Melon Superoxide Dismutase Linked to Reductions in Stress and Fatigue

A recent study suggests that taking a daily supplement of melon superoxide dismutase may be associated with reductions in stress and physical fatigue. It was also found to be associated with better cognitive performance and overall quality of life.

Participants in the study included 61 people who took 10 mg per day of the melon superoxide dismutase or a placebo for three months. Stress and fatigue were measured using four psychometric scales - PSS-14, SF-36, Stroop tests and Prevost scale.

At the conclusion of the study, the supplement group saw an 8.8% reduction in stress, a 9.4% reduction in physical fatigue, and a 13.9% improvement in cognitive performance. Quality of life was also improved.

The researchers believe that these effects could be due to ability of melon superoxide dismutase to fight oxidative stress, which has been linked to stress and mental health issues.

Researchers from Bionov conducted the study. It was published on June 19, 2014, in the journal Nutrients.

Previous studies have found that melon-derived superoxide dismutase may help reduce the risk of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), lower internal inflammation, and reduce pain associated with conditions like arthritis.

While the extract comes from melon, you need to take the hyper-concentrated supplement version in order to get the full health benefits.
