GliSODin® (Superoxide dismutase/Gliadin complex) is made from the combination of a SOD extracted from melon (Cucumis melo) as the active ingredient and wheat (Triticum vulgare) gliadin as the carrier which protects the enzyme from breaking down against the effects of the stomach acid.
The powerful natural antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD) acts at the very source of the chain reaction which results in the production of reactive oxygen species; it constitutes therefore the first body guard line and the main defense mechanism against free radicals. Several studies have confirmed the preservation of the antioxidant activity of the SOD enzyme following oral consumption; in addition anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties have also been attributed. GliSODin® is deemed as an effective oral UV-protective supplement according to recent clinical trials recently conducted (2005).
GliSODin® is the first body guard line and the main defense mechanism against free radicals. This powerful antioxidant promotes anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory action. It is a clinically proven oral UV-protective supplement.
Beta-carotene is considered a conditionally essential nutrient. It is metabolized tovitamin A (retinol) in the body and has been found to possess antioxidant activity. It appears to exert immunomodulatory, anticarcinogenic and antiatherogenic activities as well.
Beta-carotene has been found to inhibit the growth of some malignant cells. Several observational epidemiological studies have shown an inverse association between dietary beta-carotene intake and certain types of cancer such as prostate cancer and lung cancer. Beta-carotene supplements have significantly inhibited oral leucoplakia as well as other precancerous lesions including buccal cell micronuclei in subjects at risk of oral cancer.
Flower pollen extracts
Flower pollen extracts as been widely studied in a variety of clinical applications as a result of its properties as antioxidant. It is therefore an indicated treatment in the fight against free radicals which have been shown to cause cellular destruction. After ingestion, antioxidants neutralize and destroy free radicals helping thus detoxify and protect the body. The evidence suggests that flower pollen extracts may have an enhancing effect of the immune system and immunity in addition to an anti-inflammatory action.
Silicon is a key element in this combination product positively affecting the Skin and Integumentary System. It is known that chronic exposure of the skin to sunlight causes damage to the underlying connective tissue with a loss of elasticity and firmness. Silicon derived compounds have been suggested to have beneficial effects on skin and similar components of the integumentary system such as hair and nails. Recent studies showed that the ingestion of silicon supplements may improve the thickness of the dermis surface and skin mechanical properties as well as brittleness of hair and nails.
Polyunsaturated and unsaturated fatty acids
Polyunsaturated and unsaturated fatty acids have been found to exhibit beneficial effects on a variety of skin conditions such as erythema and psoriasis. It has been suggested that an increase in the dietary intake of fish oil would be a useful treatment to counteract the exaggerated inflammation in psoriasis. Unsaturated acids on the other hand have been shown to prevent growth bacteria on the skin and contribute to skin acidity. High intake of monounsaturated fat appears to be negatively associated with photoaging.
