Optimises antioxidant protection. Helps protect the body and skin from oxidative damage. Boosts the natural defence system. Helps combat ageing.
H2TONIC ingredients :
- Super oxide dismutase (SOD), a natural enzyme in our bodies that is necessary for eliminating oxygen that is toxic to our cells. We call this response the primary defence of the cell but it produces hydrogen peroxide, which can be harmful to the body if it is not quickly transformed.
- There are 4 types of SODs of which 3 are known in mammals : extracellular, intracellular and mitochondrial SOD.
- Copper, zinc and manganese : Each of these SODs contains a different “metal” to promote catalysis : Copper, zinc and manganese are essential trace elements. They ensure proper functioning of cells and act as a vehicle for transporting antioxidants to cells.
We have combined these 3 nutrients that help form and carry the SOD so that it acts at all 3 levels of the cell to offer complete protection.
- Fermented papaya : an excellent protector, it helps combat oxidant stress syndrome (prolonged exposure to sunlight, smoking, alcohol, pollution, intellectual stress, ageing etc.) and has antioxidant activity (more than 20 times greater than vitamin E). It is also often used as a preventive measure. Fermented papaya also has a remarkable immunostimulating capacity (it boosts natural defences). It is therefore recommended as a complement to common medicines.
- Blackcurrant : blackcurrant berries are rich in vitamin A and C and owe their intense colour to complex molecules, anthocyanins, that act as trappers of free radicals. Recognised as an antioxidant, blackcurrant counteracts ageing of blood vessel walls.
- Glutamic acid : glutamic acid is the precursor of glutathione: the master of antioxidants. It protects cell integrity by neutralising free radicals, detoxifies the body and boosts the immune system. Together with other essential amino acids, it enables its synthesis. It is regarded as the most powerful antioxidant.
- Histidine and threonine : these are two amino acids that are used to “transport” SOD into cells. Properties: Helps protect the body and skin from oxidative damage. Boosts the natural defence system. Helps combat ageing.
