Get the latest in the industry on the development of 2-HOBA.
Greg Macpherson, biotechnologist and founder of SRW Laboratories sits down with Naturally Informed to discuss cellular health, oxidative stress, and how Hobamine can play a role in this.
For more than 30 years Greg Macpherson has worked in the health arena, with a focus over the last decade in the biotechnology sector. He has been specifically studying the aging process at a cellular level. This work led him to writing the book Harnessing the Nine Hallmarks of Aging and then founding the company SRW Laboratories which focuses on formulating natural products to slow the onset of aging and disease.
The Importance of Cellular Health
Cell are the building blocks of the body. They provide your body’s structure and carry out specialized functions important to your health and wellbeing.
Aging begins within your cells, however it’s only recently that scientists have been able to identify what can cause aging in the cells.
Oxidative stress has been shown to be one of the major causes of cellular damage in all human beings. But luckily a new ingredient has proven to bring hope to blunting damage from oxidative stress.
Ingredient at the Forefront of Cellular Health
“Hobamine (2-HOBA) represents a really significant advance in the approach to reducing the impact of oxidative stress because it acts as a circuit breaker between the downstream of fits of oxidative stress and something called an isolevuglandins which is a highly reactive molecule. It’s actually the real reason that oxidative stress is so bad for us and Hobamine does this without blurring what they call healthy reactive oxygens signaling.”

A new ingredient – Hobamine has the potential to help slow down the aging process.
Aging is inevitable but is heavily impacted by our environment from pollution to eating habits. As our body ages there are significant changes to the way the body’s cell’s function. These changes can alter our appearance and the way we feel on the outside.
“By using the nine hallmarks of aging, or identified causes of aging, we can literally reprogram our cells to function at a much younger biological age than our current chronological age,” States Greg Macpheson, biotechnologist, pharmacist, and founder of SRW Laboratories.
A New Discovery for Premature Aging – Hobamine
In the early 2000s, an extract called Hobamine from Himalayan Tartary buckwheat was discovered. Hobamine is a novel molecule for cellular health because it helps prevent oxidative stress without interfering with normal physiological processes that are important to the body.

SRW Labs is changing the science of aging with their innovative cellular health supplements.
For more than a decade the SRW team has been working in the biotechnology sector, focusing on the aging process at a cellular level.
Their work led to the nine identified, scientific hallmarks of aging. This led to creating a supplement line tailored to benefiting health at a cellular level.
A Game Changing Molecule
In their development of this supplement line, one new ingredient that came to the forefront was Hobamine (2-HOBA). This extract from Himalayan Tartary buckwheat has been found to help protect cells from damage caused from environment that leads to premature aging.

SRW Labs new line of products features Hobamine, a new innovative ingredient tied to DNA protection and cellular health.
SRW Laboratories led by founder Greg Macpherson has launched a line of products focused on cellular health supplements. They pride themselves on utilizing innovative ingredients and work with a team of researchers to create unique products to promote health and wellness.
The Discovery of Hobamine
The novel ingredient Hobamine (scientifically known as 2-hydroxybenzlyamine; or 2-HOBA) was discovered by Vanderbilt University scientists through research spearheaded by Dr. Naji Abumrad, who is now a part of the SRW Advisory Board.
In the early 2000s researchers at Vanderbilt developed 2-HOBA (Hobamine) and found it to be an effective ingredient to block the formation of IsoLG protein adducts in platelets and other cells. What they found is that IsoLGs accumulate and can cause a variety of damage to the cell when there are too many of them. What makes 2-HOBA (Hobamine) unique is its ability to act against compounds responsible for oxidative stress without blocking the processes needed for cell function. This is an advanced approach to reducing the impact of oxidative stress.

Epigenetics research surrounding DNA repair has opened the door to new advancements in supplements that could help slow the aging process.
Recent research in Epigenetics has started to look at the aging process from a cellular level, opening new doors at how we may look at preventive health moving forward.
What is Epigenetics?
The dictionary defines epigenetics as ‘the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself’. This means that our behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way our genes work.
Research in this developing field allows scientists to look inside cells and measure the effectiveness of lifestyle and various interventions they are making. In return, this allows us to figure out we can try to prevent or reverse cellular aging.
“Up until now, we’ve aged fairly well with basic lifestyle management and a little luck. Today, we have the precise tools to take it to another level- the cellular level,” said Greg Macpherson, a biotechnologist, pharmacist, and founder of SRW Laboratories.
Protect Your Cells with Hobamine
Hobamine (2-HOBA) is a breakthrough ingredient gaining interest in the market. This ingredient is found naturally in Himalayan Tartary Buckwheat and has shown to protect DNA against free radical damage. It acts as a scavenger for reactive carbonyl species that cause stress in our cells.

An article in 360 Magazine talks about cellular health, free radicals, and a new promising molecule to protect our cells.
Cellular health is becoming a popular topic and the push to be healthier at a cellular level as well.
When we begin the discussion of cellular, eventually the talk of free radicals comes into play. It is believed that these molecules are to blame for many diseases that people suffer from. And that the answer to counteract them is antioxidants but digging deeper we now know that all free radicals are NOT bad.
We actually need free radicals to be healthy. Free radicals are harnessed by our cells to send messages around the cell and between cells. They also are an integral part of our immune system. Free radicals help to slow bugs down while the rest of our immune system is fighting off infection.
While the solution before was to take antioxidants to help get rid of free radicals, we now realize we still need them in the body to function.
Hobamine – The Game Changer for Cellular Health
A new and promising strategy is supplementing with the molecule Hobamine. Hobamine is the patented ingredient scientifically known as 2-hydroxybenzylamine or 2-HOBA. It has been found that this molecule protects our cells from the downstream effects of free radicals while still leaving the healthy free radicals in the body to do their work. This makes Hobamine a game changer when it comes to cellular health.
Hobamine works to mitigate the damage that bad free radicals cause in our cells. Free radicals, when unstable, will damage whatever is closest to them from our DNA to cell machinery and cell membranes. Over time when too much damage has been done, this is where we can see affects as we age. Hobamine can help neutralize this process to improve overall cell health.
