Lunasin's Antioxidant Benefits
Nutrition to Fight Free Radicals
Unstable oxygen molecules known as free radicals enter our bodies from a wide range of sources — everything from smoke and unhealthy foods to sunshine and air. Antioxidants in our diet work to neutralize these cell-damaging invaders and include nutrients such as beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E and many more.
Lunasin, a naturally occurring peptide in soy, has been clinically shown to function as an antioxidant in three ways:
- Reduces oxidation of linoleic acid that produces oxygen radicals
- Acts like an oxygen radical scavenger (traditional antioxidant mechanism)
- Reduces oxygen radicals produced by macrophages. Macrophages are highly specialized cells that remove dying or dead cells and cellular debris.
