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?
