Pro-oxidants are also made when the body is exposed to toxins, UV radiation, infection, and inflammation. These pro-oxidants can damage our DNA, organs, and tissues. Basically, when the body is challenged, injured, or burdened in any way, it makes dangerous pro-oxidants that have the potential to cause long term damage and disease.
Luckily, our bodies have compounds called antioxidants that neutralize the pro-oxidants and heal the damage they may have caused. This microscopic balancing act between damage and repair using pro-oxidants and antioxidants is called redox balance1.
An antioxidant is anything that can neutralize and clean up the mess caused by pro-oxidants. These include vitamins like A, C and E, detoxifiers in the liver like glutathione, and compounds from plants like flavonoids and phenols. We get most of our antioxidants from vegetables, as well as some from fruits, spices, herbs and proteins.

Healthy nitrates found in Salus Red Beet Crystals convert into nitric oxide in the body, which dilates and relaxes blood vessels to improve circulation. As a result, studies show that nitrates from beetroot juice significantly lower blood pressure and improve arteriole stiffness to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
