Cactus Botanics Specializes in SOD

Here at Cactus Botanics, we work exhaustively to research and procure proven natural health ingredients to allow brands to formulate innovative, on-trend products for anyone.

Policosanol is such an ingredient. It is not a new or trendy material, but it has been steadily researched throughout the past two decades.

We have specialized in quite a few ingredients, and superoxide dismutase (SOD) is one that we are very excited about. SOD is one of the most powerful broad-spectrum antioxidants available as a supplement.

Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an unusual enzyme that functions as a powerful master antioxidant. SOD alternately catalyzes the dismutation (or partitioning) of the superoxide radical into ordinary molecular oxygen (O2) and hydrogen peroxide, which keeps the body in homeostasis, functioning and healthy.

As an antioxidant, SOD’s free-radical neutralizing abilities support wide-ranging aspects of health:

• SOD promotes beautiful, healthy skin by combating oxidative stress

• SOD also plays a crucial role in immunity by protecting immune cells from free radical toxicity.

• SOD Reduces chronic inflammation by neutralizing free radicals

• SOD protects blood vessel structure from oxidative stress, promoting healthy blood flow

• SOD protects neurons, allowing for healthy cognitive functions

Cactus Botanics’ SOD stands out from the rest because it is derived from plants. Plant-sourced SOD is an excellent choice for the growing numbers of vegans, and vegetarians.
