Ionizing radiation permeates our world
From solar ultraviolet and cosmic radiation to x-rays from medical diagnostic imaging procedures like CT scans, ionizing radiation consists of waves and particles of sufficient energy to affect atoms, “knocking out” electrons to create ions.
Ionizing radiation can produce free radicals with the potential to interact with living tissues and affect cell structures, including fragile DNA.
In addition to limiting and/or avoiding excessive ionizing radiation exposure from various sources (e.g., recurrent transcontinental plane travel and frequent medical diagnostic imaging procedures like CT and/or PET scans) whenever reasonable, additional cellular support during ionizing radiation exposure and free radical generation is helpful for supporting optimal health.
A review of the published scientific literature reveals that certain nutrients may help support and nourish the body's cellular integrity in the context of ionizing radiation.
X-R Shield provides three nutrients that help support and maintain cellular integrity:
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) has multiple constituents contributing to its free radical quenching capacity.1 In clinical research, lemon balm tea was found to support production of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase and catalase, your body's defense against oxidative damage. They provide critical support by inhibiting the formation of free radicals, supporting your body's defense of fragile DNA. Lemon balm tea also maintained oxidative stress status and promoted DNA and cellular stability in hospital workers exposed to ionizing radiation.2 Other research shows lemon balm extract maintains the healthy function of skin cells exposed to UV radiation.3
Ginkgo biloba supports the body's capacity to scavenge reactive oxygen species resulting from ionizing radiation exposure. This further helps support your body's defense system in the context of promoting DNA health.4-8
Preclinical research shows that spirulina increases cellular antioxidant defense against damaging, radiation-induced free radicals.9 It also strengthens and modulates the immune response to tissue damage.10 Pre-clinical evidence suggests spirulina and phycocyanin, a pigment extracted from spirulina, support normal cell function after exposure to ionizing radiation.11-14
If you anticipate being exposed to ionizing radiation, such as through transcontinental plane travel or medical diagnostic imaging procedures, consider taking three capsules of X-R Shield one to three times daily beginning at least five days beforehand and continuing until the bottle is finished.
