Iridium: Supports healthy neurological, cell and tissue function.
Studies have shown that colloidal Iridium particles have antioxidant properties. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions that may damage cells.
Antioxidants are important because they help to stop the effects of oxidation on cells.

For many years doctors have been using medical treatments that contain radioactive iridium to fight irregular cells. Recently however, a study has shown that a compound of hydrogen and nonradioactive iridium exhibited excellent antitumor activity. This compound demonstrated the ability to interact with DNA and destroy unwanted or damaged cells.
