Human clinical trials show plant extracts can raise the body’s levels of an enzyme which fights the dangerous free radicals responsible for many age-related diseases! “The oxygen that sustains us is also responsible for the aging process itself,” explains this science magazine, since converting oxygen to energy produces most of the body’s free radicals. The S.O.D. enzyme fights this process, but the body’s production of S.O.D. drops with age. The hope is this “programmed” aging process can be chemically shut off!
Since 1984, researchers have known of an internally-produced enzyme which fights the body’s free radicals. One researcher spent 30 years trying to synthesize it, while another using a plant database discovered its production can be stimulated using the right combination of herbs!
