Jarrow Formulas SOD Synergy
Jarrow Formulas SOD Synergy is a super antioxidant formula. Jarrow Formulas SOD Synergy is a combination of three vital antioxidants—SOD, CoQ10 and Glutathione—that help control free radicaldamage, which may lead to premature aging. Jarrow Formulas SOD Synergy is a formulation of the human body’s most critical endogenous antioxidants. The combination of potent antioxidants in SOD Synergy provides multi- modal protection against free radical damage to cells in the body.What does SOD Synergy do?
Jarrow FORMULAS SOD Synergy combines our bodies most critical endogenous antioxidants. Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is nature’s most active antioxidant enzyme, as it scavenges superoxide free radicals. GliSODin is the first orally effective form of SOD, clinically demonstrated to increase antioxidant potential. Co-Q10 protects mitochondria membranes and lipoprotein particles (like LDL) from oxidative damage. Co-Q10’s most prominent role is the transport of electrons in energy production. Glutathione is an ubiquitous antioxidant involved in many cellular functions such as detoxification (especially in the liver) and recycling of vitamins E and C. Who Can Benefit From SOD Synergy?
This product is especially relevant for older consumers, whose production of SOD, CoQ10 and glutathione can diminish with age. SOD Synergy is also useful in instances where stress can deplete these important endogenous antioxidants such as after illness,exercise or sun exposure.What Distinguishes this Product?
How Does Each Active Ingredient Function in this Product?

- Glutathione - The most abundant intracellular antioxidant thatalso fulfills many detoxifi cation functions.
Oxygen is a key element for life. However during its utilization, oxygen gives off reactive species called free radicals. If left unchecked, free radicals can cause tissue destruction and premature aging. In health, free radicals are destroyed by natural defense systems called antioxidants. Antioxidants come in many forms. There are vitamin antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, beta-carotene, CoQ10), mineralsimportant to the body’s antioxidant enzymes (selenium, zinc, copper, manganese) and other antioxidant substances (polyphenols, terpenes, carotenoids) found in foods such as grapes, berries, green tea and spices. There are also antioxidant enzymes that are producedby the body, including superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and glutathione peroxidase.SOD, Yes Indeed
SOD is often referred to as the “powerhouse antioxidant” or the “master defense enzyme.” It is found in nearly all human cells, but production diminishes with age. SOD neutralizes superoxide (O2-), the most dangerous oxygen free radical. Without antioxidant enzymes, like SOD, oxidative stress develops that can lead to respiratory, cognitive, cardiovascular, vision and joint problems. Chronic illness or toxin exposure can put strain on these endogenous antioxidantlevels, including SOD. Unti:" ":wheat matrix protein. Without the protein to protect the SOD, it would lose all activity upon ingestion. The protein matrix may also facilitate SOD uptake in the intestine. GliSODin has been clinically tested in hospitals with positive results.Supplementation with GliSODin helped control carotid artery thickness. Increasing the body’s reserves of SOD can stimulate defenses against free radicals and promote immune health. GliSODin is recommended when natural protection is needed against free radicals. This includes older individuals and anyone subjected to external stresses, such as illness, sun exposure andintense physical exercise.Co-starring CoQ10
CoQ10 is essential in all human cells. Besides its importance in energy production, CoQ10 scavenges free radicals in membranes, protecting membrane lipids, proteins and mitochondrial DNA from oxidative damage. It also helps regenerate vitamin E for optimum antioxidant benefits. Heart muscle contains high concentrations of CoQ10 to help provide energy and CoQ10’s heart health benefits are further amplifi ed during exercise. CoQ10 also helps cell membranesremain flexible and function properly. Healthy people and cells make CoQ10, but it is also critically procured from the diet. Despite these sources it is well established that CoQ10levels diminish with age, certain drugs (particularly statins) and chronic disease. Symptoms such as fatigue and stiffening tissues are often partly attributable to insuffi cient CoQ10. Further cardiovascular problems (high cholesterol, blood pressure) and poor intestinalabsorption make matters worse. For these reasons as we age, CoQ10 needs must often be met with nutritional supplementation.The Insider: Glutathione
Glutathione is a small antioxidant molecule that is present in high concentrations inside cells. It also functions as a detoxifi cation agent and recycler of vitamins E and C. It can help repair damage caused by stress, pollution, radiation, infection, drugs, poor diet, aging, injury,trauma, and burns. Glutathione exists in chemically reduced and oxidized states. Yet inmost tissues, the reduced state predominates, especially in the liver. The reduced form is prevalent for a reason; it is the active antioxidant and detoxifying species. In the liver, glutathione acts as an antioxidant, immune booster and heavy metal detoxifi er. Researchers havestudied glutathione for the treatment of a whole host of conditions. Many conditions are associated with decreased levels of glutathione, however it is undetermined whether this is caused by, or results from, the malady.About Jarrow Formulas
