Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is a basic antioxidant enzyme, which in physiological conditions appears in all cells metabolizing oxygen.
SOD constitutes a key element of antioxidant barrier which protects cells from the toxic activity of free oxygen radicals engaged in almost each state of the process of carcinogenesis. Interestingly - decreasing the activity of SOD contributes to disorders in the activity of other antioxidant enzymes.
In dietary supplements we may find plant antioxidant enzymes, i.a. in the form of a patented natural concentrate from melon juice SOD B Extramel® which is the riches source of SOD, promotes well-being and is conducive to proper mental and physical efficiency.
