Contrary View: OSR an Industrial Decontaminant?
From the CTI Science website:
What Is OSR?
OSR#1TM is an antioxidant product that scavenges free radicals and helps maintain healthy glutathione levels.
Free radicals are destructive molecules that can accumulate in people who do not eat a healthy diet. They can compromise the normal function of each cell in the body. This in part explains why a healthy diet is essential to good overall health.
Glutathione is a compound that is naturally made by each cell in the body. Its role is to help each cell repair itself using the body's own natural mechanisms. Glutathione is one of the most important tools the body has to maintain health. People who do not eat a healthy diet often have difficulty maintaining a healthy glutathione level.
OSR#1TM scavenges free radicals, meaning that it binds them, shuts them down, and discards them. Whereas the purpose of all antioxidants is to scavenge free radicals, OSR#1TM has been shown to be extremely proficient in its ability to do so. Because OSR#1TM scavenges free radicals with significant proficiency, it helps relieve glutathione of its responsibility to do so, thereby helping to maintain a healthy glutathione level.
OSR#1TM, unlike other antioxidants, is lipid-soluble, also known as fat-soluble. Other antioxidants are water-soluble. This is an important distinction, because lipid-soluble compounds like OSR#1TM pass easily through other lipids, whereas water-soluble compounds, like other antioxidants, do not. Because every cell of the body has a cell wall made of lipid (called the phospholipid membrane), this distinction becomes profoundly important. In other words, OSR#1TM, being lipid soluble, has the capacity and affinity for passing through cell membranes and can get inside of each cell where free radicals exist. Antioxidants that are water-soluble cannot get into the inside of each cell and therefore, even if they are competent scavengers, will not be given an opportunity to scavenge free radicals because they cannot get physically to the place the free radicals exist inside the cells.
