SOD that is an acronym for “Superoxide dismutases”.

SOD enzymes are antioxidants that are suppose to wipe out the free radicals, when the SOD enzymes are overwhelmed the damage is done.

Is this about right?

Yep! You got it, same thing for us, Vit C and E are antioxidants etc as well, and reduce the damage. But..........I'm no animal or Human doctor.........but I know a few. Not a job I want!!
