Antioxidants protect your cells from cellular stress. You’ve heard of dietary antioxidants like vitamin E, vitamin C and CoQ10. But the body doesn’t rely entirely on you for antioxidant protection: it can make several of its own antioxidants, with one of the most important of this group being superoxide dismutase—or simply SOD.
Superoxide dismutase is among the body’s most powerful antioxidants, protecting your cells against cellular stress.
SOD Booster Benefits
- Promotes SOD (superoxide dismutase) production
- Helps the body inhibit cellular stress caused by free radicals
- Promotes healthy longevity and cellular function
How Do Antioxidants Like SOD Work?
Antioxidants “quench” free radicals—compounds that cause unwanted cellular reactions. But how do they do it? Certain processes in your body naturally produce free radicals: the compound called “superoxide,” for instance. SOD (superoxide dismutase) breaks down superoxide before it can cause cellular stress. Another potent antioxidant, glutathione, further “quenches” the remaining compounds SOD leaves behind.
The body makes its own antioxidant enzymes: glutathione, catalase and importantly, superoxide dismutase. This powerhouse antioxidant helps protect your cells from cellular stress caused by free radicals. Cellular stress can increase the process of natural aging—and levels of superoxide dismutase production have been shown to decrease with age.2That’s why we created our dual-ingredient SOD Booster formula.
