Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant capable of disarming free radicals in the circulation, before they attack our cells. Dr. Linus Pauling, The Father of Vitamin C, was twice awarded the Nobel Prize for his pioneering work. All of Dr. Roberts cardiology patients take Vitamin C. Dr. Roberts has worked extensively with Vitamin C and knows its science.

What are free radicals?
In your body, right now, a battle is going, a battle between the free radical forces of toxic oxidation and your antioxidant defense system. This battle never stops; think of it, and rightly so, as a battle between metabolic good and evil, a struggle for survival.
EDTA (Ethylenediamine tetra-acetic acid) complexes toxic metals and safely clears these toxins, atom by atom, out of your body and into the urine and feces. This is the same EDTA that we use in our Clean Life mouth rinse. Defend Life will deliver EDTA into the blood stream, allowing the EDTA to circulate throughout the body. Clean Life and Defend Life are designed to eliminate toxins that come from the environment we live in --- they are in the air, water, and food we consume.
As do Mercury and Lead, Cadmium gets into our cells, and like an unwelcome guest, Cadmium stays too long (the biological half-life of Cadmium, the time required for post-exposure cellular Cadmium content to fall by 50%, is 10 years). Cadmium binds irreversibly to sulfhydryl groups on the exposed active sites of intracellular enzymes, inactivating them, rendering them functionally useless, gumming up our biochemistry. As with Mercury and Lead, Cadmium has been linked to cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and kidney disease.
