Nearly every second, our bodies are attacked by oxygen free radicals, which may damage our tissues and organs, leading to certain health conditions over time. But, the body has a natural defense: glutathione. This nutrient-like molecule is found in every cell and has many important jobs, including maintaining cell protein, supporting immunity and offering powerful antioxidant activity.
Everyone is looking for the secret to successful and lasting weight loss. The unique combination of PGX® and high quality whey protein found in PGX Satisfast™, from Natural Factors®, makes it a very effective weight-loss tool.

The term, “inflammation,” when used in a medical context, refers to a localized protective reaction of tissue to irritation, injury or infection, characterized by pain, redness, swelling and sometimes loss of function. The key feature here is “protective.” Inflammation is designed to protect us against infecting organisms and further damage. During inflammation white blood cells rush to the area to destroy harmful microorganisms and dead cells, preventing the spread of the irritation and permitting the injured tissue to repair itself.
