3 Root (10x)
13Root (10)
There can only be two categories when trying to add radicals and the basics are for sure explained here clearly. The like ones are not at all an issue. Just go a head and add them like any other number. When they are dissimilar, you have to reduce and then proceed with addition.
