Superoxide Dismutase


Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an antioxidant enzyme that works as an anti-inflammatory to protect the body against joint problems like rheumatoid arthritis. This powerful antioxidant is produced naturally in the body but levels of SOD begin to decline as we age.

Foods like broccoli, cabbage and wheat contain superoxide dismutase which may boost your levels of the antioxidant or you can take a supplement. Discuss taking a superoxide dismutase (SOD) supplement with your doctor before adding it to your diet.
