A: The best time is in the morning on an empty stomach, and waiting 30 minutes to eat. This insures the highest peak of the PCA in your bloodstream.
A: Our users do it daily 30 minutes before eating in the morning.
A: It is a matter of personal discretion over what period of time one would take this daily pill. Some users report that they have taken for
over one year.
A: Our recommended dose is one tablet or 500 mg per day. However experimental evidence in mammals shows that 500 to 800 mg/kilogram body weight is not toxic. Converted to humans that may weigh 150 kilograms would be a minimum of 75,000 mg. The two capsules would be only 1000 milligrams, far below the 75,000 which still would not be toxic.
A: First of all, your health care provider is the one with the best judgement for your health. Also note that two capsules would be safe, being below the amount that could possibly be problematic.
A: They are chemicals that fight the process in cells, called oxidation. One simple but not exact way to understand this is to see what happens to metal when it oxidizes; it get a coat of irregular material on the surface. In the human body the oxidation process is injurious to the cells and the subject’s health. The main source of anti-oxidants may be found in the human diet, especially one loaded with fruits and vegetables. Other sources are vitamins C and E, beta carotene and plant nutrients like protocatechuate.

A: In simple language they are a chemical that can attach to a potentially destructive free radical and neutralize the damaging effect to the body that may cause disease and or aging.
A: Protocatechuate is another name for protocatechuic acid (PCA). This is a nutraceutical, a food supplement. It is the primary metabolite of the dyes found in fruits and vegetables; i.e. cherries, blueberries, onion skin and even white wine.
A: PCA is an anti-oxidant and such has the effect neutralizing oxygen radicals that result in less than optimal health in the body. In addition, PCA has powerful anti-inflammation properties, even 10 times greater than Vitamin E.
A: There is supporting evidence in the medical literature that there are many health benefits.
For your convenience in addition to your independent search you may link to one or more of the following:
A: Yes. It is not in stores at present time.
A: Good question. The inherent value expressed in customer comments has not made giving it away necessary.
A: No, you will not have subsequent automatic monthly billings. We do one time credit card billing, no continuum.
A: It has been for the early adopters depending upon the person and what they have determined to use this anti-oxidant for. However, some users may want to continue use.
A: That is a decision to be made by a qualified health care professional. In general PCA may be used in addition to present treatments. There are two exceptions. Since it is known to minimally reduce blood sugar levels, a diabetic would need medical advice. In addition, it is known to minimally reduce blood clotting levels similar to aspirin. For those taking baby aspirin or other blood thinners, you should speak with your qualified health care professional.
A: Since this antioxidant lowers blood sugar a small amount, one would be advised to consult with their health care provider.
A: Yes. It is always best to be under a physician’s care and council.
A: As mentioned above, since it is known to minimally reduce blood sugar levels, a diabetic would need medical advice. In addition, it is known to minimally reduce blood clotting levels similar to aspirin.
A: Yes, but not likely practical. For instance to get 500 milligrams in blueberries you could eat 18 pounds at once. Another way that might appeal to some is to drink 3 liters of white wine.
