SOD (Superoxide Dismutase) and vitamin C are both antioxidants that are beneficial to the body. They help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules produced during the body’s normal metabolism or when exposed to environmental stressors such as pollution or UV radiation. Free radicals damage cells, proteins and DNA, accelerating senescence and the onset of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
SOD is an enzyme produced naturally by the body that helps neutralise free radicals by catalysing their conversion into non-harmful molecules. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for the human body, which cannot produce it naturally. In addition to its antioxidant action, it is necessary for the growth and repair of body tissues, the formation of collagen, the absorption of iron, the production of certain hormones and neurotransmitters, and to strengthen the immune system.
Thus, Vitamin C and SOD have a complementary action in the fight against oxidative stress.
The properties of SOD and Vitamin C may include :
- Protection against senescence: By reducing the signs of skin ageing caused by free radicals and promoting collagen production.
- Improved cardiovascular health: Vitamin C and SOD help reduce inflammation and protect heart cells from oxidative damage, which contributes to cardiovascular health.
- Immune system strengthening: By protecting immune cells from oxidative damage and stimulating antibody production.
Reduced risk of chronic diseases: By combating oxidative damage that can contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases.
- Immune system strengthening: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from free radicals and strengthens the immune system, allowing for the prevention of infection and disease.
- Improved skin health: Vitamin C and SOD’s antioxidant action protects the skin from sun damage, reduces age spots and promotes collagen production.
