Superoxide Dismutase Description
Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that can catalyze the conversion of superoxide into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide through a disproportionation reaction. It is widely present in all kinds of animals, plants, microorganisms, is an important antioxidant, and protects cells exposed to oxygen.
Skin aging and damage are important characteristics of human aging, and human aging is a consequence of obstacles caused by the accumulation or removal of reactive oxygen species free radicals. Excess free radicals in the body can cause cell damage and pigmentation. Because human skin is directly in contact with oxygen, it will cause skin aging and damage. The supplementation of exogenous SOD is beneficial to delay skin aging, anti-oxidation, and discoloration.
Superoxide Dismutase Applications
SOD is used to make cosmetics, which can be used to remove free radicals that can damage the skin, such as reducing skin fibrosis after breast cancer radiotherapy.
