What is Glisodin?
Glisodin is a cantaloupe melon extract rich in vegetal superoxide dismutase (SOD) covered by polymeric films of wheat matrix gliadin. This is the only proven orally effective delivery of SOD.Superoxide dismutases are a class of enzymes that catalyze the dismutation of superoxide into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. As such, they are an important antioxidant defense in nearly all cells exposed to oxygen. One of the exceedingly rare exceptions is Lactobacillus plantarum and related lactobacilli, which use a different mechanism.(This SOD/gliadin complex is also referred to as glisodine and oxykine.)
What are the benefits of Glisodin?
Glisodin has been shown to:
Promote endogenous production of SOD, Catalase & Glutathione Peroxidase (Gpx)
Inhibit oxidative stress
Inhibit lactic acid accumulation during exercise
Inhibit UV oxidative stress
Promote immune modulation
Inhibit vascular inflammation
GliSODin® can be taken either in short-term intervals or for long-term daily supplementation.
Short-term intervals:- To take advantage of all the protective and healing effects of GliSODin®, it is recommended to take four courses of supplementation per year.
