Nrf2/SOD Enhancer, NOW CALLED N.A.S Enhancer is a combination of well studied nutritional ingredients that are known to activate the basic leucine zipper protein in the NRF2genetic pathway. It is designed to increase the cellular production of antioxidant proteins. This important pathway regulates the production of antioxidant enzymes such as catalase,Glutathione and Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). These antioxidant enzymes are powerful enough to neutralize up to one million free radicals per second.This one to one million ratiohas been shown to be a far more effective approach in combating aging.*
This product is designed to assist those with:
- Antioxidant Support Need*
- High Inflammatory Responses
- Genetic Weakness (SNPs) in the GSTP, GSTM, SOD2 or SOD3 Genes*
- Detoxification Pathway Issues*
- Methylation Deficiencies*
Cruciferous vegetables of the brassica family have long been recognized for their ability to support detoxification thereby maintaining healthy cells and tissues. Cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and kale, are the richest sources of glucosinolates, which are considered to be the most bioactive constituents. Glucosinolates are converted in the body to isothiocyanates after they are ingested and hydrolyzed. The isothiocyanate sulforaphane is one of the most powerful activators of phase II enzyme function in the liver, supporting toxin elimination. Sulforaphane and resveratrol promote the activity of nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2), a transcription factor that supports robust, long-lasting expression of numerous genes responsible for detoxification and protection against oxidative stress.
Among these genes are glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase and various phase II enzymes, such as glutathione sulfotransferases. Nrf2 also supports expression of glutathione glutamylcysteinyl ligase, which is responsible for a critical step in the biosynthesis of glutathione, a vital component of cellular antioxidant and detoxification systems. Found in virtually every cell of the body, glutathione plays essential roles in protein synthesis, synthesis and repair of DNA, enzyme function, transport, and cell maturation. Optimal levels of glutathione have been associated with physical and mental health.*
