Introducing the newest nutritional antioxidant and free-radical protector: GliSODin! The latest breakthrough in antioxidant supplements, GliSODin® is the first orally effective, plant-source form of superoxide dismutase (SOD), the body's master defense enzyme.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an incredibly clever and dynamic enzyme that spends most of its time living in our body's cellular structure. First discovered in 1968 it has often been referred to as 'the enzyme of life' and not without cause.
If there were a chief antioxidant, this would be it. SOD is the antioxidant responsible for fighting free radicals caused by both our food and our environment.
By catalyzing the breakdown and dissipation of free 'superoxide' radicals into harmless hydrogen molecules, Swanson Ultra Glisodin SOD Gliadin Complex will remove harmful oxygen molecules before they get the chance to radicalise your cell structure.
Whilst this fantastic enzyme is actually present and available in some common foods such as wheat, melons and animal sources, there is a problem. When we attempt to ingest SOD, our own enzymes react by destroying it while it's still in our digestive tract. For years this has been insurmountable. Until now.
By encasing the SOD in a Gliadin shell, Swanson Ultra Glisodin SOD Gliadin Complex is actually protected as it enters the body and is allowed free passage by this clever wheat protein until it reaches its destination. In this unique way, Swanson Ultra Glisodin SOD Gliadin Complex is capable of giving you the nourishment you need without your body stopping you.
Living with a reputation as the 'enzyme of life' requires SOD to put its slender feet into some pretty big shoes. Fortunately for us, those shoes fit nicely. As the very first antioxidant mobilised by the cell for defence, SOD is our primary safeguard against free radicals.
In fact, they do more than that, they also activate the body's production of other antioxidants like glutathione peroxidase and catalase. So they literally rouse the troops for battle.
But what does this mean? Aside from taking on free radical cells and winning, it also means that our skin is better protected from photo-oxidation as Swanson Ultra Glisodin SOD Gliadin Complex can help remove wrinkles, rebuild our tissues and some would even suggest - extend our lives.
