Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme chockfull of antioxidants that help the body to fight the visible signs of aging. SOD`s actions against free radicals are highly beneficial. This antioxidant is used by every cell in the body. For these reasons and more, Dave Sandoval was determined to incorporate this super nutrient into our bio skin care to help make users beautiful inside and out. This ingredient is one of the main reasons our bio regen capsules are so effective!
Superoxide dismutase has also been shown to protect against oxidative stress-induced cell death, according to a study published in an issue of Phytotherapy Research (wws3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/jhome/12567).
According to WebMD.com, “Superoxide dismutase is an enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells, which might prevent damage to tissues. It is being researched to see if it can help conditions where oxygen molecules are believed to play a role in disease.”
So, why should we supplement with SOD?
1) The natural process of oxygen metabolism results in the development of reactive oxygen species (ROS).
2) To protect the body from highly toxic ROS, the body has acquired anti-oxidative stress mechanisms, or an antioxidant defense system.
3) These anti-oxidative stress mechanisms are localized in tissues and inside the cells where ROS are generated.
4) If the amount of ROS exceeds the limit of the antioxidant defense system of the body, the damage to the cells results in not only aging but also in some pathological processes.
5) The powerful natural antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) acts at the very source of the chain reaction that produces (ROS).
6) SOD therefore constitutes the first and one of the main links of the defense process against free radical damage.
Purium’s bio regen™ capsules effectively help accelerate the regeneration, rejuvenation, and rehydration of emerging skin cells, meaning you will have younger, fresher, less damaged skin as it emerges on the surface. Our proprietary blend of 200x organic aloe concentrate, astaxanthin and all-natural superoxide dismutase is unlike anything else on the market today.
Superoxide dismutase is also an ingredient in Purium’s bio cleanser™ because it topically helps your skin as well. According to Livestrong.com, “Doctors use creams containing superoxide dismutase to support the healing of burns and wounds and reduce some types of pigment disorders.”
Our bio cleanser helps quicken the cell renewal that is slowed by free radicals in our everyday environment and sun damage. For that reason, we incorporated vitamin C, jojoba, kelp extract, superoxide dismutase, and Astaxanthin into our cleanser to tighten, brighten, and renew our cells. Our key ingredients are chockfull of antioxidants that will help keep your skin looking more youthful.
