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. That’s why we created our dual-ingredient SOD Booster formula.
Chokeberry (A. melanocarpa) Extract
Chokeberries have one of nature’s highest polyphenol counts—greater even than blueberries. Specifically, chokeberries are packed with polyphenol compounds called anthocyanins. Why does this matter? Because chokeberry anthocyanins promote SOD production.
During a two-month study, participants were given 300 mg of the same chokeberry extract in SOD Booster every day. By study’s end, supplementation resulted in a 29% increase in superoxide dismutase. Interestingly, levels of glutathione—another powerful antioxidant—increased as well.
Extramel® melon pulp concentrate
Extramel® is a concentrate of a special variety of a French melon. This melon has a long shelf-life, theorized to be in part because of high SOD activity (and therefore cellular longevity) in the living fruit.
And Extramel® is specially formulated to withstand your body’s digestive juices as well, giving this novel ingredient more time to promote superoxide dismutase production. In pre-clinical models, consuming Extramel® melon concentrate increased SOD levels in various organ tissues.
The health benefits of Extramel® extend beyond cellular antioxidant protection and healthy aging—this novel ingredient appears to support overall quality of life as well. In not one, but two studies, subjects consuming 10 mg a day of this melon concentrate reported decreased feelings of general fatigue and increased feelings of wellbeing and healthy stress response.
SOD Booster contains clinically studied dosages of both chokeberry extract and Extramel® melon concentrate. It is non-GMO, allergen free, gluten free and manufactured in the United States. Promote your body’s natural antioxidant defenses. Add SOD Booster to your regimen today.
