Ingredient supplier TSI Group sits down with Nutritional Outlook to discuss how Hobamine (2-HOBA) is a “breakthrough” ingredient for cellular health.

As an ingredient for healthy aging, Hobamine has a new unique method to combat oxidative stress without blocking normal physiological function and pathways.

What exactly is Hobamine?

Hobamine is a form of the naturally occurring compound 2-hydroxybenzylamine (2-HOBA).  Hobamine works by rapidly capturing specific reactive compounds formed by oxidative stress.   This capture prevents those compounds from binding to and damaging other cellular components like proteins, lipids, or DNA and impeding normal function of the cell. 

Why Hobamine Over Antioxidants?

Antioxidants may not be ideal because they block the development of oxidative stress altogether.  While that sounds like a good thing, our bodies need reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are created during the process of oxidative stress.  Our body needs normal levels of ROS because they are needed for cell signaling and immune system defense. 

Instead of consuming high amounts of antioxidants, TSI proposes supplementing with Hobamine. 

Hobamine – A Breakthrough Hero

“The Hobamine story is about the villain versus the hero. The bad guy is what happens when everyday stress results in highly reactive free radical compounds. The hero, Hobamine, sweeps in to lock out the bad guys, creating a compound that is mere waste.” – Shawn Baier, MS, MBA, Vice President of Business Development at TSI Group

TSI states that Hobamine is the only nutritional intervention on the market to address the negative impact of oxidative stress without blocking the body’s normal, healthy processes.
