Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) performed in vitro tests to determine the antioxidant efficiency of the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and superoxide dismutase (SOD). Also, they looked at the increase in the natural production of these antioxidants inside epithelial and endothelial cells.
Using an Assay Design® Stressgen® kit, the scientists measured antioxidant activity and the ability of the antioxidants to reduce oxidant activity. Additionally, several preliminary experiments were done to examine the accuracy of the results based on known standards of antioxidant activity.
The results showed significant, well-defined effects. The cell extracts exposed to ASEA Redox Supplement exhibited eight (8) times the antioxidant efficiency for GPx than those exposed to the saline solution. The SOD antioxidant efficiency was slightly less, with about five (5) times enhancements in efficiency. This efficiency was evident especially at low-level concentrations of ASEA Redox Supplement, tested down to 2.5% of full strength. The scientists saw from these in vitro tests at least a 500% improvement in the overall antioxidant efficiency due to ASEA Redox Supplement exposure.
