Antioxidants are molecules that interfere the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that generates free radicals, leading to chain reactions that damage cells. For years, it has been claimed that alkaline water with antioxidants can increase the antioxidant capacity, and so protect the cells from oxidative stress. But, not many publications have been documented with proven-scientific methods. This study was performed as the first step in a series of laboratory and clinical evaluations for the effects of Alkazone® Electrolyte Antioxidant Mineral Supplement. The data here in this study demonstrated that the ALKAZONE® Electrolyte Antioxidant Mineral Supplement has antiozxidant capacity, and also contributes a protective effect to living cells under oxidative stress. Further work is recommended for more elaborate cellular models, as well as in human clinical studies for anti-inflammatory activity and free radical stress.
