AVIGNON, France—A new study confirmed the quick and lasting efficiency of Bionov’s SOD B Extramel in improving mental and physical performance. (Nutrients. 2014 July;6(6) 2348-2359. doi: 10.3390/nu6062348)
SOD B Extramel contains the high activity bioactive SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD) that fights one of the major consequences of stress and mental disorders: oxidative stress. Chronic stress,decreased cognitive performances and physical fatigue are associated with an over-production of Reactive Oxygen Species.
The results showed a significant reduction of stress and physical fatigue, as well as an improvement in cognitive performances and over all life quality. The double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was performed on 61 people. Participants reported a reduction of stress (-8.8 percent) and physical fatigue (-9.4 percent), as well as improved cognitive performances (13.9 percent) after three months of oral supplementation at 10 mg/day.
More than 450 million people worldwide have a mental disorder, according to the World Health Organization. SOD B Extramel represents another solution to the growing segment of stress and cognition. In 2008, it was awarded the European Anti-Stress Promising Ingredient of the Year Award.
Bionov published another study on SOD’s benefits in early 2013.
