TSI Group’s new compound, Hobamine (2-HOBA) has shown to support cellular health through a unique mechanism.
As science continues to advance, looking at health at a cellular level has more prominant.
“Cellular health matters because it has an important impact on how well our bodies function, repair themselves, produce new body tissue, and much more,” according to Shawn Baier, vice president of business development with TSI Group’s Innovative Products Division. “As we all know, our immune system and how it responds to various stimuli has an effect on our cellular health, both positively and negatively. Cells form tissues, tissues form organs, and organs form systems that make up the body. Cellular health is the microscopic version of overall health—the healthier our cells, the healthier our body will be since our cells will be working optimally and efficiently with one another. “
A Radical Approach to Cellular Health
Oxidative stress is the primary cause of cellular damage. Excessive oxidative stress causes a buildup of a specific class of free radicals that can cause harm to the body. Unfortunately, it’s merely impossible to eliminate all oxidative stress from our lives because of factors such as environment, poor nutrition, excess alcohol, lack of sleep, stress, and/or simply aging.
Hobamine (2-HOBA), a bio-identical, chemically synthesized version of the naturally occurring compound 2-hydroxybenzylamine (2-HOBA) found in the buckwheat plant can help combat oxidative stress. What makes Hobamine unique or even radical is that it works by acting specifically against compounds responsible for oxidative damage without blocking the processes needed for healthy cell function.
“Hobamine (2-HOBA) represents a paradigm shift in the approach to reducing the impact of oxidative stress because it is a selective scavenger of high-impact reactive oxygen species (ROS), specifically isolevuglandins (IsoLGs), but doesn’t interfere with or blunt fundamental physiological processes,” said Baier. “Therefore, 2-HOBA helps to return the healthy balance our cells and bodies need.”
