consists of a propriety set of small protein fragments (peptides) that can be readily absorbed by the body . These bioactive peptides have been shown to have the following functions:
- AminoAct increases the body's overall antioxidant production within one week through the Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) enzyme. SOD is the first line of defense by the body to combat free radicals, thus minimizing cellular damages.
- AminoAct stimulates the production of a small hormone in the stomach called Ghrelin. Ghrelin is known to increase appetite.
- AminoAct reduces inflammation by lowering TNF-alpha, a pro-inflammatory factor in the blood.

Antioxidants Alleviates Chemotherapy Side Effects
As a person processes food for energy, the body produces free radicals. These free radicals damage DNA, proteins and lipids, and are believed to contribute to aging, cancer and many other diseases. Cancer patients are reported to have higher levels of oxidative stress1),2)
and some tumor tissues may contain or secrete free radicals3)
. These free radicals cause cells to breakdown and promote mutation.
Furthermore, research has shown that chemotherapy causes the body to have elevated levels of free radicals, and after chemo treatment, the body is depleted of antioxidants. As a result, vital organs, such as lungs, heart, kidney and liver are often overburdened and injured after chemotherapy treatment. This toxic side effect slows down the health recovery4),5),6)
A recent clinical review7)
of 19 clinical studies indicated that antioxidant supplement resulted in either increased survival times, increased treatment responses, or both. Compared to the control group, patients taking antioxidants also had less side effects from toxicity.
