BHT 250mg 500Caps
BHT is an antioxidant widely used to protect food from oxidative damage and frequently used as an anti-aging supplement. Since it is not a natural product, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has prohibited its sale as a supplement (although approving its use in food as a preservative). Our BHT is therefore sold only as a food preservative.
It is nevertheless true that oxidative or free-radical damage affects all living tissues in the body: nerve cells, muscle cells, internal organs, etc. Those who use BHT in an unapproved manner (as a supplement) believe that consuming 500-1000 mg per day, preferably with a fatty or oily food, protects the body from damage caused by aging, metabolism of sugars, and certain contaminants in air, water and food. Some say that it can increase the bioavailability of Vitamin
E. Others even consider it a treatment for herpes. A recent study suggests that BHT lowers the risk of blood clots for diabetics.
