How to Achieve Beautiful, Soft, Healthy Skin Fast

Want beautiful, smooth skin that feels like velvet and also heals quickly?

dioneAt our luxurious skincare practice, team member Dione has been taking GliSODin Nutraceutical supplements for the past few weeks. She recently had surgery, and at the one-week check-up her surgeon was impressed with rate of healing on the incision site. Her swelling reduced quicker than expected, and the incision was already almost healed. Her rate of healing was very quick compared with other patients who had the same surgery and are still dealing with open wounds.

Another benefit that Dione is enjoying is beautiful, smooth skin. Her husband says her skin feels like silk…. Isn’t that a terrific compliment?!

What’s the science behind this internal approach to beautiful and healthy skin?

It’s the power of SOD, also known as the “enzyme of life.”  SOD stands for superoxide dismutase. This is a naturally occurring internal antioxidant in our body. However, the aging body produces less and less of this powerful enzyme that is found in the mitochondria—the “powerhouse of the cell.”

SOD is the major antioxidant enzyme, found in the mitochondria, which has the ability to reduce the damaging effect of free radicals and maximize the lifespan of the cell.

The challenge over the years has been finding a credible source for SOD. Early clinical data was based on injections of SOD from a bovine source, which is no longer allowed due to BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or Mad Cow Disease).

Our experienced physician, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, has researched SODs and found that GliSODin is the first patented technology containing a bioactive form of SOD derived from melon. The plant source called Cucumis melo, known to most as muskmelon, is protected by a gliadin biopolymer layer. This prevents the SOD from being destroyed by the stomach acids so it can be absorbed through the small intestine.

SOD is a primary antioxidant that creates a cascade of reactions to neutralize free radicals – measured at a 1:1,000,000 ratio. Whereas secondary antioxidants, like Vitamin C, have a 1:1 ratio that gives up its electron and dies in the process of neutralizing a free radical.
