Why SODzyme with GliSODin and Wolfberry
Your body’s supply of youthful antioxidant enzymes rapidly decreases with age.1-5 Life Extension’s SODzyme® with GliSODin® & Wolfberry combines three ingredients that help to replenish the body’s supply of SOD, thus enhancing its natural antioxidant defenses considerably.
The suggested daily intake of three capsules provides 2,000 mg of SODzyme®, a proprietary plant-based extract. In a study of 12 middle-aged volunteers of both sexes who took 2,000 mg of SODzyme® daily for two weeks, SODzyme® boosted serum SOD levels by 30% on average, and reduced hydrogen peroxide by 47%.6
The SODzyme® formula also contains GliSODin®, a patented, plant-derived form of SOD. In an animal study, small amounts of orally administered GliSODin® raised blood levels of SOD by 89% and increased catalase levels by 171%!7
Life Extension’s SODzyme® supplies 100 mg of a standardized wolfberry fruit extract. Wolfberry is found to have one of the highest ORAC values of all fruits, and is effective in scavenging superoxide radicals and preventing their formation. When given to patients aged 64–80, wolfberry increased blood levels of SOD by 48% and lowered blood lipid peroxides by 65% in only 10 days!8
