SOD and your GENES

Superoxide radical (O2-) is normally found in your body and actually has benefits in helping you kill pathogens. But, like everything, all must be in proper balance. Superoxide radical is quickly grabbed by a chemical called superoxide dismutase (SOD), an enzyme produced by the SOD gene family. SOD enzyme breaks down O2- into water so it can be excreted from the body.

Problems begin when is either exposed to many toxins and/or has a chronic infection. Worse, if one has defects in the SOD gene, they produce less SOD enzyme and very bad things happen.
