Skin Concern: Overall skin health, oxidative stress

Skin Type: All skin types

Dr. Sivak's Notes:

The role of SOD is to eliminate free radicals resulting from lipid peroxidation and to prevent the chain reactions that would eventually allow them to reach deeply into the skin.

In our cells, we have our own SODs, but we can help supplement them with topically applied SOD.

• Find this in our ready made Antioxidant Serum and Anti-aging Cream.

Store the SOD in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. This enzyme is very active, and one microgram, one millionth of a gram, will go a very long way.

Each tube (100 mcg / 1 mL) is enough for 4 fl oz of cream, lotion, or serum at approximately 0.0001% concentration (100 mcg in 120 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or a Sea Kelp Coral.

Superoxide Dismutase suspended in ammonium sulphate/water solution.

Superoxide radicals are formed in a number of metabolic reactions, including lipid peroxidation initiated by light or metal ions. This process is the cause of oils “turning” rancid.
 
One of the reasons that superoxide radicals are so dangerous is because they start chain reactions where more and more free radicals are formed, reacting with all cell constituents and wreaking havoc wherever they go. In the human body, the main chain breaking antioxidants are the water soluble Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and the lipid soluble alpha-D-Tocopherol (vitamin E). SOD is a particularly stable enzyme that converts the destructive superoxide radical into a less dangerous form, hydrogen peroxide (which will, in turn, be converted into water and normal oxygen by the enzyme catalase).
