What Can Source Naturals PABA Do For You?
PABA slows Cross-Linking. The cross-linkage theory of aging was proposed by Professor Johan Bjorksten who believed that the aging process was due to cross-links--undesirable bonds induced by excess free radicals that formed between molecules, progressively impairing the function of the body, resulting in aging. PABA appears to slow and in some cases even reverse cross-linking in the protein structures of connective tissues such as collagen.
PABA is also a potent anti-oxidant. It is believed that use of PABA protects cellular membranes and mitochondrial DNA from free radical attack. The mitochondria are the energy-producers of the cells. Mitochondrial degradation results in reduced cellular energy production which causes numerous undesirable physiological conditions, which may include fatigue and the aging process itself.
Other Anti-Aging effects noted in medical literature are:
- Enhanced Flexibility
- Promotes Membrane Fluidity
- Provides Protection against Ozone, Secondhand Smoke and other Air Pollutants
- Alleviates the Inflammation of Arthritis
- Protects Skin from Sunburn and Cancer. It's the active ingredient in most sunscreens today.
- Helps restore Hair color
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
