What Exactly is SOD?

Superoxide Dismutase is an enzyme found in all living cells. An enzyme is a substance that speeds up certain chemical reactions in the body. The Superoxide Dismutase that is used as medicine is sometimes taken from cows. Some types of Superoxide Dismutase come from the melon, and some are made in a lab.

How does it work?

Superoxide Dismutase is an enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells. This might prevent damage to tissues. It is being researched to see if it can help conditions where harmful oxygen molecules are believed to play a role in disease.

Health Benefits

Superoxide Dismutase is said to slow up the aging process and reverse signs of aging in the skin.

Scientific research has only provided insight into a few health benefits of Superoxide Dismutase.

There’s also some evidence that taking Superoxide Dismutase in combination with gliadin (a type of protein sourced from wheat) may help protect against damage caused by oxidative stress. In a preliminary study published in Phytotherapy Research in 2004, for instance, tests on animals revealed that treatment with a combination of Superoxide Dismutase and gliadin may help increase antioxidant activity.

Overall, Superoxide Dismutase has been and is still being studied for its numerous health benefits and how it works to reverse oxidative stress in the body. Taking SOD in supplement form via gel or powder, such as REVIVIFY® For Life ensures bio-availability into the blood for maximum effect.
