Bluebonnet's Super Fruit Cantaloupe Melon Fruit Extract Capsules provide the first orally effective, vegetarian form of superoxide dismutase (SOD) from cantaloupe melon in a gliadin complex, known as GliSODin. SOD is considered the body's master cellular defense enzyme that helps neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals. Each capsule provides 100 mg of the SOD/Gliadin Complex, which delivers 100 IU of SOD. GliSODin uses a proprietary process of integrating SOD with gliadin, a wheat protein fraction, to help protect SOD from degradation in the digestive tract. Available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Kosher vegetable capsules, wheat maltodextrin, vegetable cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate.
Free of milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts and soybeans.
Also free of corn, yeast, barley, rice, sodium and sugar.
Caution: Do not take this product if you are allergic to wheat or gluten.

I was interested in the prospect of a supplement that had the potential to reverse my graying hair by reducing peroxides in my body that could be bleaching out my hair from the inside out. I took GliSODin for 6 months, which was ample time to determine that my gray hair did not change back to brown. More disturbing to me was that after taking it for 3 months, I was diagnosed with an anal fissure. I did not have a history of them, nor of any kind of gluten intolerance or coeliac disease (a reaction to gliadin, which GliSODin contains). I might have considered it mere coincidence, but the fissure did not heal while I continued to take the GliSODin for an additional 3 months. I was waiting to see if it would effect my gray hair. After quitting the GliSODin, the fissure quickly healed. I concede that my experience is anecdotal and I could just be unusual in my reaction, I am confident it was a result of the GliSODin. I have taken super oxide dimutase before without difficulty, so I attribute my unfortunate reaction to the gliadin. It is embarrassing to talk about it even anonymously, but the colorectal surgeon I saw was recommending surgery, so I wanted to share my experience in hopes of helping others avoid similar problems.
