For the most part x-factor is fine with the anti-oxidants. AA (arachidonic acid) works through the COX-2 enzyme (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COX-2_selective_inhibitor) however so you should probably avoid dosing together for best results. Green tea (contained in AP's anti-ox complex) is a natural COX-2 inhibitor but it doesnt contain so much that you would see a drastic decrease in X-Factor results (imho).
This is a Q&A from an X-Factor Faq:
12. Do I need to eliminate everything that is anti-inflammatory?
No. The only anti-inflammatory in the literature (so far) known to have adverse effects on x factor's benefit in skeletal muscle are NSAIDs (or its herbal equivalent white willow bark) due to their direct effect on the COX enzyme. Indirect anti-inflammatory products (which many products claim as a side benefit) most likely have no effect on what x factor does. Actually some of the benefits of arachidonic acid appear to be through reduction of systemic oxidative stress/insulin levels (provided the muscle is active) which ironically may actually reduce COX-2 in non muscle tissues. So all this stuff can be in the same ballpark.
