Clinical research and scientific evidence is presented to demonstrate that gliadin protects SOD during passage through the stomach, thus allowing absorption of the SOD enzyme once inside the intestine.
Therapeutic value of oral supplementation with melon superoxide dismutase and wheat gliadin combination
In this review, the therapeutic value of oral administration of a combination of melon superoxide dismutase (SOD) and a vegetable polymer (gliadin) is evaluated.
Antioxidants’ are all individual in their properties; in their cellular compartmentalisation, in their ability to cross cell membranes, in the speed with which they undergo chemical reactions (kinetics), in their solubility, in their bioavailability, in their interactions with other molecules and in their ability to act as messengers, sending signals which initiate critical processes.
The extreme toxicity of oxygen is related to its unique capacity of generating free radicals, which have long been recognized as harmful compounds on biological molecules.
Could a photobiological test be a suitable method to assess the anti-oxidant effect of a nutritional supplement (Glisodin)?
The photoprotective effect of Glisodin® was studied by Minimal Erythematous Dose (MED) before and after treatment and its efficacy as a treatment of actinic erythema was assessed by biometrological measurements in 49 healthy subjects .
Clinical trial using healthy volonteers confirmed the preservation of the antioxydant activity of the SOD enzyme after oral administration; an action moreover combined with anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties.
In vivo studies on animals as well as a clinical trial using healthy volonteers confirmed the preservation of the antioxydant activity of the SOD enzyme after oral administration
