Superoxide Dismutase Supplements, or SOD Supplements, are natural antioxidants that prevent oxidative stress. Oxidative stress happens through poor diet, pollutants in the air and water, pharmaceutical drugs and other environmental factors. Our bodies’ natural defences sometimes can’t keep up with the free radicals that can generate disease-causing oxidation to our cells and DNA. If you find your immune system is not as strong as it should be, but don’t want to resort to prescription medications, try Greenfilled Superoxide Dismutase Supplements for all natural, sustainable protection against free radicals!
Health Benefits of Superoxide Dismutase Supplement
There are a number of benefits that come from taking Superoxide Dismutase Supplements. Some of these benefits include creating an environment in your body where free radicals can’t thrive and cause damage to cells, DNA or other important parts of the body. This happens by helping our body’s own defences keep up with the free radicals which can cause disease-causing oxidation. Specifically, they provide protection from inflammation related diseases such as emphysema, cancer and arthritis. This process increases over time, so the earlier you start managing it, the better. Prevention is better than cure!
SODs can also help to maintain a healthy heart by preventing plaque buildup on artery walls and help prevent atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) through inhibition of LDL cholesterol synthesis. Not that this means you can forget about enjoying a healthy diet, but it does mean your heart is in better shape to enjoy exercise! As with all supplements, the benefits come from combining with a healthy lifestyle in order to get the very best out of them. In many ways, the benefits of Superoxide Dismutase are a virtuous cycle. Feel better. Make better choices. Do more. Feel better!
Putting the ‘super’ in Superoxide Dismutase
Superoxide Dismutase Supplements can also help strengthen the immune system, making it less reactive to external factors. This is because they have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect on cells and tissues that helps inhibit NFκB activity in those cases where inflammation does happen, due to infection or other causes. What’s more, SOD supplements protect skin from UV-induced inflammation and damage by providing antioxidant protection. This is great if you’re out there in the surf, like we are here in San Francisco. Got to protect against those rays! In fact, whenever you’re out and about, protect your skin!
In addition to all of this, SOD supplements help to maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract by preventing oxidative stress in the lining of the gut wall. On one hand this leads to increased permeability (leaky gut syndrome) which can lead to autoimmune disease, while also potentially increasing risk for colon cancer or even ulcerative colitis. SODs also ensure a healthy nervous system by reducing oxidative stress to the brain and spinal cord. This provides protection from neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, as well as protecting the liver and kidneys! The list goes on and on in terms of the benefits.
Main food sources of Superoxide Dismutase
The main sources of Superoxide Dismutase from food are found in spinach and kale – both excellent foods to eat in order to get all the goodness they offer, so be sure to eat your fill of those! You could say, get your fill of greens and also get Greenfilled. But there are a whole range of other sources, including but not limited to:
- ginger root
- green peppers
- garlic cloves
- blackberries and blueberries
So, make sure that you fill your boots, while also supplementing your diet with Greenfilled Superoxide Dismutase Supplements. Combined, you’ll be in the best possible position to receive all of the amazing benefits SODs have to offer! As always, it’s all about being balanced in mind, body and spirit. You can’t rely on one thing to solve everything, but by taking a holistic approach to your diet, you can really make some fantastic changes quickly and it doesn’t have to cost the earth either. Being informed is half the battle, and then you can tailor your requirements to your busy, active lifestyle.
SOD Supplement Antioxidant
If you want to get the benefits of antioxidant protection from Superoxide Dismutase Supplements, there are a number of ways that these can be taken. You can swallow them whole or break open capsules to sprinkle on food – and they will remain stable until about 30 minutes after opening! They also dissolve well in liquid so if you have trouble swallowing tablets, try mixing them in a smoothie with some almond milk. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to actually consuming your supplements. Within reason, do whatever is right for you. The freedom to choose is part of the Greenfilled adventure.
What is TetraSOD® and why is it so important?
TetraSOD® is the key ingredient in our Superoxide Dismutase Supplements – containing the most potent concentration of this natural compound on the market. Pretty amazing. TetraSOD® is an innovative, lipid-soluble form of the SOD molecule. This means that it can be absorbed by cells so they don’t have to rely on natural production from your body’s immune system or diets rich in antioxidants, like food with greens and flavonoids, such as blueberries! TetraSOD® is also more stable than alternatives, so it’s easier on your stomach and doesn’t irritate your gut wall lining. Because that’s the last thing you’d want, right? Of course. Ultimately, it’s about easy, convenient nutrition, so you can get out and live your best life.
Is marine phytoplankton the best source of SOD?
You might be asking yourself if marine phytoplankton is the best source of SOD. The answer is a resounding yes! Marine phytoplankton is a natural source of SOD, containing up to 20 times more antioxidants than land-based plants. You can also be confident that the marine phytoplankton we use at Greenfilled is 100% organic, harvested from our specialist facility. This means it’s completely protected from potential pollutants that might be found in other brands’ products, that may come directly from the ocean. While we love the ocean, we know that replicating marine phytoplankton in a controlled environment is better for the quality of our products – same benefits, just a modern process to create our Superoxide Dismutase Supplements.
