One of my clients muscle tested for SOD for a chronic yeast problem.
I don't have experience with this product.

Any input about SOD is appreciated.

Thanks so much,
Diana Bragg

This was sent out by NSP Health Sciences. It clearly explains the benefits of NSP SOD W/Gliadin over the competition.

Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)
SOD is a natural part of the body's detoxification system. It is present in every cell in the body and is part of immune response and cell maintenance. Not only does this enzyme play an important role in neutralizing superoxide radicals into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide, it may help prevent age-related decline and maintain neurological health. It is commonly injected locally in joints for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. This use has been very effective for joint ailments in horses.

SOD plays an important role in the immune response by protecting leukocytes and macrophages. In doing so, SOD prevents the damage to these cells. SOD supplementation has been shown to stimulate innate immunity by triggering the production of immune factors. SOD supports the structural and respiratory systems and is a superb antioxidant. Very little information exists on the oral uses of SOD. We know that it is partially digested by acids in the stomach, and that enteric-coated SOD capsules are not well absorbed either. This led many to conclude that SOD, while beneficial in the body, could not be administered orally. NSP learned that when SOD was bound to a protein complex, it was not only protected through the stomach but it was also absorbed in the small intestine through M-cells found in the Peyer's patches which are part of the lymphatic (immune) system. This complex is called glisodin and it is made from a proprietary mixture of melon extract (SOD) and wheat extract (gliadin). This protein complex allows the SOD to be effectively absorbed. Other SOD preparations are poorly absorbed even if they are not destroyed in the stomach acid. The combination of SOD with gliadin clearly separates NSP SOD from competitors.

NSP has a fact sheet on this product on their website. This is the write-up when you click on the name: SOD with Gliadin SOD with Gliadin [Structural, Immune, Nervous]. SOD, also known as superoxide dismutase, is an enzyme that also functions as an antioxidant. Every cell in the body uses SOD to combat damaging free radicals produced by normal cellular reactions. As we age, our bodies produce less SOD, which may lead to aging and the possible development of degenerative diseases. Gliadin protects SOD from digestion until it reaches the intestinal tract, where it can be absorbed. It has been shown to increase absorption of SOD by up to 57 percent. SOD with Gliadin is beneficial for joint structure and function, respiratory system concerns, vision problems, cellular abnormalities, aging and neurological and cardiovascular disorders. Two capsules provide 300 mg SOD. Take 1 capsule twice daily on an empty stomach. Stock No. 1893-8 (60)

SOD with Gliaden is an antioxidant enzyme. It is a NSP product. Dr. Duarte on the product focus call said everyone should have some bottles of SOD with Gliaden as it is proven to avoid radiation disease. He gave the example of people who must have radiation treatment, and the damage that treatment usually does to the skin because it gets an overdose. Those on SOD with Gliaden do not get damage to their skin. It remains pliable and soft. I know my parents have both had radiation treatment and both of them had stiff skin afterwards. On both it eventually went away, but it was like a burn. He was asked about Potassium iodide for radiation and he stated clearly that that would only protect the thyroid gland, but would not help the rest of the body, and that SOD with Giaden would.
