The air we breathe often carries pollutants like particulates, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and sulfur dioxides. Some airborne pollutants aren't stable: they're highly charged, unstable, and reactive, because they have molecular fragments with unpaired electrons -- making them sources of free radicals in our bodies after they're inhaled, which can break up our own molecules (like our cell membranes, and DNA and protein molecules), which can then cause a cascading effect with a proliferation of new free radicals. These oxidants can not only damage the millions of tiny air sacs in the lungs themselves, making it harder to breathe, but also lead to diseases. To counteract that, CanPrev's Healthy Lungs is a blend of premium quality, clinical strength antioxidants and cofactors to help prevent and repair the cellular damage to lung tissue caused by exposure to smoking, environmental pollution or even heavy exercise, and to help support the body's immune system and ability to detoxify pollutants.
