Did You Know That One I.U. of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) Eliminates Billions of Free Radicals?
SOD Antioxidants provide crucial support for health and wellness because they help protect our healthy cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
If too many free radicals overwhelm our bodies’ antioxidant defenses, then a situation of “oxidative stress” develops—which can damage our cells, tissues, organs, and bodily systems.
Free radicals—and the oxidative stress and damage that they cause—are implicated in situations including aging, stress, fatigue, skin care, weight management, sports recovery, immunity, healthy sleep, cardiovascular health, cognitive health, and inflammation. In fact, they have been shown to have a role in over 100 health issues!
Antioxidants, which fight free radicals, can be classified as either “primary antioxidants” or “secondary antioxidants”—SOD (superoxide dismutase) is a primary antioxidant. Primary antioxidants are our bodies’ primary and most powerful defense against free radicals and oxidative stress.
“Secondary antioxidants” include vitamin C, polyphenols, selenium, and alpha lipoic acid—they are also important antioxidants, but relatively less potent than primary antioxidants in their antioxidant capacity.
SOD antioxidants neutralize the most common free radicals in the body, which are named superoxide radicals. In fact, each and every I.U. of superoxide dismutase eliminates billions of free radicals in the body.
The 1969 discovery of superoxide dismutase has been called “the most important discovery of modern biology never to win a Nobel Prize.”
The benefits of supplementing with SOD antioxidants are backed by solid scientific research. Recent scientific studies have shown that supplementing with superoxide dismutase supports energy, mood, sleep, concentration, memory, sports performance and recovery, immunity, and cardiovascular health.
Superoxide Dismutase is also one of the things that make Oxylent’s vitamin packs such a unique daily multivitamin. In addition to a full panel of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and amino acids, Oxylent contains 20 I.U. of SOD antioxidants—all in one delicious drink!
Not all forms of superoxide dismutase on the market are of equal quality, and the patented form of superoxide dismutase in Oxylent reflects the same commitment to superior quality that we hold for all of our ingredients. Our superoxide dismutase is naturally derived from a proprietary variety of melon and is GMO-free, solvent-free, allergen-free, gluten-free, and backed by scientific research.
