WHAT IS SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE (SOD)?
Free radicals are naturally produced by our bodies when exposed to harmful environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke, pollution, household chemicals and highly processed foods. These free radicals can cause damage to our cells in a process known as “oxidative stress”.
One free radical created in the body is called “Superoxide”. To minimise the damage caused by this free radical, our bodies produce an enzyme called “superoxide dismutase”. However, studies show that this enzyme may not work as efficiently in those that have a particular genetic variant.
We have formulated SOD Plus to help support the body in transforming the dangerous “superoxide” radical into neutral molecules that are not harmful to cells. Our formula contains the minerals manganese, zinc and copper, which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and act as precursors to the SOD variations.
High levels of the superoxide radical can disrupt the production of glutathione, which is often referred to as the body’s “master antioxidant”. For this reason, we have incorporated l-glutathione in our formulation.
Finally, we have added n-acetyl-l-cysteine, which can help increase glutathione levels throughout the body.
OUR SOD PLUS SUPPLEMENT
Our SOD Plus supplement provides 275mg of high-quality superoxide dismutase with a vegetable cellulose capsule. We have blended our SOD with zinc, manganese and copper to form a potent antioxidant supplement.
Our SOD Plus supplement comes in a vegetable cellulose capsule, which enables us to avoid the addition of unnecessary chemicals, excipients, binders and coatings that are commonly found in tablet supplements. A vegetable cellulose capsule is designed specifically to break down naturally within the acid of your stomach, ensuring that your body absorbs the nutrients during digestion.
