Title: NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT AND RELATED METHOD FOR ACTIVATING A SUBJECT'S ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEM
Abstract:
A nutritional supplement comprises components (A), (B) and (C), and optionally, additional component(s) (D). The nutritional supplement can activate a subject's antioxidant system, more specifically the subject's antioxidant response element (ARE). In one embodiment, the nutritional supplement comprises: (A) glabridin; (B) licochalcone A; and (C) licorice root flavonoids. In another, the nutritional supplement comprises: (A) a first licorice root extract comprising glabridin; (B) a second licorice root extract comprising licochalcone A; and (C) a third licorice root extract comprising flavonoids. Components (A), (B) and (C) are in a combined amount sufficient to activate the subject's antioxidant system after ingestion. In addition, components (A), (B) and (C) are present in a weight ratio (A:B:C) such that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their separate effects regarding activation of the subject's antioxidant system after ingestion of the nutritional supplement.
