What is SOD® Superoxide Dismutase Supplement?
The SOD Capsules 500 IU are Natural Vegetarian Superoxide dismutase supplements derived from Phytoplankton, horseradish plant, and muskmelon extract containing SOD. Musk Melon may protect the SOD enzymes from degradation in the digestive tract and may support an increase in circulating antioxidants.
SOD can be helpful in joint, gastrointestinal, mitochondrial, skin, hair, and respiratory health. An ideal supplement for age management and conditions related to premature aging.
Superoxide dismutase (or SOD) is an enzyme found in the cells of living organisms. It breaks down potentially harmful oxygen molecules, defending the body from the effects of oxidative stress, which makes it a potent antioxidant. In the medical field, studies are underway to see if it can be used as a therapeutic treatment for numerous diseases.
In addition to its antioxidant benefits, superoxide dismutase has shown promise for its calming properties for the skin. Emerging science shows that superoxide dismutase extracted from certain plants might even have UV-protective abilities when applied to the skin.
Superoxide dismutase is the most powerful antioxidant enzyme in the body. It’s crucial to cellular health because it’s the first roadblock that free radicals – unstable atoms that cause premature aging – encounter when they attempt to stir up trouble. If free radicals are the burglars crawling through your window, think of superoxide dismutase as your home alarm system. At the first hint of free radicals, the superoxide dismutase alarm sounds and sends the police, or, in this case, free radical-destroying antioxidants like Vitamin C and Glutathione.
While the police are on their way, superoxide dismutase is hard at work scaring off free radicals by breaking them down into less destructive molecules (hydrogen peroxide and oxygen). This sets the stage for other enzymatic antioxidants to finish the elimination process. And if it weren’t for this alarm, the other antioxidants in your body wouldn’t come to the rescue nearly as fast. In fact, the entire process of eliminating free radicals would be 10,000x slower, leaving a lot more time for cellular damage.
Superoxide dismutase production significantly declines with age, and to top it off, getting older means that free radical formation is at an all-time high. What we’re trying to say here is, we all need a little extra protection—free radicals are always on the loose. Incorporating superoxide dismutase into your skincare routine won’t stop burglars from trying to break in, but it will stop them from taking away smooth, healthy skin.
By protecting your skin from free radical damage, superoxide dismutase prevents visible signs of aging. Even better, it helps repair signs of aging. It does this by promoting a youthful complexion, and encouraging resilient skin. It also fights hyperpigmentation from sun damage, age spots, and acne marks, for an even-toned complexion. It’s anti-inflammatory, too, so it’s very helpful for de-puffing under the eyes.
