|Definition:||As an enzyme, SOD has particular value as an antioxidant that can help
to protect against cell destruction. It has the distinct ability to
neutralize superoxide, one of the most damaging free radical
substances in nature. Like so many other protective compounds which
naturally occur in the body, it decreases with age, making cells much
more vulnerable to the oxidants which cause aging and disease. It
occurs naturally in broccoli, Brussels's sprouts, wheat grass and in the
majority of green plants.
