Super Oxide Dismutase


What does Super Oxide Dismutase do?

In short, it neutralizes free radicals. This keeps our skin balanced and free from oxidation. As too many free radicals can damage our cells. Free radicals occur in the skin as a result of sun exposure or other environmental pollutants, where they immediately begin moving from cell to cell, damaging many of them and even causing others to start to replicate rapidly and unchecked. In some situations, this is the beginning of skin cancer. Super Oxide Dismutase forms a protective layer in between the dermis cells and the free radicals. This means that they do not have a chance to damage the skin before the natural processes of the face can clear them away.

When we are young, our body produces plenty of its own Super Oxide Dismutase. As we age, however, the skin is less able to produce this vital nutrient, resulting in skin that is easy to damage. It's the same concept as a piece of fruit ripening. Think of Super Dioxide in melons. (Yes, this is the Cindy Crawford Meaningful Beauty Infomercial.) When the fruit is fresh, it is crisp and vibrant. Let it sit for a day or two and it is still great, but may begin to wilt. Let a week or so go by and you will start to see the effects of the fruit becoming over-ripe. Eventually the fruit spoils and looses it's youthfulness. By the end of the week, the fruit has lost its stores of Super Oxide Dismutase. An application of a product that contains this ingredient can help mitigate this problem. This is why it is often included in anti-aging treatments. Because it protects the skin from free radicals, it often gives skin the nutrients it needs. A complexion that lacks basic building blocks can be the cause of most signs of aging, from spots to wrinkles.
