GliSODin® is the first patented technology which contains a bioactive form of superoxide dismutase (SOD) derived from the French melon, Cucumis melo, and is protected by a gliadin biopolymer layer. For this reason, SOD will reach the small intestine where it can be effective in the body. Found in all living species, SOD is also known as the “enzyme of life.”
As GliSODin® is an antioxidant enzyme, it has the ability to target many free radicals and to reduce oxidative stress compared to any other antioxidant. GliSODin® does this by starting an ongoing cascade of reactions to neutralize free radicals, whereas all secondary antioxidants will essentially give up their electron and die in the process. This makes the efficiency of SOD much more valuable for fighting free radicals than any other antioxidant. The antioxidant free radical ratio for secondary antioxidants is 1:1 compared to 1:1,000,000 for primary antioxidants such as GliSODin®.
