    Has anyone every tried supplementing catalase or S.O.D.? Based on some reading I have been doing, they seem to be as important as glutathione for clearing toxins from the cells. Has anyone ever had these levels checked, and if so, where they normal?

    A few years back, I had an Oxidative Stress test (by Genova) showing I was deficient in both glutathione and superoxide dismutase. I currently supplement with acetyl-glutathione and SODzyme (caution, it contains gliadin, a wheat protein known to cause problems for people with celiac disease/leaky gut)

    Interesting. Did you find that you felt better taking the SOD? Did you have any initial side effects?
    Thanks

    I did not feel any kind of immediate improvement. I take it to prevent problems with excessive levels of superoxide, which in turn may lead to elevated levels of peroxynitrate, a very nasty free radical.

    What about non-immediate improvement? :D

    Eheheh, I am actually waiting to see whether SODzyme reverses a few gray hairs I have. Appears to happen to some people.
